Femarctic Donations

A donation is a term used for Femarctic offspring. An unborn donation gestates forty days within her birther (a Zaxiri). Upon delivery, her registered maker (or the caregiver licensed to take her home–usually a bonded Subak) collects her.

When newborn, a donation is called a ‘doe,’ an affectionate term in the Ramaxi language that also applies to lovers, and sometimes strangers. A doe is born with a full set of small teeth that grow as she matures. A doe is physically capable of holding up her head, sitting, and eating solid food, within five days.

Twenty days after her birth, when she begins to walk, she’s called a donat. By age eight, the brain of a donat develops functional cognitive levels on par with pre-teen helovx. At this age Marixi and Hizaki leave home to caste-train. For Bizaki, Subaki and Zaxiri, age ten is when they leave home to live and learn with their caste. During these ‘donational years‘ they mature physically and sexually, as their social skills develop within the confines of their castes.

Intellectual adolescence begins at age twelve, but donational-age femmar are considered adults once they reach the age of sixteen (for Hizaki and Marixi the age is eighteen). They become citizens when their citizenry-training is complete, and they’ve acquired their citizenry credit account.


Caste-Specific Traits

  • Bizakidoe can put both hands together intentionally at birth.
    • Bizakidoe are often the last to communicate, but as donats, they are the only donats capable of solitary play.
  • an Hizakidoe is capable of facial recognition at birth.
    • Hizakidoe articulate sentences faster than other castes due to developing comprehension sooner; this is because they consistently observe their makers.
  • a Subakidoe is born smiling; she has a fully developed sense of smell at birth; Zaxiridoe are born crying until skin contact occurs with a maker or caregiver.
    • Subakidoe are the first to communicate verbally; if being raised in a pod with Zaxiridoe, each will begin talking to each other before they can articulate proper words.
  • a Marixidoe is born screaming and kicking; she calms only when the soles of her feet encounter something solid.
    • Marixidoe require constant supervision, as they are boisterous before and after they learn to walk, and are often too rambunctious to be unattended with weaker siblings.
