The Doppish are a race of imp-like magical creatures. Their ancestors evolved venom glands in the liver, which over time further evolved into glands for mana, or magical energy.
They produce magical energy in these glands inside the liver, and it's stored throughout the body, with high concentrations in the liver, blood, and their tails.
How plausible is magic coming from the liver of this race? Should I choose a different organ to use?
- The Doppish are mammal-like. They kind of look like a four way cross between a bat, a fox, a dragon, and a cartoon demon. They're humanoid, covered in fur, and have tails with spikes or spades on the end. They also have wings, usually membranous ones.
- I originally just picked the first organ that I thought of that made sense, but now I'm also somewhat influenced by the concept of the four humors, specifically blood, which was said to be produced in the liver and cause people to be excited and social, which I feel fits the Doppish pretty well, they're a highly social sapient species.
- I'm trying to be semi-realistic about things.
