Physical Description

Roximur are medium-sized marsupials, around 3 feet tall. They have large arms that extend into claws that provide support for their upper body. Their legs, in comparison, are skinny and far weaker. On their stomachs, all roximur possess a pouch for carrying young. Their arms, tails, and ears are striped with variating color rings, usually darker than their base fur tone. Roximur possess three eyes and smallish mouths, with no visible noses.

A roximur's most distinct feature is their arms, which are are extremely strong, and roximur rely on for most movement and fighting abilities. Their tails however are equally powerful and can be used to hold onto objects or hang from suspended areas like branches.

Roximur experience slight sexual dimorphism with the females of the species usually being smaller and having more stripes, though a larger female with fewer markings is possible.

Behavior

Roximur are social creatures, and very familially focused. Most of them spend their time scavenging for food and carrying their young, but can easily put up fights with their powerful claws. They will enjoy fighting for practice but rarely will initiate fights if unneeded.

In the wild, roximur will usually keep to their own habitat and leave civilizations alone aside from the occasional scavenging through waste. On the other hand domesticated roxiumur are very friendly and loyal companions to those who have raised them or those they grow attached to in other times of their lives. Often these domesticated forms of the species will be more comfortable with crowds and act as watchdogs or protectors of their area, especially of their owners.

Subspecies

Wimp: While the wimp is a demeaning name for this subspecies of roximur, it is accurate. This subspecies lacks the same muscle buildup within the arms and is an overall lithe and unsettling creature. Luckily, the wimp has increased mobility due to this diffusion of muscle and can move around quickly with grace and agility. These kinds are rarely domesticated as they aren't seen as much of as protectors, guard dogs, or fighting animals, and so remain wilder than their beefy counterparts. This had lead to them being seen as inherently more feral and angry.

Special

None.

Trivia

• Instead of the normal obstacle course or obedience competitions, many roximur owners will have their pets participate in arm wrestling matches!

• Roximur love to climb, and often will attempt to climb and hang off of the limbs of their owners or companions.

• Domesticated roximur may carry around smaller animals in their pouch as a way of 'adopting' them if they lack a pup.
