An example of a male Jolvin, owned by @luffy
Jolvin are very thick, sturdy and large canine-like creatures. On average, adults are 4’ tall at the withers, but can grow to be 6’ tall. They have a lackluster sense of smell and bear a canid-like nose, and dauntingly large teeth that are made enforceable by their strong, muscular jaws.
Their eyesight leaves room for improvement, but their hearing makes up for it; they sport large ears that are excellent at picking up even the faintest sound, making it hard for prey to sneak around. The vibrations caused by other creatures moving is picked up by their paws, which are surprisingly sensitive for how averagely sized they are. These paws are home to very large retractable claws that they used for general traction purposes and for climbing trees.
When climbing, their balance is maintained with their thick tails, which are usually a bit longer than their bodies. Strong legs and heightened agility and stamina allows them to travel at speeds up to 40 MPH.
Thick, dense fur protects the Jolvin from the cold and other weather including hailstorms and snowstorms. They have manes that start on the forehead, drape over their ears, and run down their backs, meshing into their tail’s fur. Running along the back of their front legs and connecting to the middle of their sides is long fur similar to their mane. This also occurs on their back legs, melding into their rear fluff.
Sporting many vibrant, cool colors, they tend to blend in with most of Ourani’s cold-climate flora. Warm colors are nonexistent in this species. This means that they are only found with purple, blue, and green coats. Dull colors are common, but appear very sparingly throughout the animal’s coat, usually in areas such as the stomach, legs, or parts of the face.
Their colors are not limited to bright ones, but even their darker colors are vibrant enough to be very noticeable. There are very many different coat variations, and while Jolvin may be seen with any type of marking, it is rare to find them without dapples or other kinds of spots.
The males appear more vibrant than the females, and the females lack the whiskers that the males have.
