Origin Tale

Lyara’s Gift

The deity Lyara sometimes takes the physical characteristics of two Lythians and blends them into a new being, one that is young and new to the world, before depositing them… somewhere. They may or may not require a guardian to watch over them, depending on their individual personalities, so many things come with the roll of a dice. In fact, Lyara will sometimes just create one from scratch, or even gift an offspring to unsuspecting Lythians!

Sometimes these gifts will come with the blessing of different species’ traits, resulting in a crossbreed.

Origin Quest

Crossbreed species have inherited the traits of both of their parents, as granted by Lyara during their creation. A crossbreed child may choose to participate in either of their species origin stories, or complete a mix of both.

Please portray your crossbreed Lythian using their baby design or an adolescent design that’s not quite their adult form yet.

See more information about origin story quests on the Origin Stories page.


✦ Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know which species quests my crossbreed can complete?
The Lythian’s crossbred species will be listed on their profile, under the "Species Info" tab. You may complete either of the parents' origin quests, a combination of the two, or something completely up to you!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a crossbreed?
You need to acquire a Gem Baby Crossbreed Slot, a Baby Crossbreed Slot or order a custom from one of our resident guest artists. Both of these options are only available during certain periods, so watch the announcements!

How do asterisk'd body types and subspecies work with crossbreeds?
Crossbreeds are free to use whatever body types and subspecies desired from their parent species! They don't need to use items like regular Lythians. They're unable to use mythical subspecies unless they complete that specific Mythical Ascension Quest. However, it should be noted that body types and subspecies will not be reflected on your crossbreed's index entry, which will only list their parent species.

Can I base my crossbreed on existing characters?
You can base your crossbreed on one to two existing characters owned by yourself or others (with their permission). However, this is not required.
