Biology

      Luothina is a quadruped Pokémon based on canines- specifically wolves and foxes. Its fur is mostly short and smooth, except for a patch of fluff on its chest. The bottom half of its body is dark brown, leading to a wavy pattern along its neck, while the top half is a lighter brown. The two shades are separated by a strip of black fur, which is thicker than that of the rest of its body. This strip circles around its rear beneath its tail, and stops at its sholders on both sides, where patches of feathers and thick fur tufts rest, appearing like tiny wings. Its tail is long and covered with thick, messy, light brown fur. Each of its legs ends with tufts of black fur covering its paws. The tufts on the front paws have long, wavy fur at the tops and small, black feathers on the backs, while the back paws have shorter fur and larger feathers. Each of its paws have three toes with sharp, pointed claws. Its head resembles that of a wolf, with a short snout and a smooth, black nose. It has a reddish purple tongue and four sharp fangs around its set of teeth. Its eyes are green, with a black design around them resembling a mask, with two points at the front and three at the back. Its ears are long and pointy, standing straight up on its head. The inner edges have two notches near the top, while the outer edges have one large notch towards the bottom.

      In its Adamant state, Luothina has two primary differences to note. It gains a pair of feathered wings from the tufts on its sides, each extending out the length of its body. The wings have a set of black feathers, overlaying another set of dark brown feathers, and then another set that fades to a lighter brown. Its eyes turn from green to golden yellow, with its irises becoming slits, and the black patterns around them gain an extra point on the back at the bottom, longer than the others. Its fur also becomes somewhat smoother.

      Luothina is highly agile, using clever tactics to confound its targets rather than attacking them head-on. It focuses on using attacks at range, keeping its distance as much as possible to avoid direct attacks, and forcing its enemies to close the distance before they can land a hit on it. In its Adamant state, it becomes much faster, and is capable of flying at high speed. It also becomes more aggressive, using physical attacks more often, and often swooping down on its targets from the sky before they have a chance to react. In groups, these Pokémon fight with carefully coordinated attacks, each one supporting the others to take down their enemies with near-perfect teamwork. They train most of their lives to work together, however they are more than capable of taking on opponents on their own. Due to the nature of the world they're from, they are rarily seen, still not trusting others very much and staying cautious at all times. Due to its species being native to the realm of Liathear, each one has abilities unique to itself.


Pokédex Entry

      While Luothina doesn't have an official record in the Pokédex, Nikos made a document on the species in his PHANTOM server:
Luothina is a rare species originating from a distant realm called Liathear, where it faced near-extinction due to a recent and unspecified cataclysmic event. It is able to shift between two states and use Dragon-type moves. This Pokémon is reserved in nature, usually staying away from others and making its presence known only when it feels it is necessary.
