Legendary trait (Legendary)

Traits that go far beyond the usual restrictions of normal leeches. These often have spectacular definitions and titles setting them apart from their common counterparts.

Legendary traits differ from unlisted in that they form as highly specialized adaptations as the leech ages, rather than a defect.

Unlisted trait (Unlisted)

Occasionally a leech hatches with a defect that doesn't come under any trait classifications.

While unique, these are often detrimental and indicate some other genetic defect going on behind the scenes, resulting in poor health, behaviour, and lifespan. Most breeders will actively reject a leech that hatches with an unlisted trait, and those who actively seek them out to own are often viewed with scorn as people who do not care for the creatures' wellbeing, only their looks.

Devil Horns

Devil Horns (Normal)

Category: Horns

A pair of short curved horns, meant for self defense but not much else.

Devil horns are usually accompanied by other spiked traits.

Cinnabun horns

Cinnabun horns (Normal)

Category: Horns

Very tightly coiled horns that curl forwards on the head.

They are similar to ram horns, but leeches that sport cinnabun horns tend to be more on the docile side.

Crown horns

Crown horns (Normal)

Category: Horns

A simple spiked ridge of horns that grow as an extension of the jaw, on either side of the face.

The crown is a regal looking trait, and the leeches that sport them tend to act the part.

Note: This is its own horn trait, and therefore more horns cannot be added onto the leech without the many horns Myth trait. 

Orb horns

Orb horns (Normal)

Category: Horns

Solid and spherical horns.

The orb horns are a trait developed by pet leech breeders specifically to be harmless. In some circles it's become popular to try and develop mimicry patterning on these horns, such as giving the appearance of large eyes. 

Tri horns

Tri horns (Normal)

Category: Horns

A genetic mishap that causes a smaller third horn to grow along the center of the head. 

They can exist as their own short set of three horns, or as an addition to any set of duo head horns, such as impaler. On some occasions, the third horn can grow into another singular horn type, like uni. 

Note: No matter the combination, the listed trait will be Tri horns. Add the horn types in the description if applicable! 

Gateway horns

Gateway horns (Normal)

Category: Horns

 An incomplete arc ending in a sharp upwards point.

This trait is most common in fancy mount class leeches; a common way to accessorize these horns is to put some kind of item between them, for example a golden plate.

Antler horns

Antler horns (Normal)

Category: Horns

A pair of horns that branches out into several points. The horns can resemble any existing antler type.

These leeches make proficient hunters, but thankfully they aren't usually aggressive unless hungry. 

Slick horns

Slick horns (Normal)

Category: Horns

Similar in shape to Toro, they curve backwards which instead makes them relatively harmless.

Slick is another popular pick for mount class horns, or on those bred to look especially stylish.

Ram horns

Most common on mount class leeches, riders tie reins to these horns to steer.

Many horns

Many horns (Common Myth)

Rhino horn

Rhino horn (Normal)

Category: Horns

A single thick horn originating from the leech's snout. It's mostly used for mimicry but can carry a powerful punch.

Long, twisted horns that are used for mimicry and camouflage.

These horns might have been used to attract mates... But it was just a passing trend.
