Myrkis Flora & Fauna




Titania, Manenlande

In World

A small, semiaquatic mammal native to Titania; it has long, grey-brown fur (consisting of a cold-resistant undercoat and hydrophobic top coat) with black on its tail and face. They also have webbed toes which allow them to swim easily as they often live in marshlands.
They word myrkis comes from an amalgamation of the words myrland (meaning “swamp”) and kissen (“cat”).


They can grow to approximately 0.8-1.2 meters long -- with the tail making up to a third of the length -- and weigh from 10 to 30 pounds. Females are typically larger than males.\


Myrkis are omnivores and eat a variety of aquatic wildlife, such as fish, amphibeans, and freshwater mollusks. They  also consume the eggs of birds and reptiles and have been known on rare occasions to eat small land prey such as rabbits. During the warmer seasons, they also consume algae, the bark, buds, and stems of leaves, as well as mushrooms and flowering plants like clovers and marshmallow.


Myrkis are fairly social animals with mild natures. They form a strong family structure typically including up to ten members. However, to protect a limited food supply, especially in habitats close to urban development, they can become territorial and aggressive to myrkis who are not part of the local family unit.
They are also very playful creatures and will often be seen sliding down riverbanks or burrowing.


The mating season begins in mid-aderfod and lasts until early oforand, with offspring being born in early Andrad. Usually, the myrkis are born in pairs, but a litter of three or four are not unheard of.


Myrkis coloring will vary depending on their habitat. Those who inhabit swampier areas tend to be darker brown while the variety that lives around rockier rivers and lakes take on a more grey hue.
