Base Form

Upon creation, all Sweetlings have a base form, that mimics the attributes and abilities of another kind of creature. This can be of any species, real, fantastical, or hybridized.

All Sweetlings manipulating their body will eventually revert back to their base form, though that base form can change based on age, mental state, current emotion, or a variety of other factors.


All Sweetlings are made up of various confectioneries; candy, chocolate, fondant, syrup, cake, etc. The composition’s only limitation is that the material in question must contain sugar (Sucrose, to be more specific), as this is all the Candy Heart can properly manipulate.

The Candy Heart, or The Theyra, as it is called, rests within every Sweetling. It is what holds their form together, and contains all the vital processes necessary for living. It is the only truly vulnerable part of their body, as the rest is quite malleable and disposable. The body is also able to be easily reformed provided there are sweets around. Despite this, great care should be taken when handling the Theyra, as even small chips can lead to devastating side effects.

The Theyra dictates the shape of the body as well, through the creation of something typically referred to as a ‘wrapper’. It is an invisible barrier surrounding the entirety of the Sweetling in the mold of its current form, loosely holding its form together. It can easily be pierced to access the body underneath and repairs itself quickly, but is useful for holding the rough shape of the Sweetling, as well as keeping sweets in and contaminants/debris out. Wrappers also negate the natural food magnetization of other Sweetling’s Theyra, reducing the likelihood of body snatching.

Due to their body temperature, most Sweetlings maintain a semisolid state, kept in place by a combination of the wrapper and magnetization to their core. This helps keep their forms in an optimal state for molding and allows for increased mobility.

Form Abilities

A Sweetling’s body attempts to mimic all the abilities of the chosen species form, though the exact abilities themselves will often differ, in order to better suit the sweet-based form.

Some examples of this include dragons breathing things like sugar bubbles or hot tamale dust, a gummy kangaroo’s pouch featuring a mold, and so forth.
