Designing: Lintosi Bases




• The lintosi gene causes the ancestor's base colors to display in a soft edged pattern on the cub. For example if your cub has Kaur 001 and Rufio 002 on their lineage, they can have jade and charcoal.
 In your ketucari's genotype, lintosi is denoted by the letters "nLs" (heterozygous) or "LsLs" (homozygous).
• In its heterozygous form, lintosi has a pass rate of 7%. Homozygous lintosi has a 32% pass rate.

Color and Shape

You can only use two colors for lintosi. It can be ANY color that is present in the cub's Ancestry.
That is, any ketucari that fill in this lineage for the cub:

------------------------------------------ SSS:Unknown
----------------- SS: Unknown
------------------------------------------ SSD: Unknown
Sire: Unknown

Before designing your chimera cub, FIRST fill in their lineage to know exactly what colors can be used!

You do not need to color pick from the ancestor's base coat, any swatch from their base coat's sliders is acceptable. Both colors may come from One ancestor. If an ancestor has Lintosi, Chimera, or Tri-Lintosi, you may select from any of their displayed colors and/or their unmutated base coat. If an ancestor has Chromata, you may select from either displayed base coat.

If you select a modified base coat that allows dun striping, please note that you may not inclue the dun stripe unless your Chimera/Lintosi/Tri-Lintosi has a dun-striping permitting gene itself.
When selecting base coats from color mutations, you will need to follow those color mutation rules on that "side" of the geno. You may select from more than one mutation.

You may pull from albino for lintosi base coats. Only genes able to show on top of albino should appear on top of albino.

You may ALSO use the geno's own natural base coat in addition to, or instead of, colors from the ancestry.

 The patterning of the colors should resemble the patterning on cross foxes in that base coat meetings should always be soft edged.

Lintosi coloring covers the whole body.

Interaction with Other Markings

• All markings express normally over a lintosi base. They will follow the same color rules for whatever base they are expressing over. For example, if your lintosi is brown and jade, markings that lay over both colors will shift from brown to jade as well. For example:
• When interacting with Segment, the lintosi colors chosen will shift down to a different color in the same family. For example, opal and blue have shifted into different stone shades here, and stone shifted into brown where segment affects sable.

Lintosi coloring covers the whole body.


The tri modifier (+Tri, which would look like nLs+Tri in the genotype) allows you to pull 3 colors from the lineage rather than two. This modifier has a 40% pass rate.
