Aysse Species Sheet by Enaxn Aysse Species Sheet 2.0 by Enaxn

General Info
The Aysse are a species of large cat-looking creatures. All have horns, most have wings, and all have excess fluff in various key areas. Aysse exist to transfer various forms of energy from places where it flows in excess to places where it is more absent. Because of this, the Aysse must exist on a planet in order for it to survive. Without the transfer of energy, the energy would pool irregularly and the planet would eventually die. Aysse range in size from a large dog to a small truck. There are several subspecies, each tasked with transferring a specific type of energy within their bodies.

Sexual Dimorphism
Wing-type is determined by the number of copes of the x-chromosome. One wing-type chromosome results in the membrane phenotype, while two results in the feathered wing phenotype. Therefore most females have feathered wings and most males have membrane wings (though the Fire subspecies can pose as an exception). Males tend to be larger, and their longer fur can be longer and more ornamental

Earth Subspecies
Tasked with transferring the seismic energy created within the earth itself. This is the biggest subspecies, ranging from the size of a large horse to a small pick-up truck. They have shorter fur, strong builds, and are easy-going. They tend to live near seismically active areas, such as fault lines.

Water/Ice Subspecies
The water subspecies transfers energy generated by falling water, waves, glaciers, etc. The Ice members of the water subspecies are more comfortable living in colder areas and this tend to transfer the energy created by frozen water, but they are just as able to utilize liquid water as well. The Water Subspecies is the 2nd largest, with the size range of a horse. The females are the size of an average warmblood, and the males are larger than the largest coldbloods. The waters have fur of varying lengths; the ice subspecies is very furry, while the warmer-themed waters have shorter fur. Dorsal fur length varies. Some Waters can be very temperamental and proud.

Fire subspecies
The furriest and most decorated subspecies. They transfer energy from fires, lava pools, volcanoes, etc. They typically have lavish fur and love to wear lots of jewelery and bands and shinies. This subspecies sports a x-chromosome genetic mutation that can give females membrane wings, and males can have no wings at all. They range in size from a small pony to a regular-sized horse. This subspecies is very temperamental and vain. Tend to live near volcanoes.

Air Subspecies
Transfer wind energy. They are lean-bodied and have large wings. They are pony-sized and appreciate decoration and shinies, but not to the extent of the Fires. They prefer to keep to themselves, but tend to be amiable when they interact with others. They live up in the mountains.

Electricity/Lightning subspecies
Transfer energy generated by lightning, static electricity, etc. The smallest of the subspecies. They range in size from a large dog to a small pony. Many sport the polydactyly phenotype, resulting in several extra toes and wing phlanges. Most also have sabre-styled canine teeth. They are very sharp-witted and sneaky, but generally easy to get along with. They live at the bases of mountains, in the mountains, at the edges of the forests or deserts or bodies of water; anywhere where the weather currents are consistently unstable.

Do NOT make adoptables, steal the species, etc. You all know the drill <__<

How long do aysse live? I bet celestial live as long as stars, but what about corporeal? Sorry, I ask a lot of questions

Celestial Aysse more or less live forever since they're really just a bunch of sentient energy that give themselves bodies, but killing the body wouldn't kill them permanently, they'd just re-form it after a time.  You'd need to kill the body and then somehow dissipate the energy once its released. 

Corporeal Aysse are totally bound by their bodies, though.  I always pictured them living maybe 100-200 years??? Maybe a little longer?? Like longer than normal animals but not really that long in the grand scheme of thing.

AND NO I LOVE YOUR QUESTIONS THANK YOU!!!! I'm planning on re-doing the sheet so this is all good stuff to think about!! Thank you!!!

You know what...
It's been like two years since I've learned about aysse and fallen in love with them and I still don't have the slightest idea how to pronounce it :"D 
Is it like  "ice" but with "e" as in "elephant" at the beginning?

Close!!!! It rhymes with Space but without the 'sp'. 

They were originally designed to be personifications of proteins, which always end with -ase, so I just changed the letters but kept the sound the same!
