TrioeciousUncommonly, this species has three sexes with unique designs to their organs.
MaleMulti-chambered penis lined with petal-like raises.
BearerSecretious linings stretch from the fore-wings to the tail over specialized muscles to accommodate the kin fetuses.
HermaphroditeA bulbous rise strongly attached to the hip bone with a circular pattern of fins for grabbing.
Genetics and Reproduction
PenetrationThe mechanical motion where the male inserts itself into either the bearer or the hermaphrodite.
FertilizationThe case of ejaculating into the bearer first, the bearer stores the sperm and waits for a hermaphrodite to contribute an unfertilized egg.
TransferenceThe case of ejaculating into the hermaphrodite first, the hermaphrodite is temporarily pregnant before carefully coordinating with a bearer to take hold of the fertilized egg.
GestationBearers are not labeled as females because they do not appear contribute any genetic material. But their bodies morph into a secondary function as a womb, where gestation continues on until birth.
Ecology and Habitats
Hollow TreeA bundle of a vine-like plant adapted to the weightlessness imposed on the area by the permanently fixed upfall and grew to gigantic size. The vines, being squashed into a limited space, anchor themselves to the earth and grow skyward for several leagues. Male and Hermaphrodites hang on the outside of the hollow tree, presumably acting as sentries; while the barers creep along inside.
Dietary Needs and Habits
BloodSiphoned from both living and dead things through special adaptions in the mouth.
InsectsThe giant creatures that crawl around Deeper Swamp surrounding the Tree.
VanillaBlack flowers which like other plants grow to bigger sizes within the upfall that those without.
Winkin are social animals that display a diverse variety of mating and social systems, including some form of polygyny. Their social organization is fluid and individuals frequently switch between partners and roosting sites.
Uses, Products & Exploitation
Kin DildoA silver phallic, not half-a-bone long, and covered in soft petals. The tip, in particular, is thicker than the rest with six distinct petals clambering over the top and continue in a spiral to the base. When used, the petals open and close with the pulsing motion; along with blows of air from the soft internal chambers that some women full with scented water.
Win CloakThe wings of a dead winkin tend to droop like any fabric but are not as cuttable. Such cloaks are sought after as exotic prizes given the distance to the Hollow and the infrequency of winkin landings.
MaleLong and pointed like a beak with teeth and an extendable tongue.
BearerDeeply depressed maw of a mouth with retractable teeth and lacking notable eyes and nostrils.
HermaphroditeFlat and sunken with conventional human features and pointed ears.
Geographic Origin and Distribution
Winkin are pretty confined to the Hollow Tree. The reason, it is thought, why this aerial species can grow so large is directly due to the known upfalls that makes everything lighter.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
EcholocationWinkin make many high pitch clicks, screams and whistles as they fly around Hollow Tree. Given their bat-like appearance, it is hypothesized that these sounds are useful for navigating the twisting bends between the vine plants that make up the Tree.
Civilization and Culture
Common Myths and Legends
Tonatuih's CleanseThe winged Kin came to be after a group of Cloud people were blown and shredded in the Wind God's fury to such an extent that they were torn into three forms of Winkin: the parts of their formerly human-selves divided in threes among the genders.
MaleAn octopus shaped entity with a pointed head being the central part that connects to four petal-shaped wings with hooked claws at the end.
BearerA fleshy creature with many bony protrusions for legs attached to its three wings and torso, that furl and unfurl to flat or tubular dimensions.
HermaphroditeMore gaunt and bony, like the males, it also has four wings but aligned along a singular plane
Body Tint, Colouring and Marking
MaleA fuzz of a dark feathers
BearerA dirty skin with red and pink veins
HermaphroditeMore gaunt and bony with bright patterns on the under wing
