Physical Description

Marmics appear to be larger than average cats. They are generally very thin, and they lack any fur. Their front legs have a few colorful feathers on them, as if their legs was in the middle of turning into a wing. Marmics generally come in different shades of gray, with the only color on them being their eyes and the feathers on their front legs. Most of marmics' height comes from their long legs, which they use to get around cities. Tamed or pet marmics are much more colorful, sometimes coming in desaturated reds or light blues. Their feathers are much bigger and brighter.

Behavior

When marmics are first born, they are completely mute. As they grow and pick up phrases and sentences from around them, they start to form a particular phrase or sentence that they like. This is what they will say for the rest of their lives. They do not know what they are saying, and as such most of them just say a random string of words. Sometimes, if only kept around animals and the like, marmics will instead make a sound that is a combination of multiple other animals.

Marmics are usually loners, and will dislike meeting any other marmics. If one marmic has the same phrase as another marmic, they will battle to the death, or until one gives up and changes its phrase. Most marmics are extremely skittish of anything other than a marmic approaching them. Tamed or pet marmics are very calm, and will not run away if approached.

Subspecies

Muttmic: A muttmic is very similiar to a marmic, but instead of a cat, it is a hairless dog. Muttmics are much more common as pets, and are a lot tamer than marmics. Muttmics and marmics do not like each other.

Special

Copycat: Marmics will copy anything they hear for the first three or four years they are alive. After that, they will choose one phrase to copy and will copy it for the rest of their lives.

Trivia

• The most popular phrase a marmic has copied is "Who you gonna call?"

• Some people like to collect marmics who have phrases that are particularly interesting or funny. This sometimes leads to guests being puzzled as to who keeps asking for the salt.
