Species: Priing

This is not a complete write-up.

Bipeds. They have a very long, narrow, pointed snout with long, narrow, sharp snake-like fangs that are 'folded' back in the mouth so unless they open their mouth and the fangs extend, they're invisible. They have a forked tongue, too. Their eyes are almond-shaped and dark, simply one dark color, without pupil, iris, or whites. They have a crest which begins just as their skull slopes downwards, made of ridges which can be raised or flattened to indicate moods. Their neck is semi-long and thin, with the muscles and most of all tendons standing out sharply. The crest continues down it, and it's arched to shove their head forward. They have narrow shoulders, if you could get them to hold their long, gaunt arms at their sides for a profile, but they rarely stand like that. Their arms are exceedingly long, with taut and wiry muscles, again with tendons and muscles standing out sharply. They have four-fingered hands, very elongated and narrow fingers, with long, narrow, curving eagle-like claws on their fingertips. Their spines are arched as well, hunching them over slightly. They have narrow chests with the ribs standing out sharply, and after the short ribcage is a rather long, narrow, ovalish waist of great flexibility. Below that, they have long, lean legs, very long (as are their arms) in proportion to their body-size; they walk digitigrade. As with their entire body, the tendons and muscles tend to stand out sharply. They hold their legs reasonably bent, with their thigh nearly horizontal, instead of vertical as humans stand. They have four toes, each long, gnarled, and ending in a viciously long, narrow, eagle-like claw. They do have a tail, probably about seven or eight feet long, which is slender and ends in a whip-like tip. The tail is prehensile and very mobile, often displaying their moods. That afore-mentioned crest continues all the way down their spine and halfway down their tail, with the ridges on the spine reaching two feet in height. They also have wing-like fins, positioned parallel to the spine, right behind the shoulders; these fins are shaped somewhat like a lionfish tail, vanes extending beyond the fin membrane. The fins extend from the start of the crest to their rumps, with the vanes being up to five feet in length total; they're often used to display emotions and enhance communication.
