Leupak Genetic Modifiers
For use with the Leupak Creation Guidesheet.
Albinism causes a lack of pigment in the leupak's skin, scales, eyes, and (if applicable) hair. As a result, the leupak's eyes are much more sensitive to light.
Abnormally fat even for its species, these leupaks tend to be near-spherical as a result of their increased girth and rubbery skin. They waddle about awkwardly, though most physical attacks are utterly harmless to them.
These leupaks were born with a venom gland malfunction, leaving them unable to produce miratoxin in any significant quantity.
This leupak's muscle mass is twice normal, making it seem much more lean than typical specimens. It lumbers about slowly, but is crushingly powerful.
Overproduction of melanin turns the leupak black, though patterns can still be seen when light is shone upon it.
The leupak physically cannot speak. It may optionally be able to vocalize slightly, but cannot form words or sentences.
Pygmy leupaks resemble hatchlings, with round, cute features, larger heads, and smaller statures than normal.
This leupak's genes have been unkind to it-- it is naturally frail, prone to disease and tires easily.
Skeletal leupaks are born without the species's typical layer of blubber, leaving them underweight. The skin is drawn tightly over the body, leaving ribs, spine and eggsac to show underneath.
These leupaks are not quite as intelligent as their brethren, typically possessing animal intelligence similar to that of corvids or canines. They cannot learn to speak, but can be taught to understand simple language commands.
Venom-gushing leupaks have overproductive venom glands; miratoxin constantly oozes from their mouths in a steady stream if not otherwise blocked (in which case it steadily builds up within them).
These leupaks are prized for venom-milking.
