Gills are respiratory organs that are located on the neck or rib area and allow the Xero to breathe underwater. A Xero with this trait has both a set of gills and a set of lungs and can “turn off” function for one or the other depending on their body state.
Gill-having Xeros who spend a lot of time outside of the water are recommended to find ways to rehydrate often to avoid drying out the area.
How To Use This Trait
This trait can only be placed on the Neck or Rib area of a Xero.
The gills can be "scalloped" or flat facing on the Xero.
Gills must have the same flesh color as the Xero. If the gills are a different color it requires the use of the split trait.
The Gills can be placed BOTH on the Neck and the Ribs.
Place the gills anywhere else but the neck or ribs.
Use gill-like markings without the use of the trait.
If the gills are drawn primarily closed in ML art, please inform us so we can categorize the trait correctly.
This trait can only be added by using a Glitch Vial on a Xero that has the "Glitched" status.
