Designing: Trailing



(note that Hyakutake also has strand, see below)


Bullet; White Trailing is a marking that creates a horizontal stripe along the ketucari's sides, often beginning at the eye.
Bullet; White In your ketucari's genotype, trailing is denoted by the letters "nTr" (heterozygous) or "TrTr" (homozygous).
Bullet; White  In its heterozygous form, trailing has a pass rate of 30%. Homozygous trailing has a 55% pass rate.



Trailing can be a lighter or darker color of your chosen base, with a minor deviation in hue. It can also be a fully desaturated color of the base, as long as it is lighter. Trailing may never be pure white or pure black.

These colors would be acceptable for this base color. They are either a lighter, darker, or desaturated version of the base. Notice that this small change is not overbearing.


There is no minimum for trailing, but it must always be visible (unless a white marking covers it). 
Heterozygous trailing can be found in the green area on the below ketucari; homozygous trailing can take up any of the green or blue areas.

Interaction with Other Markings

Bullet; White All markings can be layered under or over trailing.
Bullet; White Trailing may be affected by inferno and vapor.
Bullet; White When a ketucari possesses both trailing and ray, trailing may have a lighter border. This can be a partial border, and may be soft or hard edged:

When a ketucari possesses both trailing and strand, trailing may split into separate strands, as seen below. None of these may be so small as to be confused with barring or spotting, however:

Trailing may have a subtle gradient, as seen below.
Trailing may break apart into sections of varying length, but each section must be long enough to not be mistaken with markings such as spotting.
The edges of trailing may be textured. However, it should not create 'tendrils' that may resemble other markings, such as striping or lacing. This texturing should never reach the ketucari's topline. This marking should never posses 'holes'.
