The one topic that everyone knows about, and yet information still remains elusive and unclear. Here's what we know about Faunus so far: Faunus is both singular and plural, like the word deer. Faunus are essentially humans, except for the fact that they display one (1) animalistic trait. So far, the list of Faunus featured in the show are: Cat (ears), Monkey (tail), Rabbit (ears), Ram (horns, unconfirmed - see Faunus protest/white fang uprising news flash, episode 1), unidentified horned Faunus (see Faunus protest/white fang uprising news flash, episode 1), unidentified Faunus (perhaps either rabbit or canid ears, see Faunus protest/white fang uprising news flash, episode 1), bear (ears, unconfirmed - see Faunus protest/white fang uprising news flash, episode 1), possible bull horns (Adam Taurus). Faunus are known to have exceptional night vision. It is also noteworthy that every Faunus so far in the series has only displayed a mammalian animal trait. To start, I'd like to point out that as far as canon has demonstrated currently, it is impossible for Faunus to have more than one animalistic trait. I'm tired of seeing cat Faunus OCs that have cat ears and a tail (though none on this site, thank God). Seriously, if you're into cat girls, find another anime. Also, I'm intrigued by how Faunus came into existence, which I think has the potential to be a major plot arc later on. I can't imagine that Monty would try to get by just by saying two species happened to evolve into practically identical species, aside from one animalistic trait. My personal theory is that Faunus were the by-product of a genetics excitement gone wrong (or right? Hm…). Any thoughts? Feel free to discuss anything that pertains to the Faunus sub-species (or are they their own true species, and unable to breed with humans?) in this thread.
