New! Changeling colour chart.
somehow i feel like most animals don’t really like changelings. they can feel the supernatural and don’t like it. the only ones i can imagine not minding them are bats.
hm, most changelings can’t transform into anything below their own bodymass, but i don’t see a reason why those who can wouldn’t do it.
i guess. rogue changelings go for flight rather than fight though, since when ONE notices them, the rest of the hive is bound to follow soon enough.
going by the comics, they can all talk and actually enjoy messing with the mane 6, so there’s no reason to believe they can’t have little personality quirks of their own.
in my case, for example, the two changelings who carry miasma’s incense burners always manage to hit each other and then start fighting.
probably magic. not sure. anything that is quick and effective and makes sure you stay dead. maybe she’d just order her changelings to tear you apart.
Let’s say that if either of the queens had captured you because you planned to sabotage something for her hive.
Miasma would make some ridiculous death machine or have you fight against a wild beast for her own amusement.
Ambrosia would perform some nonsensical, cruel experiments on you to satisfy her curiosity and give her something to play with (like, “how loud do you scream if i start cutting off your leg?”).
Myxine would just shoot you.
(Figured I’d do a proper write-up on these guys)
The Miasma Hive is probably the second largest of the known hives. It usually resides underneath or at the edges of big cities like Las Pegasus or Manehattan, modifying sewage systems and/or garbage dumps to their needs. They eat rotten food and the occasional carcass to produce their body liquids, which, in addition to their choice of living space, gives the whole hive a particularly rancid smell. Sometimes it even gets so bad that it’s noticeable when a changeling has transformed himself into another creature.
Their Queen, Miasma herself, is a very vain and snobby person and tries to appear better than she is. She has two changelings follow her around with incense burners wherever she goes and douses herself in perfume as often as possible. One wonders what is worse, the rotten smell of the hive, or the overwhelming stench of sweet perfume contrasting with it.
Although trying to appear noble and sophisticated, the queen has a very bad temper and can turn from sweet to sour in mere seconds.*
(She also has very bad table manners (and taste), and won’t even stop short of literally rolling around in her food. It’s not helped by the fact that she has holes in her cheeks so you can see her chewing even if she has her mouth closed)
The hive’s manner of gathering victims isn’t very sophisticated, ranging from cries of help from out of a gully to simply waiting for someone to get stuck in their secretions while drunkenly wandering about at night.
*Think Prof. Ratigan from “The Great Mouse Detective”.
partially answered here, and in addition i think the cons would outweigh the advantages. for one, needing more changelings to impersonate just one being (who doesn’t necessarily have more love to share).
miasma’s hive is also named after her. she’s vain like that.
