Physical Description

Ogomi, quite simply, resemble sheets of white paper which have been folded into distinctly avian forms. Their feathers typically look flat and lifeless, but in reality have the normally expected texture of fluffy, bird feathers. This difference can often be used to easily identify if what appears to be an ogomi, is, in fact, an ogomi, or if it is actually a piece of paper. Additionally, although not immediately noticeable, ogomi do have small, slit-like eyes and compact, yet powerful jaws. They are usually quite angular in appearance with stiff-looking joints, but despite their appearances, ogomi are actually quite agile and can move with great speed when in distress or when hunting.

A useful trick that the ogomi have up their sleeves is that of fantastic aerodynamic potential. They can easily do this by contorting their bodies, which they have ample control over, so that they are more compact and sleek. They can also manipulate their bodies so that they appear to have flattened themselves to the width of a slip of paper, yet, this is all just a mere illusion as they still remain at a more believable width. Really they’ve only contorted themselves in such a way as to appear flat while holding still as to not break the illusion. This is a useful tactic for avoiding predators or to lie and wait for unsuspecting prey.

Behavior

Ogomi are usually rather playful and will play with each other quite often. If someone has befriended an ogomi they will usually be pestered to spend time and attend to their ogomi’s active nature. Ogomi will become much less attentive and alert when they are playing, and as such, this is usually the time when predators take to attack the ogomi. When the ogomi become startled though they will instinctively "unfold" themselves to attempt and hide.

They are quite trusting, the ogomi are, and are easily tamed because of this. Ogomi aren’t all that useful in any particular task though, so those who tame ogomi usually do so for fun or to get a new pet of sorts. Any avid ogomi owner should be warned though, that ogomi, as a rule of thumb, are highly hydrophobic and prefer to handle their own hygiene.

Subspecies

Mogomi: These are ogomi which are mammalian in appearance in contrast to the avian appearance of ordinary ogomi. Mogomi are also generally larger than ogomi, being about 1.5 to 2 feet in height. Besides these physical differences, mogomi tend to eat less insects than ogomi and eat more meat, though they usually eat about the same amount of grasses and fruits.

Special

Hidden in Plain Sight: Ogomi, with their adept abilities at illusions and manipulations of their bodies, are able to contort themselves to blend in with many different surroundings. They usually try and minimize the amount of space they appear to take up, but can also try and blend in with the surroundings if applicable.

Trivia

• Despite having so little meat on their bones, what little they have is actually prized for its magnificent flavor and versatile seasoning options and is sought after by many elite chefs and gourmands.
