Aaree Markings:

While most of the Lupinossai species tend to adopt tattooing, branding or a variety of other personally indelible markings to establish clan/pack lineages, Aaree, the winged, short, Lupinossai species have upon their furred thighs a series of brightly colored plumage that serves no function in flight. Unless one was part of an Aaree clan, one would think this plumage as redundant or residual mutation from the DNA recombination using the Logan's Matrices to create them causing these vestigial feathers to remain. These brightly colored feathers are actually colored by key GATC markers in the Aaree's DNA that are found prominently in each Aaree clan that cause certain colors on the vein like structures of the feathers color coding each Aaree to their clan/pack with a very vibrant passport on their outer thighs.

While working on the rough draft illustrations for the the Aaree reference pictures, it came to our attention the ears on Lupinossai and how Tri-Tipped or three points on the ear pinna or auricle (ear flaps). Much has been debated about why the Lupinossai species is the only species on Sliinkaa to have this unique tri-tipped ear mutation. Depending on the sub-species of Lupinossai, it boils down to the points naturally made by the ears folding up when now stretched out for maximum auditory reception. In later illustrations with the more land based Lupinossai this stretching of the ear pinna will be shown.

With the Aaree, they do not have three points due to folding of the ear pinna. Instead they have one point at the end of the ear pinna like a typical Earth Canine followed by three tips from three feathers that grow from the base of the ear and travel along the base of the ear pinna. Many nations once thought that these feathers were a subset of tribal markings like the thigh feathers being they are often vibrant in color. Medical records from released Humaran laboratory documents prove this erroneous. The three feathers on either side of the head act as pressure sensors and thermal detectors as the Aaree fly, these feathers are sampling the air current every second of the flight.

The feathers along the ears can however be used to denote roughly an age of an Aaree. The more vibrant and colorful, the younger the Aaree is in age. The duller and more notched the feathers are, the older the Aaree is as the body is no longer producing the needed keratin and follicle nutrients to allow the feathers to remain pliable and air tight. It is rumored as well that because of this exact issue with the feathers leads to a growing suspicion of more elder Aaree taking up more ground residence and refusing to fly as they can no longer read the air currents accurately resulting in severe injuries from plummeting out of the air.
