Frequently asked questions
Want quick answers to some of our most-received questions? Here on the FAQ page we've filled out some information to help you out if you've got some common questions.
How do I get an Ailidae?
Ailidae are most frequently sold on an individual basis, as well as included in mass-sales hosted by Pigeon or Chim. You can follow either on DeviantART to keep see when Ailidae are posted, or follow the DA Group for other updates. Pigeon also frequently gives members of their Patreon first-dibs or early-access to their Ailidae sales.
Can I make an Ailidae?
No. Ailidae are only allowed to be created by the owners of the species at this time, Chim and Pigeon. If you see anyone creating Ailidae Dogs, please report to either of them immediately, as they are the only ones authorized to do so.
Can pre-existing designs be revamped into Ailidae?
Pre-existing designs or characters you already own, of any species, cannot be revamped or turned into Ailidae Dogs.
Can I breed my Ailidae?
Breeding Ailidae is not permitted under any circumstances. This applies to all past, present, and future Ailidae. Breeding is defined by using a current Ailidae Dog character design to mix with any other character design to create offspring from said designs. "Story-based breeding" is allowed, in the form of "x pre-existing character is the mother of x pre-existing character". New Ailidae "pups" cannot be created.
How can i get a Custom Ailidae?
At this time, Chim only offers customs via personal selection and Pigeon only offers customs to select members of their Patreon. This may change in the future, but for now these are the only available options for ordering a custom Ailidae.
CAN I ALTER MY AILIDAE'S DESIGN?
You're more than welcome to make edits so that your new Ailidae feels perfect for you. However, all edits must be approved by Pigeon or Chim in order to make sure they still meet the following criteria:
They're still within the limitations of their class;
They're still recognizable as the same design;
They still fit within the species standards.
Can I sell my Ailidae?
Selling or rehoming of Ailidae Dogs is allowed, but requires permission beforehand from Pigeon or Chim (whichever is the original creator) beforehand. This also applies to trading or gifting Ailidae. Once you've transferred your Ailidae, let Pigeon know or fill out this transfer form so the masterlist can be properly updated.
What can my ailidae's magic do?
Ailidae magic is largely based on the desires of the owner. We don't have any intention of controlling what your characters' magic can or cannot do, so you have the freedom to use their magic in whatever way you like. The only limitation is, if they exist in the canon Ailidae universe, Ailidae cannot be more powerful than Rapture or Doom in any way, shape, or form.
Do Ailidae shed their antlers seasonally?
Ailidae often shed their antlers with the changing of the season. This is not always the case, as some gene strands grew out of the shedding phase. Whether or not your Ailidae sheds their antlers is up to you!
