Not including their ears, Fabremon typically stand at about five feet tall, so about average in comparison to the wide variety of Lythians. Rather than fur or skin, their bodies are made entirely out of fabric, such as minky, cotton, and velvet, and a single individual may contain multiple textures. In the same vein, Fabremon do not have organs and are full of stuffing, which help their bodies hold some shape; as a result, they are incredibly flexible and can bend over backwards completely, as well as switch from bipedal to quadrupedal locomotion. Because of the nature of their makeup, many will equip themselves with a sewing kit to give themselves additional modifications. However, others may choose to remain true to their original form, comfortable in their own fabric.
All Fabremon have at least one zipper that spans across their body, though it is possible to have multiple of varying sizes, lengths, and styles. These zippers can be opened up to reveal the Fabremon’s stuffing or even be lined to create pockets. Much like a Nitpicki
’s pouch, a Fabremon can store things inside their zippers. One must be careful, however, as zippers aligned with the chest of a Fabremon may allow direct contact with their gemstone.
Located inside a Fabremon’s chest is a purified gemstone that is the artifact in which their spirit resides. All Fabremon are extremely protective of their gemstone; while they aren’t able to perish through injuries or disease, shattering their gemstone will force the soul out of the vessel, rendering it back into a pile of fabric. Cracks and imperfections are also unpleasant to deal with, usually resulting in fits of exhaustion, burnout, and fogginess until the gemstone is mended.
All Fabremon are created with a hood. The reasoning behind the hood is not entirely known, but it is assumed it is excess fabric because souls don’t always completely fill up the vessel they inhabit. This results in hoods of varying sizes and styles; it is said that, like a snowflake, each hood is unique, and no two are exactly the same. Most like to keep the hood pulled up, as it seems to offer them comfort, though it is possible to pull them down and back.
Fabremon’s ears are incredibly keen when it comes to vibrations and energy sources, able to sense even the most silent of walkers and fliers in a radar-like fashion. However, most seem to have terrible voice recognition, and will often have trouble recalling the voices of even individuals they’re familiar with. Some Fabremon may even have their ears entirely attached to the hood instead of their skull, yet they still function just the same.
Rather than paws or fingers, Fabremon have claws made of some sort of hard synthetic material, such as plastic. The size of their forearms and feet can vary, depending on the amount of stuffing in those specific limbs and what the Fabremon needs. Some lack thumbs, while others will opt to sew on the opposable digit for convenience. Some may also choose to cover their claws in fabric, giving them a coating that matches their body’s coloration and texture.
Typically very squishy, a Fabremon’s tail is widely used for expression, but is also a dark magic reserve, similar to a gecko storing fat in its tail. It additionally makes for a relaxing stress toy, and many will hug or play with their tail for comfort or when deep in thought. If prompted through stress or the need to retreat from a fight, a Fabremon is able to drop their tail. In the event of this, the excess dark magic will cloud the area, similar to a smoke bomb. Once retreated, the Fabremon will need to absorb more dark magic in order to regrow their tail.
