Touch Type

“The senses make for interesting TCP types, touch type being no different. The effects of one's ability linger far longer than one would expect, leading to confusion once it fades. I can imagine for some, it causes longing…”

Touch types can sacrifice health to create or amplify a sense of touch on any surface. Not only does this allow the touch type to feel things touching the surface it is placed on, but if placed on a living creature, that area will become sensitive to the touch for the creature it is placed on. This effect is greater the more of a sense of touch the area had to begin with- a fingertip will become sensitive to the point of unpleasantness, while a strand of hair may only receive minor sensitivity.
Physical Appearance: Touch types have large, imposing bodies, with elongated arms, legs, and necks. Their hands have individual fingers, the fingertips of which have no skin, but instead squishy and gummy fluid that drips when the TCP is unfocused. They have stripes along the bottom of their arms, droopy-looking eyespots, and long, drooping, thin ear nubs.
Voice: Sounds not unlike the sounds heard when two objects brush against one another.
Skin: Standard skin, but with tiny grooves that cannot be seen with the naked eye, and can only barely be felt.
Fluid: Standard fluid
Special Attributes: None
Other Notes: Touch types prefer environments where sensory input can be easily controlled, and avoid any surprising, unpleasant feelings. It seems to vary between touch types for their exact focus, but many of these TCPs gravitate towards sensory seeking, especially with specific textures and objects. They are highly social and like to interact in large groups, especially around other sensory-based TCPs. Energy level varies among individuals, but they are generally seen as excitable. They seem to enjoy food type products that have a variety of textures, and many enjoy absorbing food through their fingers and palms. Sharing sensory experiences with each other, whether that's directly through their ability or simply swapping items, is considered a deeply personal experience and a large part of touch type culture.
