WHAT ARE SHROOMKIN?
Shroomkin are raccoon like forest dwellers that share a life-long bond with a fungi.
Shroomkin tend to stand around 1’ (30.4cm) at the shoulder. They have sharp, retractable claws used for climbing and delicate tasks, but only begrudgingly used for digging. Their thumbs are opposable. They are mammalian, covered in fur and bearing live young in litters of 1-3, once a year or less as they desire. Their lifespan is anywhere from 20-50 years, 50 being considered rare and highly respected if achieved (they count their age in seasons, however, so 50 years would be considered 200 seasons).
When a Shroomkin is born they are a very drab shade of grey brown. Once they are weaned, they set out on a solitary right of passage to find their first mushroom. After eating the mushroom the Shroomkin return home to the safety of their clan and sleep for several days. When they wake up, the Shroomkin sees that the mushroom has become a part of them as a symbiotic relationship is formed. Over the next week or two, they grow their adult pelt and finally, the fruiting body of the mushroom can be seen on their forehead or cheeks and on rare occasions their thighs.
