Verdan is a comely androgynous snail and dragon hybrid, which also shares some canine and feline features, like the paws, ears and fur. They carry a cute dark brown, right-twisted snail shell on their back into which they can retreat thanks to their magical powers. They also have a quite large light brown tail which sticks out right under their shell and which is also spiralled on its tip, like their snail shell. Their belly and outside of ears share the same light brown colouring. Verdan's fur is pretty short and very shiny. However, it is not covered in slime, as one might initially assume. While they do produce slime, it is immediately magically absorbed by their fur, resulting in one of the shiniest coats imaginable. Therefore, the fur is extremely soft, even as smooth as silk. The fur is adorned with several different colours and gradients. The main fur colour is a lovely moss green, which gradually lightens from top to bottom on the head, arms, and legs until it eventually transitions into a yellowish light green. The snout, eyebrows, the lower part of the cheeks, forearms, ankles, and paws are almost entirely covered in this light hue. Additionally, they have a pattern around their eyes in the same colour, which is shaped like a heart. It's worth noting that the snout, the eye pattern, and the paw tips are delicately covered with a reddish tint. Pretty light green plant- or leaf-like patterns are distributed across their entire body, especially on the thighs. Other special features are the small dark green leaves that grow out of their fur at several places, like on top of the head or hips for instance. Verdan also has cute snail-like antennas on their head, which gradually transition from a dark moss green at the bottom to a lighter version of this colour as they go upwards. The inside of their ears, their paw pads (beans) and nostrils are reddish-orange. They have small pointed fangs that protrude slightly. Verdan has pretty big light purple eyes with a brown iris and black pupil each. They can often be seen wearing an orange and red striped collar with a dark green leaf pendant. It is meant to symbolize their connection to plants and the flora

Character Traits:

  • Gentle

  • Thoughtful

  • Cuddly

  • Introvert

  • Composed

  • A bit slow

  • Bashful

  • Sentimental

  • Shy

  • A bit anxious



  • Verdan can retreat into their snail shell at any time. There, they are protected by a magical force field from almost all external influences, such as fire or electricity. Biologically speaking, they wouldn't be able to retract into this small shell since they have bones and a spine, but a special magical power enables them to do so nevertheless

  • They can make or help all sorts of plants grow, like flowers, bushes or trees for instance. Unlike many other creatures, this requires very little energy for them, and they can make numerous plants grow and/or heal them at once. The plants they create are especially colourful and beautiful and they are immediately distinguishable from other plants

  • They often work together with Felipix by growing plants, and she takes care of them and pollinates them

  • Like Nippy, Verdan also possesses chloroplasts, which allow them to perform photosynthesis, which means that they are able to gain energy by either eating or photosynthesis

  • Due to their snail-like characteristics, they always need to ensure that their body, fur, and skin are adequately hydrated. Dehydration makes them feel uncomfortable quickly, and they may even become ill or temporarily losing their powers

  • They are an excellent swimmer and diver and loves spending time in the water

  • They are very soft and cuddly and a hug from them can feel like holding a secure and soft silk pillow which warms up almost any other creature's heart

  • They have the ability of speech and they speak and understand many different human languages of our world. Of course they are able to interact with their fellow species and other animals and creatures. They are even able to communicate with all sorts of plants. They do this through crackling sounds, scents, tastes, and electrical signals for instance

  • They are able to see in the dark and, unlike other snails and dragons, they can see almost all existing colours



  • Verdan is a very caring and kind-hearted creature, especially towards plants. The fact that they are not able to help all flowers, trees, bushes etc. makes them often feel bad and down. They wish they could help every plant thrive in full bloom

  • They'll always need enough water and sunlight supply. If they don't get enough of either of them the leaves on their body and fur will slowly turn brown and they will get seriously sick. They should not be exposed to the sun and water for too long; a healthy balance between sunlight and water intake is therefore crucial. Also, extreme heat and cold can quickly become problematic for them as well

  • Due to being partly a mythological creature to begin with, Verdan does not have a "Prior Form" like some others do. But like Nippy, they have a kind of "wilted form", this form occurs if they dry out too much or are exposed to too much water for too long

  • They are not the fastest creature and take a bit longer for a bunch of activities. This is something that can sometimes weigh on them, especially when others become impatient or unkind because of it. They essentially don't want to be a burden to anyone, and that can make them quite insecure and anxious. However, this only applies to strangers or randomly encountered beings; all their friends understand and treat them with respect and love

  • They are a rather shy creature and need some time to warm up to newly acquainted beings. They also have a mild form of social anxiety and feel uncomfortable in certain situations, such as crowded places or certain types of conversations. If such a scenario arises, they often try to retreat into their snail shell as an escape, and once inside they will not come out so quickly again



  • The flora and making and helping plants grow and thrive

  • Colourful and pretty flowers and leaves

  • Having all sorts of plants as friends

  • Their sweet and understanding friends

  • Cuddling and closeness

  • Water and swimming

  • Peace and quiet and places and situations they consider safe

  • Changeable weather, they love sunny and rainy weather. They do not like snow and strong heat though



  • Not being able to help and/or heal suffering plants

  • Hurt, withered, sick and other suffering plants

  • All kind of violence especially towards plants and their loved ones

  • Places, situations etc. which make them feel anxious and stressed, like crowded places or when someone is stressing them out for example

  • Loneliness and lack of bodily contact

  • Too much noise and commotion

  • Faded and dull things and places with no flora whatsoever

  • Extreme heat and cold, like drought, ice and snow


Further Information:

  • They have an entirely vegetarian diet, even though they are half a dragon and have some canine and feline features. Their favourite foods are fruits and nuts which have been willingly given by plants. They are not required to eat though, they can also gain their entire energy by photosynthesis alone

  • Biologically, they are androgynous and they identify as bigender. In addition they are pansexual, for finding love, gender is not important at all to them

  • They were born in the Land of Eternal Dawn. This place is very similar to the Land of Eternal Dusk, but the land is in a state of eternal dawn. Thus the sky, the landscape, the plants etc. look different. In general, the colours of the Land of Eternal Dawn are more pastel-like, while the ones of the Land of Eternal Dusk are more intensive and vibrant. When it's about their population currently, it is difficult to tell where the individual inhabitants come from, since both lands are strongly connected and networked with each other. This particular alliance is responsible for the fact that their creatures bear a close resemblance to each other. It is therefore as good as impossible to tell which being was born in the Land of Eternal Dusk or Dawn. Currently, Verdan lives in the Land of Eternal Dusk, since there, they can find more plants to take care of. But they often return to their home land, especially during summer time to take advantage of the many fantastic swimming opportunities there

  • In every land you can find the following rule: Every strongly marked anthropomorphic creature is actually a human being from either a different dimension and/or time, that's why these creatures are more human-like than other beings

  • They and every here presented Land of Eternal Dusk resident are good friends. They get very well along with Felipix, since both often work together to help the flora thrive by combining their magical powers
