Attack Method: Emoza will use their hands and sharp teeth to aim for the weakest spots in their enemy and tear at them viciously until the enemy or themselves perish, using their wings to hit them around the head and daze them.
Emoza believe that the plants around them contain spirits of past lives, and have such grown to live as a part of the forest around them.
Emoza are lanky with long arms and legs, with the shortest being six feet and the tallest being seven. Once an emoza reaches sixty years old they are reached their full height. There is no gender dimorphism to speak of and therefore pronouns are chosen based on only personal preference. On top of this, emoza are single sexed and any are capable of laying up to thirty eggs at a time. They are mostly featureless beings with two eyes and a single mouth filled with sharp teeth, also possessing sharp steel-like fingers. Their eyes are strictly a singular primary color and variations can only be seen in hybrids. Bodies are a single color, a gradient that is darkest around their chest and lightest at their hands and feet. This gradient can be any color from a gray to a neon pink, but darker, muted colors are the most common, of colors similar to the environment they live in.
Emoza have two large wings sprouting from their back that can come in a variety of shapes and styles. These wings are always cream-colored or white, and always stylized in some way. Examples of how they can be decorated includes being dyed, pierced, tying cloth, beads, or even painting patterns on. This is so common in their culture, only the royal family has non-stylized wings.
As babies, or chicks, emoza are tiny and covered in soft down. This down falls out once the chick is old enough to start functioning on it’s own, and it disappears fully once the emoza is thirty years old. There is about one in ten chance that an emoza will never lose their fluff, and these are viewed as more immature and childish due to the origin of an emoza’s chest down.
Emoza walk around constantly promoting a certain emotion. As such their behavior and personalities are widely ranged and based upon which emotion that they promote. An emoza that promotes grief will approach people with a very heavy walk and a dragging, slow voice. They will constantly frown or look ready to cry and their wings may never fly unless needed. An emoza that promotes excitement will often walk around preppily and always tell people to cheer up, ready to take off at any moment.
What is odd is that there is no such thing as an emoza that promotes love of any kind. All emoza seem to lack any true sense of the word or its meaning up to basic understanding, leading to them appearing or acting insensitive. Emoza have an odd stance towards love, seeing is it as a sort of soulmate situation. There is ‘another half’ of an emoza out there, either being platonic, romantic, familial, or even a simple love for a food or scene, such as an aesthetic. As it’s possible to have more than one type of soulmate at a time but not two of same type if it regards to people, there is a debate over if an emoza soulmate is rather a belief than a genetic trait. Seeing as how even young children raised off planet show similar beliefs, the only difference being they lack a name for this feeling, others believe that it is genetically ingrained.
An emoza often starts promoting an emotion by which one they've been influenced by the most, one they felt often during childhood or perhaps just one they naturally feel most of the time. This is decided as they grow older but this means in no way that a promoted emotion is set in stone. Drastic events can change the emotion that is being promoted, but generally the promoted emotion stays the same throughout an emoza’s life.
With them so clearly emotional, emoza prefer honesty, especially when it comes to the self, but recognize when it needs to be held back or when all of it doesn’t need to be told. Bonds and family are very important to them and can be hard to form with an emoza.
When an emoza dies they are taken to the base of a tree and buried among the roots due to a belief that the whispering plants on their native planet used to be their ancestors.
During the early stages of emoza development, they lived far closer to the ground than they do now.
As time went on and they evolved, and as did their environment, the emoza lived closer and closer to the clouds, staying high up in the trees and making their own culture. A war constantly threatened between them and the duyami, but it never actually happened even as a few fights broke out between them.
A ruler was declared during their development of society, and the royals of today can be recognized by their distinct lack of decorated wings.
The emoza have been known to take their need for a monarch seriously, demanding that at least one person at a time be ruler. In a period where this did not happen, there was much bloodshed and inner conflict, between the group that did not want for royalty any longer and the group that wished for monarchy to continue. Eventually monarchy ruled out again, and currently the queen is fairly young emoza who is said to have gained the seat through questionable means.
They are, for the most part, extremely loyal to their ruler no matter who it is.
Due to how easily children can come about and how many are born at a time, the emoza on Chyta have developed a small adopting trading system of their chicks, the age limit of an adopted chick being an egg to two years old. This system has existed for roughly four generations, and therefore not all members in an emoza family are related. People coming from off-planet are allowed to adopt them, but must meet the required legal terms in order to do so.
Chyta is covered in grasslands and plains of all types, clusters of tall forest trees interrupting the otherwise perfectly covered grass planet. Prairies, savannas, meadows, all kinds of lengths and types, it’s quite varied in grass, and nearly nothing but it.
Regeneration: Emoza heal quicker than expected. Deep scratches may heal in hours, while a broken arm might heal in less than a week. Limbs are able to be grown back. Due to this fast pace, scars are common and it is easy for something to heal the wrong way. Unfortunately, emoza cannot grow back their wings with success.
• Emoza names are most often related to birds, such as bird constellations, wing anatomy, etc, but other names are not uncommon.
• Promoting a single emotion does not stop an emoza from having other feelings. They simply promote their single emotion the most often.
• There is a mention of an emoza that promotes an emotion that is assumed to be cheerfulness, but if anyone asks an emoza about them they'll appear to have no idea.
