My mum has an issue with Newt Scamander’s name because Scamander sounds like salamander and a salamander is a type of newt but I am 300% sure that it is not a coincidence since it comes from the woman that brought us Wolf Raised-by-Wolves the werewolf and Dog Black the black dog
Adrien wears a lot of clothes due to him being the sun spirit, he is constantly exposed to the heat.
And onto that, another reason he wears a lot of clothes aka the giant robe is because he has a lot of scars and all sorts from battles, the heat and just general angsty shit (more to come on this next time)
I’ll give you this though; because Mari has rejected him for…decades, sometimes he gets lonely which is why out of the two, he is more likely to go to his human version so he can to interact with people.
But, their human forms have restrictions.
To transform into their human versions, they have to take off their respective earrings.
They have a limited amount of time in their human versions, as the time passes, their tattoos begin to fade and they cannot, at all costs, have their tattoos fully faded and gone.
If the tattoos fully fade, they become mortals, and as much as Adrien does want to become a mortal, the balance of basically everything in the universe goes to the shits and basically we might die.
Due to his excessive use of his human version, he is often scolded by gods. Adrien has never gotten his tattoo fully faded but he’s had some very close calls.
Mari has every constellation on her back as tattoos and as time passes for her in her human form, the constellations disappear one by one.
Both Adrien and Mari are saddened about their losing connection to humans. They were once actively interactive with the people way back then but during the heavy times of industrialisation and of course, environmental issues, sometimes it’s hard for both to reach out. And this has definitely affected both physically…
Mari fell in love with Human Adrien in the time of the French Revolution when he fought as a soldier.
In their spirit forms, only animals and chosen humans can sense Adrien and Mari.
Birds love Adrien and can sense him more strongly than any other animals and tend to follow him around in his spirit form.
Spirit Adrien has seen Human Mari….more to come on this later.
I’m not going to reveal all of this yet but here’s the thing; the spirits don’t just watch over the people for decades without doing anything…
And Mari and Adrien are definitely not the only spirits around.
That’s it for now but yeah….def some more soon ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
