Talokun - Animal Species Sheet by Ulario Talokun - Animal Species Sheet by Ulario
A re-doing of the Talokun species sheet. This species has been with me for a long time and were inspired by the Acklay of the Star Wars Universe (the head, anyways).

The companion piece to my Syvorian species sheet, since you cannot have the Syvorian without the Talokun. The two species share a distant ancestor, and the Syvorians see the Talokun as being a sacred beast.

The word "Talokun" derives from the Syvorian words "Talos" (head) and "Kuna" (diamond). So their name literally means "Diamond Head".

If you want to play with them and draw pictures of them or what not, I don't care. Just be sure to follow the rules! Just scroll down to the specific rules for animals. Since I've had issues with people trying to steal this species in the past, I urge you to please be respectful with them and don't try to steal. Also, don't take it upon yourself to do a flying subspecies of the talokun... because... yeahhhh.... someone once tried to do that.

This picture is meant to focus on my notes about the species and putting a definite design down on paper rather then writing a masterpiece. I usually catch most typos, but some slip by me. If you see one and it bugs you, please send a note rather then publicly announcing it. Thank you!

As an answer to your wondering in Character Creation Rules (about "why use animals") - animals were alread used as characters in actual books (like Jack London's novels), so I don't see a problem. About Talokun - what about a story about one special Talokun? I mean, sort of invincible predator, that survived contacts with hunters and eventually learned how to fight them, defeating and killing a number of them - thus gaining quite a fame.
The actual story would then be about a team of hunters, who would work together and attempt to hunt down that Talokun - and therefore become famous. Instead, Talokun would in turn start hunting them and killing them one by one...

That actually would be quite fun :). Maybe you would actually make such story/comic?

I'd like to do a similar story, along with a hundred other stories from my galaxy. Maybe in the future.
