Andy by GreekCeltic Andy by GreekCeltic
While it may not be canon, Herman and Jacky adopt a kid in their whatayarn AU. They adopt a Kaldel (a shapeshifter, like Jacky!). Kaldels have a form of imprinting and can grow up resembling parents they're not related to, while still retaining some traits of their birth parents. Andy is HYOOGE and looks a lot like a fleshy Herman. His canines are awkward and enormous. Compared to Jacky's (which are sharp looking but tiny).

Now.. about Dogdays. Dogdays is a second generation 'shydog'. Kaldels don't start shapeshifting until around puberty. There is no such thing as a baby Shydog. The form is passed down as a tradition, not genetically. Traditionally Kaldels take the form of their tribe. There is no Shydog tribe, so he takes after momma.

Ashley Lee 2014 Kaldels/Shydog are not an open species, sorry!

Wow, what a cool design! I really like the design of the character in both his human and in his creature form, and I like the backstory of the species too. The stripe patterns are cool and I like the orange that slowly fades into a gold/yellowish colour. Great style. :)

I really like the idea that the transformation form is a tradition, not a genetic thing. How rare is it for Kaldels to meet each other in Jacky's generation?
