Crepuscular, originally from Fasach (Africa). Uncommon. They have above average magic. About 70% of painted dogs have magic. Of those, about 10% have low power, 10% have below average, 15% have average, 50% have above average, and 15% have high. They make excellent charms and artifacts. They are about halfway anthropomorphic and ambipedal. They have somewhat sensitive skin and cannot tolerate tattoo ink. Perfumes and cosmetics are risky if not specially formulated for them. They really like fur paint, but favor a thick paste that stays atop the fur rather than getting down to the skin.
