Miasmon Bestiary 6: Merrowet

◊ Posted by A β Pseudolonewolf
Categories: Miasmon Miasmon Bestiary


Types: Humanoid / Aquatic

This was the second family of monsters that I designed, I think, meant as the water-type starter. I wanted a Bestial starter and a Humanoid one, as well as covering the basic elements.

It's not something I'd expect people to consider 'cool', though; it's one of those things that makes up the numbers unremarkably, or which plays a specific role in opponents' parties or something.

Like Sparkpup, they don't appear in the wild, and likely won't be obtainable in the first chapter.

They're based on sprites and pixies and little curly-shoed elves and such, and are mischievous and probably giggly.
Their head shape is based on a water droplet, but also on those floppy hats that gnomes and some depictions of forest spirit people, or Link, tend to wear.

Age set to 0

Some accounts have apparently got their age set to 0.
I've changed a few dates of birth manually when people approach me about it, and when I do, I usually notice that the month and day are set correctly, but the year is 2011.

I don't know whether this is a bug, or simple carelessness on the part of the people signing up. I mean, most people didn't encounter this problem...

Anyway, if your age IS set to 0, please post here, with your date of birth, and I'll fix it for you.
I'd also appreciate it if you'd tell me whether you were careful or not when filling up the join form... Please don't just lie to look good; if there's no problem to solve, that will spare me the time and effort of looking into it.

Miasmon Bestiary 5: Sparkpup

Types: Bestial / Flame

This rather Pokemon-like monster was the first one that I designed, I think... Or actually, I started with its fully evolved form, then went backwards to this, so this was at least the first family I came up with.

I'm surprised at how cutesy the monsters I've uploaded so far have been; I wasn't really expecting there to be so many. o_O

Anyway, I can't really draw cute furry animals very well, dogs being no exception, so there are faults with the anatomy of this that I'm aware of. Oh well; you get the general idea anyway.

Sparkpup was going to be one of the three starters before I added Protonculus and decided to go down a somewhat different route to Pokemon.

It will appear in chapter 1, but only when used by a plot character that you battle against; getting one yourself couldn't happen until a later chapter, and it wouldn't be easy. They can't be found in the wild.

Anyway, they're very loyal and have fiery breath; they're just what you'd expect from a flame-type dog thing!
Their large ears are inspired by fennec foxes, and their esoteric name is derived from 'Sparkpup', which is the name of this monster, which means 'Sparkpup'.
