And a brand-new species to go with the koalgres— the crocine, which is also an Anshe native.
There isn’t much physical difference between the tainted (actual natural!) and natural (actual vital), because the changes are mostly internal. Vitae-affected crocines are monotremes, like echidnas or platypuses, and have poisonous saliva. True natural crocines are shy marsupials, and are much shyer than their vital counterparts.
I’m actually way sadder that you can’t see the vital’s silly raptor claws than I am about the natural’s resize— the natural was meant to show off the crocine’s anatomy more than anything. Marsupial tails can be hard to work with. :c
