Closed Species, Auracorn Info and Refsheet by Crow-Faced Closed Species, Auracorn Info and Refsheet by Crow-Faced
This is a CLOSED species, please do not make your own

Auracorns are mystical equine humanoids possessing magical energy 'horns' that project from gems on their foreheads. Along with these gems and horns, they are capable of other great magical abilities as well, including elemental magic. They mainly live in 'herds' in forests, however they are highly adaptable and have been known to even live alongside other species such as humans. They are omnivorous, however they mainly prefer plants, however the occasional carnivorous Auracorn isn't unheard of.

The defining part of the species is of course their horns, which tend to match or be close to the colors of their eyes and gems, and are something of a reflection of the Auracorn's personality. Horns tend to manifest when Auracorns grow out of their toddler stage, and serves various uses depending on the Auracorn who wields it. No two horns are really exactly alike, and an Auracorn can never 'lose' their horn permanently, except for in the extremely rare case of their gem being shattered or cracked.

Fortunately however, gems can be fixed or 'healed', but only by the abilities of an auracorn who posesses healing abilities. An Auracorn cannot die from a cracked or broken gem, however they will be weak and sickly, and they will not be able to summon their horns or perform magic properly.

Eyes and Gem always match/are always the same color as each other. Aura horn may vary however in terms of color, depending.

Additiomal tidbits/design stuff:
- 'Horns' can pass through hair because magic.

- Some Auracorns can have wings, either by birth or due to magic. They can range from fluffy feathery wings to dracanoid to even fairy-like wings.

- They can have a more 'anthro' midform between feral and humanoid.

I wonder how one would determine an Auracorn's magical ability? Like, what identifies one as having healing powers?
