Anatomy & Morphology
Physiologically they are very similar to all modern Raptors, they were only slightly different. Their closest living relatives are the Terrestrial Raptors.
Unlike modern Raptors where each subspecies has its own unique colors, Origin Raptors had varying appearances with different color patterns.
Genetics and Reproduction
Reproduction was similar to modern-day Raptors, except that they had broods of up to 4 chicks.
Growth Rate & Stages
The growth rate for children was faster since the Origin Raptors had less knowledge to pass down to their offspring. Origin Raptors were young adults at age 10.
Ecology and Habitats
Most lived in tropical rainforests, but they weren't picky and would live anywhere they could tolerate and find enough to eat.
Dietary Needs and Habits
Origin Raptors were more predatory and ate much more meat than modern Raptors, but they were omnivorous and could eat almost anything.
Similar to modern Raptors, their scales changed color and their feathers molted or grew with the seasons.
One alpha and one beta
Similar to modern Raptors, covered in feathers with a crest
Geographic Origin and Distribution
Slightly less intelligent than modern Raptors, but they were the founders for all modern technology and language
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Their senses were almost identical to modern-day Raptors, but they may have been slightly better
Civilization and Culture
Unknown, it is unclear whether or not naming was in use yet or what type of names would have been given, the first literature seems to have come from the first individuals of each subspecies.
No major cities or kingdoms, only large tribes
Likely the same as in all modern Raptors, well-maintained feathers, well-fed, fit for action
There was likely little gender distinction, however, it is unknown how their culture differed from modern Raptors
Likely the same as other Raptors, singing, dancing, gift-giving to females
Average Technological Level
No advanced technology, the highest level obtained was the ability to melt iron.
Major Language Groups and Dialects
The original language used by all Raptors is still used by every subspecies, however each subspecies has their own dialect
Common Etiquette Rules
Common Dress Code
Unknown, few clothing remains have been found, they may not have worn much clothing
Culture and Cultural Heritage
Unknown, but likely similar to Terrestrial Raptors
Common Customs, Traditions and Rituals
Uknown, some traditions are shared by multiple subspecies and may have originated with the Origin Raptors
Not much is known about these Raptor ancestors except that they were the Raptors that appeared directly after the alien asteroid hit the planet and mutated the Troodon Dinosaurs. These newly evolved Troodons decided to learn how to make tools and create a language, not because they had to, but because they could. They learned how to domesticate species to gain their resources without costly chases. Eventually, different factions of this species broke off and turned into each subspecies that still exists to this day.
