Anigmates (an-ig-mits) are a concept common throughout Revecroit culture; animals or monsters with which a given person identifies strongly with. Most people have chosen at least one, although multiple are common, and there’s no real limit to how many someone might have.
People often carry jewelry, charms, or other adornments in the likeness of one or more of their anigmates; some make or commission clothing or accessories that represent them, while others may even use tattoos or body modification to more closely resemble an anigmate or a combination of several (changes to eyes, ears, or other facial features, modded tails or wings, etc).
Revecroit who are strongly attached to their anigmates may opt to keep or train them personally, or dedicate themselves to conservation and awareness.
