For years, the gods and goddesses have watched on while the humans developed through the ears, as they advanced both personally and technologically. Lately one thing has become quite clear to them; humans have a habit of being very irresponsible when it comes to their environment and the animals that reside within that environment. They came to a decision, fearing for the safety and longevity of their sacred animals, they have decided to create a special group of nymphs to help protect their sacred animals.
These nymphs’ life forces are each attached to the animal they are a nymph of; if that animal becomes extinct, the nymph will die. The gods considered the fact that here are thousands of animals and creatures that roam the earth, but not wanting to over extend their powers, they have decided to only concern themselves with the animals that are sacred to them.
When they aren’t out in the world helping other nymphs and helping to protect their animals, they spend their time at camp.
They have a telepathic/empathetic connection with nature and other nymphs. They also have a special, stronger, connection with other animal nymphs
As they are nymphs they do not age, remaining eternally young.
Their senses of smell, sight and hearing are more enhanced, enabling them to sniff out monsters, track down demigods, etc.
They are able to summon animals to aid them, they have the best control over their own animal type
Specific to each Animal Type
Each type of animal nymph has their life force attached to that species, so if a species were to go extinct the nymph would die
Each nymph is able to change into the type of animal they are, and only that type. So the bear nymph could not turn into a mouse, but it could turn into a grizzly, black bear, polar bear, etc.
While In animal form they have all the normal abilities of the animal. So if they are a hawk they can fly.
While in regular nymph/person form, they only retain passive characteristics/traits from the animal. So if they are a hawk, perhaps they are clausterphobic in enclosed spaces, but they cannot fly
“How does one become a butterfly?" she asked. "You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.”
Caparina is very graceful and agile, she loves dancing, writing and drawing. She is horrific at fighting, so prefers to stay out of it. She loves flowers, her favourite flower is a primrose. She loves socializing and ALWAYS has to be in the centre of attention. Caparina can be quite bitchy when she wants to be, but over all she's quite nice, and if you're ever looking for someone to talk to you should come to her.
