PostSubject: Interactions of Azrein.    Tue Nov 08, 2011 7:21 pm

Taken from wiki to be edited to Azrein specifics.
Outlined are the different way that horses, and thus Azrein, interact with eachother. This is a guide meant for those who are new to rping a horse-type character.
Azrein, being more intelligent and conscientious than horses, are better able to control their emotions and motions. However, being horses, they will exhibit many of the same horse behaviors.
Listed below you will find information on how horses use body language to interact, the different types of vocalization, what it means when a horse bares their teeth, and how Azrein specifically communicate to other Azrein and humans. The communication is especially important in RPing an Azrein, so if you read nothing else, please read over that!
Also included are the many ear positions and what they mean, and the moods that tails can indicate. I hope that you find this guide helpful in your RP adventures.

PostSubject: Body Language   Thu Nov 10, 2011 2:20 pm

Body language
Body language is the most important tool used for communication. A seemingly calm horse can be given away by the stamping of a foot, rolling of the eyes, or a simple flick of the tail. In a herd setting, discipline is maintained first through body language and gestures, then, if needed, through physical contact such as biting, kicking, nudging, or other means of forcing a misbehaving herd member to move. In most cases, the animal that successfully causes another to move is dominant, whether it uses only body language or adds physical reinforcement.

PostSubject: Vocalization and Mouths   Thu Nov 10, 2011 2:21 pm

Vocalization
Horses are not particularly vocal, but do have four basic vocalizations: the neigh or whinny, the nicker, the squeal and the snort.[9][10] They may also make sighing, grunting or groaning noises at times.

Mouths
Bared teeth, as noted above, are an expression of anger and an imminent attempt to bite. Horses, particularly foals, sometimes indicate appeasement of a more aggressive herd member by extending their necks and clacking their teeth. Horses making a chewing motion with no food in the mouth do so as a soothing mechanism, possibly linked to a release of tension, though some horse trainers view it as an expression of submission. Horses will sometimes extend their upper lip when scratched in a particularly good spot, and if their mouth touches something at the time, their lip and teeth may move in a mutual grooming gesture. A very relaxed or sleeping horse may have a loose lower lip and chin that may extend further out than the upper lip.

Communication between Azrein and Azrein, Azrein and Humans
Azrein are considered angels or spirits of sorts by the people of the Floating Island. Azrein are able to effectively communicate mind-to-mind with the other Azrein they've spent time around. However, there are limitations to this. Azreins are only able to communicate mind-to-mind with those Azreins that they have already met. HOWEVER, if an Azrein feels a strong emotion, despair, pain, rage, etc, for example, then all Azrein within a certain distance (say, 1o miles or so) will feel a 'shadow' of that emotion and the direction it came from.
The King is essentially in the center of a web created by the minds of all the Azrein of the .
All of the minds of the Azrein on the Isle make up a complex web. Where each thread crosses is the mind of an Azrein on the Isle, with the King in the center of the web. He is able
That is unique to the King, but Azrein that have met each other are the same way.

So communication of vital things are quick. Think of the seven degrees of seperation -- that holds true to Azrein and humans on the Isle as well.
And because Azrein and their Chosen can speak mind-to-mind and share emotions as well, effectively the information is passed quickly and efficeintly.
so. they can't just talk to any person.
right, pyki. Unless a very, very, VERY strong desire takes them over.
Like, if their Chosen is in danger, they can call out to anyone -- human or Azrein -- that are nearby for help

PostSubject: Ear movements   Thu Nov 10, 2011 2:21 pm

Ears
Ear position is often one of the most obvious behaviors that humans notice when interpreting horse body language. In general, a horse will direct the pinna of an ear toward the source of input it is also looking at. Horses have a narrow range of binocular vision, and thus a horse with both ears forward is generally concentrating on something in front of it. Similarly, when a horse turns both ears forward, the degree of tension in the horse's pinna suggests if the animal is calmly attentive to its surroundings or tensely observing a potential danger. However, because horses have strong monocular vision, it is possible for a horse to position one ear forward and one ear back, indicative of similar divided visual attention. This behavior is often observed in horses while working with humans, where they need to simultaneously focus attention on both their handler and their surroundings. A horse may turn the pinna back when also seeing something coming up behind it.
Due to the nature of a horse's vision, head position may indicate where the animal is focusing attention. To focus on a distant object, a horse will raise its head. To focus on an object close by, and especially on the ground, the horse will lower its nose and carry its head in a near-vertical position.

The clearest signal a horse sends is when both ears are flattened tightly back against the head, sometimes with eyes rolled so that the white of the eye shows, often indicative of pain or anger, frequently foreshadowing aggressive behavior that will soon follow. Sometimes ears laid back, especially when accompanied by a strongly swishing tail or stomping or pawing with the feet are signals used by the horse to express discomfort, irritation, impatience, or anxiety. However, horses with ears slightly turned back but in a loose position, may be drowsing, bored, fatigued, or simply relaxed. When a horse raises its head and neck, the animal is alert and often tense. A lowered head and neck may be a sign of relaxation, but depending on other behaviors may also indicate fatigue or illness.

PostSubject: Tail motions    Thu Nov 10, 2011 2:22 pm

Slight tail swishing is often a tool to dislodge biting insects or other skin irritants. However, aggressive tail-swishing may indicate either irritation, pain or anger. The tail tucked tightly against the body may indicate discomfort due to cold or, in some cases, pain. The horse may demonstrate tension or excitement by raising its tail, but also by flaring its nostrils, snorting, and intently focusing its eyes and ears on the source of concern.
