Bullet; White  Ember is an irregular marking along the chest of the ketucari. It takes the shape of flames flickering along
the ketucari's underside. Ember can be hard-edged or soft-edged, but always has a definite flame-like shape.
Bullet; White In your ketucari's genotype, ember is denoted by the letters "nEmr" (heterozygous) or "EmrEmr" (homozygous).
Bullet; White In its heterozygous form, ember has a pass rate of 45%. Homozygous ember has a 70% pass rate.


Color and Shape

Ember can be any color of flame, even colors achieved by the reaction of certain chemicals. The only requirement is that, in ketucari who do not have the dilution, smokey, or flaxen genes, the color must be bright and saturated.

Acceptable colors are:
Orange, red, yellow, blue, green, pink, violet, and white.
You may use up to two of these colors in your ember.

Exclamation If using white, be sure that the marking does not look similar to minimal white. You can achieve this by making sure the marking
has the classic ember shape.

These are examples of acceptable ember colors, though you are not limited to this palette. These colors are vibrant and saturated, as ember should be.

Ember No by Matriarchs-Haunt
These colors are too desaturated for ember. The only time you have the option of making ember this desaturated is if you ketucari has the dilute, smokey, or flaxen genes.

Shape wise, ember has a solid core with "tendrils" emanating from it like as seen below. As long as this basic shape is clearly discernible, you may make the edges as soft as seen on Shiva 733.

The blue areas below show the maximum spread of ember, while green denotes the minimum.

Interaction with Other Markings

Bullet; White All markings can be layered under or over ember.
Bullet; White Ember can be influenced by vapor.
Bullet; White If your ketucari has the vent gene, you may connect ember and vent as seen on this ketucari (who also displays the vapor combination):


Here are some small accents you can add to your designs to make them more unique!

• Ember may have a subtle gradient, like below:
