This is just for fun and if you adopt one of them you don't have to follow this canon if you don't want to.

Charmine Basic Info


Charmines by Pyro-Zombie

---------------------------------------------------------------

Story and Behavior


Charmines are mystical creatures with the ability to grant good luck or bad luck to others. Not much is known about who created them but it's said that they were created out of an act of mercy to help people in hard times bringing good luck to them or to punish bad people by causing them bad luck

Despite they were created to bring help to others, these little guys are known for their mischevous behaviour as they are aware of how valuable is their ability and know that they can take adventage of it, for this purpose, they usually put conditions or demand something in exchange of their abilities, most commonly they ask for gifts, usually things that they like (food, toys, money, etc) or things with a great sentimental value, sometimes instead of asking for things in return they put conditions on how to manage the luck they give, as they consider it makes it more fun and interesting

In some cases, they may get attached to a person enough to offer them their abilities without expecting anything in return, this may also happen if they feel they owe something to the person

There are three types of Charmines:

Charms by Pyro-Zombie
> Good Charm: The most common type, these are Charmines with the ability to grant only good luck

> Bad Charm: The uncommon type, Charmines with the ability to grant only bad luck. They're Charmines that were cursed and due to it, their Charm has been corrupted. They always have Colored Sclera but not always have horns, however the chance for them to have horns is higher than the other types

> Demi Charm: The rare type, these are Charmines with the ability to grant either good or bad luck, but unlike the Bad Charm type, they're not under the influence of a curse and instead they were created to have both abilities. They always have Colored Sclera in one eye and usually some type of Halo, they have a bigger chance to have wings than the other types

---------------------------------------------------------------

The Charm


May the Luck be With You by Pyro-Zombie

Charm is the name of Charmines ability to generate luck. When using their ability the create an "amulet" that will transfer the Charm to the target as long as they're in contact with it, this amulet has the shape of the Charmine's tail but is smaller and can be carried as some sort of accessory (keichain, earring, toy, etc) by the person, once the effect of the Charm is over the amulet dissapears and the Charmine will have to wait aroud 5-10 hours to being able to create a new one

> For Good Charm, the person carrying the amulet will have good luck until the Charm is over
> For Bad Charm, the person carrying the amulet will be able to cause bad luck to an specific person until the Charm is over
> For Demi Charm, the person carrying the amulet will experiment both effects of the Charm until it's over

For the Charm to make effect, the person must be in contact with the amulet so if they lose it they won't be able to use the ability, also, if another person takes the amulet or steals it they'll be able to use the ability themself

Heyo, I edited your article since you mentioned english is not your first language. I used to work with editing video game translations from Chinese to English :) Feel free to use the few corrections I made. Or not, that is fine too XD

Most commonly they ask for gifts, usually things that they like (food, toys, money, etc) or things with a great sentimental value. Sometimes instead of asking for things in return they put conditions on how to manage the luck they give, as they consider it to make things more fun and interesting

I must hoard them all - they are all precious babies ; 3 ;

But now for actual question:

How extensive is their knowledge of human / other creature culture and if they are familiar or unfamiliar with certain concepts (does their knowledge vary based on where they came from or do they naturally have a general knowledge - for example, would one of them know Japanese and the culture even if they've never been to Japan or heard much of it, or would they have to visit / learn / expierence the culture in order to keep it in memory - to which branches of too how good their memory is if they live 150-200 years)

Thanks ;v;

It depends on the background you have for the character, by logic if charmines have been living among humans for several years it's to be expected for them to have at least basic knowledge about them and their culture, depending on where the particular charmine has been living and how much they've been living there they might already know things such as folklore, traditions and even language, but just to point it out, they don't automatically gain knowledge about other species naturally, for that they need to spend time with them and that's why in each land there're species with the job of gathering information about the species that inhabit other lands, including earth, in the case of charmines, they -currently- don't belong to any land in particular so they're scattered all over the lands so charmines living in, for example Terralia, probably knows nothing about other lands if they've never been there, same happens in earth ovo

Ashley-Chan1 Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
AH, so it is a learning expirence for them - but how good is there memory if they live for about 150-200 years?

Do they retain the knowledge well, or does it have to be like us where we have to have some sort of interaction or 'reminder' to remember things?

For example: driving a car or riding a bike, would it be a memory like that that's always there but untapped until needed or used

Or is it like preparing a meal you don't have a receipe for - you know some of the ingredients but forget some of the others so you keep looking until you find the answer

Or just forgetting simple things like we do as humans everyday that aren't as important In the long run (long term vs short term memory)

Pyro-Zombie Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
honestly I think these kind of question should be decided by the owner, if you want your character to have good or bad memory that's on you since it depends on how you'll see it fit in your story, I'm totally okay with them having very good memory and able to retain a lot of informaton for long periods of time or I'm also okay with it having bad memory or needing reminders, that's something I don't think I should put limitations to ovo

That's fair I suppose, I just wasn't sure if there was a canon for them or not

Perhaps I'll make a jumbo list of questions for ya (answering questions can help develop characters unintentionally)
