Rixixi Daggerstabbed by magmatixiRixixi Primal Daggerstabbed by magmatixiRixixi Domestic Daggerstabbed by magmatixi

  • Must be a shade of red - bright red, blood red, pale red, or red-brown recommended. Can contain a more saturated color in the center and blend out to a desaturated color.
  • Daggerstabbed's color can be overridden by the Rixixi's blood color if applicable.
  • Edges should be fully blended out.
  • The marking should be similar to the chest marking of a bleeding-heart dove.
  • At minimum, Daggerstabbed should appear on the chest. The trail down the belly is optional.

Penumbra (nPnum/PnumPnum) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
A soft-edged band outlining a marking, while causing the actual marking to disappear. The outline can be any color, and may be two-toned. If no other marking exists on the Rixixi, Penumbra can create a soft-edged outline of any marking that can be hard-edged.
 
  • Penumbra presents as a band of color outlining any marking. The band may be any color, and may be two-toned. Penumbra should be soft- or blended-edged regardless of the original marking's edge hardness.
  • Markings modified by Penumbra are not visible other than their outline. Markings underneath them can be shown visibly, or stop at the outline as if the marking was filled in with the base coat.
  • If Penumbra is the only marking on the Rixixi (or if the only other markings modify the base coat without creating another marking, such as Gradient), then Penumbra can create the outline of any marking that can be hard-edged. It should also remain soft- or blended-edged in this case.
  • Recessive Penumbra can modify and outline one marking, while Dominant Penumbra can modify and outline multiple - as many as the designer desires.

Examples:

Aezaia 0361 by magmatixi
Penumbra modifying Unders

Laouto 0360 by magmatixi
Penumbra modifying Squared

Eyespot (nEye/EyeEye) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi

Creates spots with rings of color inside. Can be hollow.

  • Eyespot can be any color, and can be multicolored - they can have gradients, multicolored rings (multiple if desired), even both.
  • The marking can have a cutout if desired, displaying as hollow rings instead of solid spots.
  • It should be hard-edged.
  • Eyespot has no minimum, and must only appear visibly on the design. It has no maximum, and can appear anywhere on the Rixixi.

Examples:

Xerrin 0138 by magmatixi

 

Iridescence (nIri/IriIri) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi

A colorful sheen over the Ixi.

  • Iridescence can appear layered over the base coat and markings, and appears as an overlay of color over part of the body.
  • A way to achieve this look is to add an overlay layer blended out over part of the body. This should be fully blended out, and there should be an area where the actual base color shows through.
  • There can be a slight "shine" to Iridescence, but it should be subtle and not cover markings.

Examples:

Raiiax 0125 by magmatixi

 

Jack O'Lantern (nJol/JolJol) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
A limited-range bioluminescent marking that typically presents in an inorganic pattern. Kind of like a genetic, glowing tattoo.
 
  • Should be a bright color, with at least a subtle glow surrounding it.
  • The marking should be hard-edged, though the glow should be blended out.
  • At maximum, can appear on approximately 20% of the Rixixi, give or take (lenience is given in the case of large mutations on the body!), there is no minimum, but it must appear on the body visibly!
  • Jack O'Lantern is a very variable marking, effectively making a "tattoo" that glows. It should usually be inorganic (not a natural marking), but there's a lot of lenience. As such, the Examples section also contains four shapes that would be legal (though they don't have glow, they're just there as shape examples.) - this is far from an exhaustive list of legal examples, but we wanted to have some visuals available!

Droplets (nDro/DroDro) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
Modifies the edge of any one marking of the Rixixi to "drip" downwards, and can drip out of the marking's range if the marking has one. If no other marking exists on the Rixixi, Droplets can create a pseudo-Sable or Cloak marking on the back of the Rixixi with a Droplets edge. Dominant Droplets can modify multiple markings.
 
  • Droplets alters the edge "texture" of a marking. The droplets should match the modified marking's edge hardness and shape - that is, a hard-edged marking would have hard-edged droplets, and a soft-edged marking would have soft-edged droplets.
  • Two+ toned markings can have droplets on the edge of each marking color - see Dreamurr in the examples for a visual.
  • Droplets should match the original color of the modified marking, unless Droplets itself is modified by a color modifier.
  • If Droplets is the only marking on the Rixixi, then Droplets can create either a Sable or Cloak-style back marking, with Droplets affecting the edge - effectively "droplets going down the back".
  • Recessive Droplets can modify the edge of one marking, while Dominant Droplets can modify the edge of multiple - as many as the designer desires.

