Pro-Gs are sleek, bipedal, and lack defined muscles, but stand at an average of eight feet (not including ears or tail), though commonly are anywhere between six to ten feet tall. Despite their towering stature, they are disproportionately light and could probably be picked up and carried by most other species. Their bodies are mainly matte or furred, and the length and style of the fur can vary; its coat is made of an oddly reflective substance that mimics the skin’s tone.
Their ears are incredibly sensitive, capable of swiveling around to pick up sounds and display a wide range of emotions. They come in different sizes, shapes, and styles, and some may have a needle-thin skin tag that curls off the tip of the ear. These tags vary in appearance and can detect even the slightest vibrations in the air. The inside of the ear is always bare and furless, but the edges may be furred.
Pro-Gs have three eye styles (as pictured above). The most common style consists of only two parts of the eye: an iris and a sclera. In such cases, the sclera is darker than the iris, which is usually filled or ringed. The iris is subtly bioluminescent, so is always a brighter, lighter color. Those with solid eyes have bioluminescence applied to the entirety of it. The glow does not aid the Pro-G’s sight in any fashion, but is a signature tell of one’s appearance in the dark. They also have backwards tear ducts, appearing at the end of the eye rather than the front. These tear ducts show off the Pro-G’s blood color, which is made from a modified hemoglobin that results in Pro-Gs having varied blood colors depending on their genes.
The snout is typically tapered or ovicular, and featureless. However, with the use of minor psychic shifting, a Pro-G’s mouth and nostrils can be exposed. They normally do not don these features unless they need to eat or clear out infections, as their respiratory system does not require oxygen intake. The teeth of a Pro-G are sharp and are that of a facultative carnivorous species, meaning they thrive best on a meat-based diet but can do just as well omnivorously. Their tongue is long and prehensile, and can serve as a basic extra limb if all others are occupied.
The limbs of a Pro-G are disproportionately short compared to their body, giving them a bipedal, salamander-like appearance. They are positioned to the sides of the body and do not allow them to manipulate large, heavy objects, further stunting any muscle growth. Thus, walking is typically an awkward event, so most opt for levitation and flight. To make up for their lack in strength, the arms of a Pro-G are particularly nimble and dextrous. Typically tendrilous but capable of forming as many fingers (and thumbs) as desired with the aid of psychic shifting, they allow the creature to perform delicate tasks. The feet are also tendril-like in nature and aid the Pro-G in steering during flight, but cannot be altered by psychic shifting. When it comes to standing, they can either stand on their toes or sit on their haunches, giving either a digitigrade or plantigrade look.
Incredibly sensitive and prehensile, the tail is a Pro-G’s most important attribute in keeping balance on two legs, as well as providing mobility while levitating. It directly extends off the Pro-G’s whole body rather than just the spine, making the hip and waist region undefined. This creates a silhouette that’s one fell swoop. The tail will often wag and sway when a Pro-G is in deep thought, and can also be used to portray other emotions. Additionally, Pro-Gs will typically curl tails with one another if they have a form of relationship.
✦ Psychic Energy
Pro-Gs have a unique form of energy known as "psychic." As they are not native to Lyth, this energy is not stored or harnessed through a core or charges. Instead, their fluid bodies create a sort of feedback loop, allowing this energy to double back and build upon itself, growing stronger each time. Psychic is what gives Pro-Gs the ability to levitate, fly, shift, and perform telekinesis. They also use it to speak telepathically, due to their underdeveloped vocal cords; if one tries to speak, they produce sounds that are more mechanical than organic, with vocalizations ranging from deep chirruping to shrill humming to sharp shrieking to rumbling revving. Ultimately, the way psychic manifests vary greatly depending on the individual; some are able to use it to mimic elemental magic. A Pro-G’s height is an indicator of the amount of psychic they have, with the taller and more elongated individuals having the necessary mass to hold more.
✦ Dyes & Tattoos
Pro-Gs don’t naturally have markings, oftentimes only having a fade on their extremities, freckles, or beauty marks. However with the introduction of the realms, Pro-Gs have delved into the realm of modifying their appearance with Dyes and/or Tattoos. These allow themselves to appear more colorful and mimic the appearance of markings, fitting in all the better with fellow lythians. Those more adept at psychic shifting are also capable of altering themselves to obtain markings.
