My current original species that I have been developing have been lacking a true name. I call them Elute for easier call back but that name is just a spur of the moment decision that does not carry any real meaning.
Elute is a word that is related to chemistry and I don't see a strong tie with my creatures. I need some names... I don't know what to really call them.
The creatures under this name includes:
Aria, Requiem, Aurora, Melke, and(Some other unnamed creatures in progress)
Here is some info so that you might be able to help me (or maybe nobody will see this and it will forever be forgotten in my journal pool of shame)
This species consists of small furry creatures that have the innate ability to conjure forth wings and take flight. They possess something known as an Index stone/gem that they carry and integrate into their daily wear as they would not let it out of their sight. These creatures have the ability to use magic in their own way and form that is dictated by their soul.
Able to use magic
Able to fly
Carries a gemstone with them at all times
The Index Stone/Gem:
These creatures are born out of magical energy and during their birth, a stone will be forged out of the leftover energy. These are their own spirit stones. They are eternally connected to their owners and serves as a mirror to their personality and soul. The stone transforms into their true form as gemstones when the time was right. The light and new brilliance from their new form unlocks their owner's respective powers.
The gemstone acts a unique artefact to its owner, allowing them to use their power with ease and added effect. In any other hands, it is just a normal gemstone. The gemstone glows and shines brightly when the owner remembers and stay true to their strongest virtue but dims and dulls when despair and hopelessness reign supreme. This darkness in the gem is called taint. Taint weakened the gem's effects and also makes it structurally weaker.
Though unthinkable and rare occurrence, the gemstone is breakable when it is fully corrupted with taint. If it breaks, something bad happens. (this is a spoiler in ORACLE, both in Aurora's story and Aria's story >.<)
There are two major distinction races in this species: Genesis and Exodus.
The two races are based on individual virtues and wishes, thus interchangeable.Before the index stone transformations, everyone is classified under one common name:Nullus
The two races are visibly distinct in their wings. Genesis have bright wings while Exodus have dark wings. Both of the races have a subclass ahead of the norm, reserved for elite Genesis or Exodus who have strong latent magical ability. The highest level Genesis are called Arbiters and the most respected Exodus are known as Harbingers.
There is a third classification for hybrid creatures as well.
Wow that's a lot of info I have for you... If you are still around... I need a name for them
Since I have an emphasis on their gemstones, I was thinking of calling something related to it.