Examples:

Aezaezekaz 0266 by magmatixi
Affecting Squared.
Calavera 0267 by magmatixi
Affecting Hexagon.
Dreamurr 0397 by magmatixi
Affecting Eyespots - Two-toned.

Procyonid (nPr/PrPr) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
Streaks from eye to chin, rings around the tail, and "socks" on the arms and legs, all darker than base coat.

Range:

Rixixi Procyonid by magmatixiRixixi Primal Procyonid by magmatixiRixixi Domestic Procyonid by magmatixi

  • Procyonid has no limits on edge hardness.
  • Should be a darker shade of the base coat, or black.
  • Procyonid should visibly appear on each separate zone - limbs, tail, eyes, ears. Funerary Rixixi do not have the mandatory eye/ear range.
  • The tail must be striped.

Examples:

Ripple (nRip/RipRip) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
Presents as thin, wavering stripes down the Rixixi's sides like ripples on the surface of water. Lines often branch off and interlock along the 'path' down the Rixixi's side. Can be two-toned and any color.

Range:

Rixixi Ripple by magmatixiRixixi Primal Ripple by magmatixiRixixi Domestic Ripple by magmatixi

  • Ripple can be any color, and can be two-toned.
  • The marking should display as wavering and thin to give the rippling effect. Branching stripes are optional.
  • Ripple can be hard or soft-edged. It should not be heavily blended out or heavily textured.
  • While it does not have to literally meet the eye and tail, ripple should flow in an eye-to-tail direction.

Examples:

Bumburra 0206 by magmatixiTyphoon 0207 by magmatixi

 

Rosettes (nRs/RsRs) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi

Similar to a leopard, snow leopard, jaguar, clouded leopard, or other similar animal's spots.

  • Rosettes should mimic the rosette/spot pattern of the above big cats. It can also mimic non-rosette patterns from the same cats, such as the face and tail markings on Sezzeqh 0002. The design must contain spots, no matter what other markings are referenced. If mimicking non-rosettes, please make sure to link a reference. If mimicking the spots of a big cat not listed above, please link a reference.
  • The outer ring of rosettes must be darker than the base coat.
  • Rosettes can be hard-, textured-, or lightly soft-edged, but should not be fully blended out.
  • Rosettes can appear anywhere on the ixi, and commonly appears over a large portion of the body.

Examples:

Cowspot (nCow/CowCow) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
Large spots and patches clustered around the body. Can be lighter or darker than base coat.
 
  • Cowspot can be lighter or darker than the base coat. It can have a gradient, and the gradient can be made up of two fairly different colors, as long as those colors are still either lighter or darker than the base coat.
  • Cowspots can be single spots, large patches, many spots clustered together, or a combination of these. There can be spots smaller than the minimum size as long as they're clustering with a larger spot to make a proper-sized path. Likewise, patches can exceed the maximum size if they're clearly separate spots that meet at some points.
  • Cowspots can be solid, textured, or slightly soft-edged. They should not be blended out.
  • It has no maximum and can cover the full body if desired. At minimum, it should have one visible large patch.

Splash (nSpl/SplSpl) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi

A gradient of any base coat that blends into one marking. Dominant Splash can modify multiple markings.

  • Splash should blend fully into the other marking while still showing part of the original marking's color. Small markings like Snowflake or Ticking do not have to show the blend perfectly but should still show both the original marking color and the Splash color.
  • The gradient in Splash can be between any colors from either of the swatches from the chosen base coat.
  • If no other marking exists on the Rixixi, Splash can create a Pangare-like marking in a gradient of any base coat.

Examples:

Tabby (nTab/TabTab) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
Tabby cat-like stripes all over the Ixi's body. Can take various different shapes.
 
Domestic Rixixi can use Tabby as a free marking, but it won't show in their genotype, and passes from Domestics to other subspecies at a recessive rate even if it's not visible.
 
  • Tabby must be darker than the base coat. It may have a gradient, but it must be within a similar hue, not heavily two-toned.
  • It is typically hard- or textured-edged. It should not be blended out, but can be somewhat soft-edged.
  • It has no maximum and can cover the full body if desired. It has no minimum, but should be noticeable on the design.
  • Tabby Point and Spotted Tabby are okay to use!
  • If using a Spotted Tabby pattern, to look like a variant of tabby rather than other markings, make sure to include some solid unbroken stripes, and have your broken/spotted stripes lined up in noticeable stripe patterns!

