    Let me know if I missed any ^__^.

    Thought I'd make something like this since a lot of folks may not be aware. ^^

    In retrospect, the one I labelled 'wild' (because it seems to have holes in it) could be the 'butterfly ears' that one of the devs mentioned somewhere. <17/03/13 now labelled 'butterfly'>

    The ones you call "small" look an awful lot like "cat" to me. Likewise, "long, serrated" certainly seems vulpine. I think both will be very popular with the Stalkers.

    I was just chatting about these on Mumble with my guild. :D SO awesome! Thanks for posting this! I really never saw a lot of these, and now I'm finding myself suddenly very interested in the Aurin again. (^_^) The bat ears are definitely my thing. Super cute! XD The bat wing ears though throw me off.

    It just means we'll see a lot of Morrigan clones running around. :p

    The "Medium" ears kind of look like mouse ears!

    Hey guys, I'm glad this was helpful for some people ^______^.

    Oh snap, as soon as I saw your avatar I knew I was about to get the smackdown on proper terminology. :laugh:

    Also, you're soooo right about the Morrigan clones - that didn't occur to me! :eek:

    They SO are. I'm almost certainly rolling a Human first, but if I ever make an Aurin, these are my favourite so far. :inlove:

    When I was compiling this, I put it side-by-side with what I labelled 'Medium' ears and decided that they are so similar, I'd classify them as the same thing :p. The ones in the screenshot you linked are more forward-facing than the image I chose, but I suspect that that's an 'ear direction' slider. ;)

    As for the height difference, because Aurin are a Matriarchal society, I have a theory that the males are shorter. In their world, females are larger and more dominant. :geek: (this forum needs an 'I wonder' smiley or something to that effect :p)

    I've been thinking the same thing since we got this screenshot, although I would definitely not mind a height option! Or shrink/grow stims. That'd be fun.

    I want to get my hands on character creation SO BAD! For this reason and all the other races.

    Wow, that's really interesting! The bat-wing ears are so extremely different, I wasn't imagening something like that!

    The bat ears though (not the bat-wing, just regular bat) is veeery tempting though, I think my Aurin might just have gone from being a bunny-girl to having bat ears instead...

    "I'm Commander Evion, and this is my favorite thread on the Citadel." *thumbs up*

    Thanks a bunch for putting this together. I'm definitely anticipating character creation, and this helps a lot. If I find any more, I'll be sure to submit them here!

    I seriously doubt males will be ONLY that short. More likely it's a reference shot between shortest/tallest. :p

    I actually hope that male Aurin on average will be shorter than the females. I don't think I've ever seen that in a game, and it would just be so refreshing, especially with a race that has a matriarchy. It seems like it would be make sense, and it would be something very different, it would switch up our expectations quite a bit, which honestly could be nice. I don't see why the males always have to be taller than the females in every game, no matter how alien the race otherwise is.

    Also, I'm really falling in love with those bat ears, they are so amazingly huge! I will so need to use those for my Aurin!

    Source.

    Now, we haven't seen enough examples and screenshots to know if male Aurin are in fact all shorter than females, but I for one LOVE the idea if this is the case.

    It's refreshing for a MMO, a new idea for a MMO, and it's not like the phenomena is unheard of in nature or anything...

    One clue is that they have a Queen, but only a "consort" to her... not a King. It sounds like a rather Matriarchal society as they've mentioned elsewhere, and above.

    We'll see, but I for one hope there is a size difference favoring larger females and shorter, more agile males. ^^

    If I may seal the deal for you (just in case you haven't seen it in the Meet the Dominion trailer) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FhB3iYv4Ng#t=02m00s

    It happens quickly and is kinda obscured, but I love the way they wobble. :inlove:

    Aah, wobbling is the best! Yes, yes, definitely bat ears for me!
