so the character i’d mentioned before (ivory) is an albino night fury. (her previous design (left) was an attempt to be ~cool albino markings~ because i was. not very smart. the right side is my redesign.
she’s the only albino fury of her family clan to have survived since adulthood, since they’re usually picked off by other hunting animals or vikings. her parents, though, were highly protective of her after her siblings never hatched. her mother was grounded by vikings during an attack while trying to move her away, and her father took her and fled (losing his right eye in the process). her mother has been missing since, confirmed neither alive or dead. ivory can’t go out without another two night furies to cover her if any vikings come by, and usually her father sends a small patrol out nearby in case anything goes wrong. she hates her coloring because of this, so she sometimes sneaks out to fly by rolling in mud so her color is darker.
idk i guess i’m just wondering if having an albino night fury makes sense if it actually has massive drawbacks? i’d imagine not many of them survive for long unless their clan is willing to take the effort to protect them (which is probably only if the parents are the alphas of the clan)
so another character for the night fury thing
her name is taarga, and she’s one of the ancient night furies. morde’s great great great grandmother, to be exact. since most night furies don’t live to see grandchildren, age is a source of respect among clans. night furies of exceptional age (that live to see their great grandchildren) live together in the hive (which does not yet hold the red death due to this story taking place long before then) and make the most important decisions. all ancients have their alpha marks, and these appear when their anger flares.
night furies live in their own society with tiered hierarchy - the older and more respected a fury is, the more power it commands. the highest tiers are the ancients; furies who have lived to see their great-great-grandchildren's hatching and have earned their alpha marks. the ancients make choices for the pack they live with, and often meet up with the ancients of other packs to discuss larger-scale issues. heated discussions between ancients often end with their alpha marks blazing and occasionally a short scuffle to decide who makes the final choice in a matter.
there u go night furies
