Alternative species


Lucas, the wanderer
If you/your main sona had to be a different species, what would it be? Basically, what's your runner-up?

So I'm a grey wolf, but I considered being a goat! because Undertale I just think they're neat and funny. Is it a coincidence that I'm a Capricorn? Personally not too sure about that stuff myself, but I just think it's a funny coincidence. Even if it's just a one-off thing, I'd like to see myself as a goat someday. ^^

But enough about me, feel free to share and discuss yourselves here as well. =)


Antelope-Addicted Hyena
I'm a striped yeen primarily, and it really fits me, I think, personality and all. But I do have a secondary personal character, a nyala antelope (and I'm a capricorn too!).

This was mainly an aesthetic choice, those critters are really beautiful. Also I came to like to use this character in the context of my marriage, which is very gentle and "non-predatory" relationship, better symbolized by a pair of placid herbivores.

Also if I was into fursuits, this would be something to go for, the looks of these antelopes are quite impressive.


I'll poke your butt.
Probably a deer. I think they're beautiful.
Mine is a bat/cat hybrid though. Lol


River otter maybe. They're all so cute!

Actually have a character design in mind already. Never envisioned him as my sona but could work for that I guess. Dark brown fur with a lighter belly, blond hair and pretty emerald eyes, cute and happy personality. Adorable!

My runner up, and secondary fursona I've used in a few RPs is a Fossa...who goes by the name, of Fossa.

Firuthi Dragovic

I would most likely pick a tiger, honestly. Specifically one of those white tigers you generally see in zoos.

.....which I realize may require extra background work to address all their health defects of course.


vaporeon with Axolotl gill array as neck fin
I thought of making a giant otter/Axolotl character as a fan<stuff> free version


Defender of the Sacred Nuggs
Well I got 2 sonas, one a tiger shark and the other a unique reptilian.

If I were to switch things up I might go with an iguana or raptor. Got dozens of other characters thought up but none of them I would see as my sona


The Lurking Hooman
Well if I were to ever give up the human sona I suppose I'd go for a bear. Think it would best fit my build. Though with my height? I'd be more like a teddy bear.

If I wasn't a shapeshifting chimera, I'd either be an orca, a snow-clouded leopard, a serval-ocelot-caracal, or an eastern dragon.


*old vine reference here*
I did have an OC who was a canine, but and I honestly really like the idea of a cheetah. I might still make a cheetah oc at some point.
