The "Ancient" marking manifests as intricate, circuit-like patterns that embellish a Rexal's body. These unique configurations seem almost etched or embedded into the rexals's skin. 

When active, the patterns emit a soft luminescence, in sync with the Rexal's magic color. The lines might also gently emanate a wisp of smoke or steam.

In art you are allowed to depict Ancient active or dormant, as long as the rules are met!

The 3 Different Color Options for Ancient

Dormant - Glittering, shiny black Dormant - Darker or Lighter than Base Coat Active - Magic Color



Here is what the smoke should look like!

In its dominant form, the Ancient showcases an even greater depth of mystery. Sprouting subtly from the luminescent lines are mythical symbols, adding an extra layer of intrigue. They should never represent anything you can see in the real world, nor should they be actual writing in any language.

They should remain close to the lines, appearing as an extension rather than separate entities. Moreover, they should not stray too far from the Rexal's body or dominate the overall design.

These symbols always float upwards. Additionally, you are allowed to fade them out towards the top.
