Finally sat myself down to draw a full body image of the Noxia to detail the standard appearance of these creatures. As mentioned, they take on the appearance of giant Oriental/Eastern Dragons. In most cases all Noxia have a set of key features that they carry when the manifest into a ‘solid’ form as shown here.
All Noxia have a mane or sorts that generally takes up the back of the neck and flows to the sides, the mane is long and flowing and feels very silky to the touch. In some cases the Noxia’s man can travel down the entire length of their backs and end in a mass of fluff at the end of the tail. This is rare but it is not that rare.
All Noxia are ‘born’ with the skull like portion at the front of the jaw, this is not an injury but it’s a general design for the species itself. The revealed bone allows for these guys to grab and hold onto their prey, the fangs that are displayed on the bone itself are meant for gripping while the teeth that are located in the fleshed portion of their mouths are designed for ripping, tearing and slicing.
The general feel for the Noxia’s body is almost as though you are touching a Catfish’s body, they have a very smooth almost silky feeling skin that coats their bodies when they are solid like this. Their bodies are extremely pliable and you can squish, push and press against them like they were giant water balloons. The body itself is basically a solid shell (exoskeleton if you would) that keeps the tar like substance that they are truly made of under control. When you press against their bodies the substance forms and melds to the shape of the thing that is pressing against it.
These guys are MASSIVE in general but in most cases the Noxia condense themselves down into a smaller and more manageable size. When they condense themselves down think of it as though they are sucking all the air out of their bodies (much like those vacuum sealed bags that you see advertised around) which in turn shrinks them down. The more air that is sucked out of the body, the smaller they become. In most cases a Noxia will condense themselves down to a reasonable size that still gives them the intimidating factor but they are small enough to interact with things.
Noxia have a wide array of personalities, they range from down right aggressive and cruel (Ashendale) to more placid and passive (Cadimus and Aliah). They also have a wide range of ages within the dungeons that they are sealed away in, offspring are being ‘born’ everyday within these dungeons due to Ashendale and Ailith’s manners so there is a true never ending supply of the things.
Anyway… enjoy oxo this file is HUGE! Oh my god @_@
