Appearance:

Nippy is an extraordinary tomcat. His design is inspired by the cat nip plant and he is based on a tabby cat. He has the average body type of a tomcat and his fur is quite fluffy and soft. His main fur colour is a light mint green with dark mint green stripes. His chest, belly, paws, hair and ear tips are also coloured in the same dark mint green colour. His big fluffy tail has a leaf-like striped pattern. On both sides of his hip he has marks that resemble the blossom of a typical purple cat nip flower, same goes for the inside of his ears which are light purple with distinct dark purple markings. These markings look like the inside of the cat nip blossom. His ears are shaped  like single cat nip leaves. He has a cute pink nose, shining purple eyes and no whiskers. His paw pads (beans) have the same light purple shade as the markings on both sides of his hip and also of the inside of his ears  

 

Character Traits:

  • Friendly

  • Charming

  • Loyal

  • Hyper

  • A bit crazy

  • Carefree

  • Very playful

  • Hasty

  • Wild

  • Overexcited

 

Abilities:

  • Nippy kind of a combination of the cat nip plant and a cat. This means that he is able to gain energy by either eating or photosynthesis. His whole body smells like cat nip which can affect other creatures (especially cats) around him in many different ways. He can make them feel very hyperactive and playful, or the other way around like very calm and relaxed, this depends strongly on the effect needed by those affected. Generally, his body always smells very pleasant to those around him

  • He has the ability of speech and he speaks and understands many different human languages of our world. Of course he is able to interact with his fellow species and other animals and creatures. He can even translate to a certain extent

  • He is in great physical shape. He can run very fast, jump pretty high and far and he is a fantastic climber

  • He is able to see in the dark and, unlike other cats, he can see almost all existing colours

  • He is a very loyal and kind-hearted companion which always wants ot cheer up anybody

 

Weaknesses:

  • He sometimes gets way too hyper and overexcited which can disturb others

  • He cannot "turn off" his cat nip scent which can be a problem in certain situations like, when he needs to hide for example

  • The effect of his scent won't hold forever, it wears off eventually after a few hours. The body of the creature involved seems to become kind of accustomed to it. The effect of the scent can only get its full potential back when said creature separates itself spatially for a few days from Nippy. This can also be a good thing, like when said creature doesn't want to be affected by this special scent anymore

  • He'll always need enough water and sunlight supply. If he doesn't get enough of either of them his fur will slowly turn brown and he will get seriously sick. Extreme heat and cold can quickly become problematic for him as well. He will also stop smelling like cat nip and rather smell like a wilted plant

  • Just as Sylvi, whenever he would lose his magical powers for whatever reason, he will turn into an ordinary orange tabby cat with green eyes, normal-shaped ears and the markings on his ears will disappear entirely and the ones on his hip will be replaced with an unremarkable stripe-like pattern. This so called "Prior Form" is not the same form as his "wilted" form

  • He gets bored pretty quickly and easily so, he always needs some kind of activity or occupation otherwise, he will get dissatisfied

Further Information:

  • He has an entirely vegetarian diet, even though he is a cat. His favourite foods are vegetables, fruits and nuts. He is not required to eat though, he can also gain his entire energy by photosynthesis alone

  • He was born in the Land of Eternal Dusk a mystical land which is full of magic and fairy-like creatures. As the name implies, the land is in a state of eternal dusk. It is a very beautiful and peaceful place

  • He and every here presented Land of Eternal Dusk resident are good friends. But he considers Sylvi as a very good friend, he even calls himself her loyal companion or right hand. They always spend a very joyful and great time together

  • He loves his girlfriend Cosmia to bits and they both love being hyper or doing playful shenanigans together

  • Due to spending a lot of time together, Sylvi is rarely or either hardly affected by his cat nip smell. It does not have any effect on his girlfriend Cosmia, Felaya, Sylvipardis and Clementia, since all of them are special mystical creatures which rarely get influenced by such powers
