    I'd like to write a Fauna page for Dexai. I call it the Stone Pan'dao. It's be based off of the real-life Giant Panda, but with the twist that they slowly turn to stone over their lifetime, turning into a statue upon reaching the age of 20. It'd come with Sihai myth attached, saying the species was cursed by the Loong some time ago. The Pan'dao would litter regions they live in with statues of themselves, and Sihai would use these statues as decorations in their towns and palaces.

    If the turning-to-stone idea doesn't work, I would be willing to change it.

    I apologize it's been so long before a reply was sent, a lot got lost in the shuffle of the past few weeks.

    Overall, the idea is acceptable, but the lore concept of the Loong cursing a creature isn't compatible with their personality. Instead, the animals turning into stone in their last few days of life, and then solidifying into curled statues, as some part of a strange natural process without much mythos around it, is acceptable. You can state some modern beliefs, but the Loong don't curse things.

    Does this sound like an agreeable change?
