There is a character I'd like to bring back...

So among the few I had decided to retire, there is one in particular I have been wishing to bring back for a very long time now...

If any of you remember him...

He was from an open species but since said species is apparently going through a revamp or is no longer open (judging by the changes of the creator's character and the deletion of the species' page), I don't know how I am supposed to bring him back. I always loved his design and personality and I am sad just at the thought that I can't play him anymore...

Such is the problem when you create a character of someone else's species. Sometimes, they are so inconsistent due to their creator changing them over time...

I am lost right now so if anyone could give me some species/design ideas? I don't wanna change his design completely, but considering it's the old design of the aforementioned species, I'm not sure if it's a good idea to keep it the way it is.

I tried to contact the creator a couple of years ago by mail for help but never got an answer. Though it turns out they changed their email address and most likely never saw my mail in the first place. But now, I don't dare ask them anymore. If they ever see this post though (I haven't seen them in the TEFc in a long time so I highly doubt so), I would be happy if they contact me by mail or on Discord.

*sigh* I really don't know what to do with him...

This is the exact reason

This is the exact reason closed species rub me the wrong way sometimes. :/

Yes, he may have been created as part of an open species but the owner deciding to close it now is not on you and, in my opinion, you should have the freedom to keep your character intact, but I know how people are about this so altering his design would be the way to go. I'm not familiar with this species but you could change some of the animal components, like giving him cervine hind legs and a bird's tail, or draw inspiration from different mythological creatures like the griffin and peryton.
