Thank you for the compliment and also the concern. And yes, I do mean Anthropomorphic animals. There are more reasons for Humanity to morph that way in the reality of my creative hobby: 1: Animals include many creative options, which, blended with the Human body, could result in so many unique designs. For example, Humans barely get more than a single color for their skin, and another for their hair. Animals, and subsequently any humans containing the DNA can, however, have markings. If Real Life humans gained the ability to steal some genes from the animals around them in any manner (for example, and one of the ideas which I wish to implement: a virus which would extract DNA from any infected animals it catches in it's grasp and would insert it's library of genes into any infected, and doomed to morph human) It would be interesting to see how it would be Think about #1 in this way too: using animal features on a human body would also open a way for elements to be used. For example: Po-Terrans would have the features of Fennec Foxes, Vultures, Lions, Red Kangaroo, and other desert/savanna animals. Le-Terrans would morph with the features of Jungle dwelling animals and birds, like Lemurs, South American Bats, Parrots, etc. Ko-Terrans can become what enjoys the cold and snow, ice, etc. Like a snow leopard, a polar bear, a penguin, or a Reindeer, even a Seal, or a Sea Lion. Ga-Terrans: There are quite a few options to consider, like otters, dolphins, and again, some birds that like swimming X3. Onu-Terrans Need animals that dig. Some rodents, Moles, You know the deal. Ta-Terrans are the hard part. They have to be satisfied with animals that can live in moderate areas, like badgers, wolves, deers (btw, there needs to be a deer rahi), lynxes, skunks, weasels, so Yea, since I don't know animals that exist(ed) in real life that lives well in a barren, volcanic, lava-flowish area safely with no need for plants or stuff, And the more tropical mammals, birds, and even Reptiles are taken by other elements, I think the story of the roman city that was burried under lava gave the right idea to give Ta-Wahi the most familiar scenery with a fitting fauna -and anthros- to begin with. After all, Ta-Koro was like a medieval European castle anyways. So, Humans having an inherent elemental potential gives Anthrmorphism some cool aesthetic options. 2: Another reason I decided for anthromorphism to be used... well, I grew up being a fan of anthros in the first place. I watched cartoons like "Blinky Bill", "Willy Fogg", "Franklin", "Arthur", "Saban's Adventures of Oliver Twist", "Jim Henson's DogCity", and many others I might have forgotten. One of them in particular, Willy Fogg, treated it's anthros in a way they referred to each other as human. (At least so it was in the Hungarian dub). They also were probably the only ones treated as purely human in terms of behavior. The dogs didn't drive cars shaped after a bone or a firefighting plug thing -dunno how English calls those red firefighting things-, tho there weren't much vehicles there. But what there were, were modeled after actual ones instead of trying to theme them because dogs, cats, and whatever. The cast of Characters, including background ones, happened to be rich and diverse. From lion to hamster, from wolf to deer, many animal species were involved in the Willy Fogg story, and again, without forcing symbolism usually associated with the animals. I grew up drawing "animal people" beginning with "Horsemen" and "Dogmen". this developed into this eventually.
