This marking isn't so much a marking than a scar. If, in an incredible rare occurence, should an unhatched rex spark magic within the shell, it can happen that it injures them, leaving a mark clearly telling of what happened. Thus, rex see this, albeit it being rare and rather pretty, as a sign of clumsiness.

Symmetry Rules



  • Leid must at least have 2 colors present, but can have as many as you can make work.
  • The colors itself, can have gradients.
  • Leid is allowed a partial soft edge.
  • Despite the two former rules, leid should still show the colors clearly, they should not appear to be smudged into each other, or blended too much.
  • The shape of the entire marking should appear similar to the examples.
  • Leid can have subtle dark edges around each and all colors (watercolor edges).
  • Leid sits on top of everything! Even white markings and other apex layer markings! 
  • Even dom Fade cannot fully desaturate Leid. It's would still show colors subtly, even when desaturated.

Leid is a unique marking that manifests as a vibrant scar on a Rexal's coat, its brilliant colors capturing the eye. The flexibility of this marking allows for the choice of any colors, provided you incorporate between three to five distinct hues. These selected colors should be noticeably saturated, creating a stark contrast against the rest of the Rexal's design.

The Leid marking embodies more than just its radiant colors. Each color can display gradients within their specific color range, enhancing the visual intricacy of the marking. The configuration of Leid presents as a prominent scar with several smaller strands branching out, giving it a distinctive and unforgettable appearance.

The lore associated with the Leid marking plays a vital role in its interpretation. It's a rare marking, signaling an unusual event where an unhatched Rexal prematurely sparks magic within its shell. This early activation of magic can result in injury, leaving a vivid scar as an indelible mark of the mishap. Despite its stunning appearance, the Rexal community views this marking as a sign of clumsiness, given its unconventional origin.

This is a nice way to set up layers for this marking. Each color it's own layer, clipped to the main marking.


Here we have a wrong example. Let's see...

  • Leid doesn't look much like a scar and more like a marking.
  • The colors are not saturated and bright enough! They don't stand out fully.
  • The colors also are too shaped and geometric.

When Leid is dominant, its vibrant colors permeate even deeper, tinting not only the scar itself but also the flesh and any additional scars on the Rexal. This saturation of color seeps into every part of the Rexal's injuries and skin, including the typically pink sheen layer.
