The Nix family is comprised of three species - Nix, Pedigree Nix, and Sugarnix.
Nix, or Nixten, are agile, cunning mammals that love to collect things, and are known for their tendency to steal.
Each individual nix has preferred objects they collect, such as blue things, lanterns, or cutlery. Tame Nix will often present their owner with “gifts” (which will be non-stolen if they’re properly trained) Once a nix forms a bond with someone, it’s loyal for life.
Their long tails can support their own body weight, and the tip of their tails emit telekinetic energy up to a radius of six inches. Nix can use this ability to manipulate objects at the end of their tails (such as a glove) as extensions of their bodies. Some have even been known to use this ability to open locks through the other side of doors and windows (homeowners in cities with nix populations must have anti-nix locks installed)
Pedigree nix are the bigger, more heavily-domesticated, and fancier version of Nix. Pedigree are generally very easy to train, and will rarely steal. Like others in the nix family,
There are two main pedigree nix body types - Alpha and Beta. Alpha have a shorter midsection and longer legs, whereas Beta have a very long, slinky midsection and shorter legs. Alpha have greater physical strength where Beta have stronger psychic powers, and the strongest in the entire Nix species family.