Examples:

Thunderstruck (nTnd/TndTnd) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
White mark that appears in patches and branches out in "lightning"-like patterns.
 
  • Must be white or a very pale off-white.
  • Should be hard or textured-edged, must have a branching effect at the edges - subtle/small branching is allowed so long as it's there!
  • At maximum, can appear on approximately 40% of the Rixixi, give or take (lenience is given in the case of large mutations on the body!), there is no minimum, but it must appear on the body visibly!
  • Thunderstruck should display over most other markings.
  • There can be a subtle, soft-edged halo on the edge of the marking, either off-white or lighter than the base coat. This is optional and is a design choice you can make if it would make Thunderstruck blend into the design better!

Examples:

Old Dog 0124 by magmatixi

 

Windstorm (nWind/WindWind) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
Cloud shapes - realistic or stylized - appear on the body, in shades lighter and/or darker than the base coat. Can also optionally have one accent color - accent color can be any color at all.

  • Windstorm must be some type of cloud shape - whether realistic or stylized, and what type of cloud, is up to the designer, so long as it registers as a cloud.
  • The shape may be made up of shades lighter and/or darker than the base coat. There is no limit to how many shades may be included as long as they follow this rule.
  • It may also optionally include one accent color. This may be any color, but only one.
  • There is no edge hardness restriction for Windstorm so long as the overall shape can be easily read.

Examples:

Ruun 0316 by magmatixi

 

Blaze (nBlz/BlzBlz) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
Blaze can be any color and covers half of the body, traveling from the face to the midpoint of the body, or from the tailtip to the midpoint of the body. Can be two-toned.

  • Blaze can be any color, and may display up to two colors within the marking, which may optionally be blended together. Blaze may have patterns within itself, as long as it does not appear to be modified by another marking, such as Painted or Lunar.
  • Blaze has no restriction on edge hardness. It can have cutouts in the marking.
  • Blaze should cover at least 25% of the Rixixi. If originating at the face, it must cover the full face. If originating at the tail, it must cover the full tailtip.
  • Blaze must stop at the middle of the Rixixi, giving it a maximum of 50%.
  • Blaze can resemble Gradient without issue.

Examples:

Blur (nBlr/BlrBlr) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
Blur modifies a hard-edged marking on the Rixixi, causing it to be soft-edged.

  • Blur alters any hard-edged marking on the Rixixi to be soft-edged. Blurred markings can go very slightly out of range due to being blended out of the range.
  • If Blur is the only marking on the Rixixi (or if the only other markings are soft-edged), then Blur will not visibly appear on the design.
  • Recessive Blur can modify the edge of one marking, while Dominant Blur can modify the edge of multiple - as many as the designer desires.

Examples:

Blur used on Skunk, which also has Lunar effecting it.

 

Xanadu (nXan/XanXan) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
A stripe along the back. Can be any color.

Range:

   
  • Xanadu is a marking similar to the stripe on an orca's back. It can continue down the tail, and can optionally have various swirls, curves, and/or sharp edges at the tips.
  • Xanadu may be any color, and may display up to two colors within the marking, which may be blended together.
  • The edge of Xanadu should be soft.

Examples:

Waterlight (nWat/WatWat) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
A marking like light shimmering through water. Can be line-like ripples or large blobs of light.

Range:

Rixixi Sable by magmatixiRixixi Primal Sable by magmatixiRixixi Domestic Sable by magmatixi

  • Must be lighter than the base coat.
  • Should be soft-edged.
  • Waterlight can present as either large blobs of light (The Lanternlighter shows this presentation) or lines representing ripples in water - sort of like an outline of the former version. Both should be soft-edged and lighter than base.

Examples:

Erosion (nEr/ErEr) (Uncommon)

Category: Rixixi
Species: Rixixi
Erosion modifies a marking on the Rixixi, causing it to have a mottled texture to the edge

  • Erosion alters any single marking on the Rixixi, causing the texture of the marking to be mottled and speckled. Speckles should be tiny, like the snowflake marking. Eroded markings can go very slightly out of range due to being textured out of the range.
  • If Erosion is the only marking on the Rixixi, then Erosion will not visibly appear on the design. Alternately, it can be used on free marks.
  • Recessive Erosion can modify the edge of one marking, while Dominant Erosion can modify the edge of multiple - as many as the designer desires.

Examples:

Erosion used on Pangare
