Nye have the body of a cougar, with a fluffy tail, and a long neck and head like a weasel. Extending from its shoulders are large feathered wings. They nye's ears are very tall, and the edges are feathered. The effect makes the nye appear to have two large main wings, and two smaller wings on its head. The nye fur ranges from a light brown, with a vanilla chest, neck, and muzzle, to black or even white.
The male nye is larger and more muscular than the female. A male nye can grow up to five feet at the shoulder and eight feet long from head to flank (not including tail).
The female nye can grow up to four feet tall, and six feet from head to flank. There is some deviation in this, but this is considered average.
Nye are not very social creatures, and thus are very rarely seen. If befriended, they can become a steadfast and loyal companion. They are believed to be wise, and very intelligent.
Nye can survive without mysterial. They fly upon natural wind currents which makes their wings useless in caves and underground.
Nye live for around 80 years.
