Anthropomorphic Animals are the most dominant species on Avalice, consisting of many different animal species.
Dragons are one of the most advanced, but also the currently rarest race to exist on Avalice. They're more often taller than the average Avalician and possess high physical power, intelligence, and also various different animal traits.
The Dragons haven't always lived on Avalice. After being stranded when their ship crashed on said Planet, they spent countless years trying to find a way back to their homeworld, but to no avail. With no way for them to return home, the Dragons decided to use their technology to help the Avalicians survive and prosper, also condensing the last of their energy reserves into the Kingdom Stone. Most of the present Avalicians only know about these events as a large Dragon soaring across the sky in a ball of fire, and the ancestors building the Three Kingdoms Shang Tu, Shang Mu & Shuigang in it's honor, with said creature transforming into the Kingdom Stone later on.
Later it's revealed that the Dragons respected the wishes of the Avalicians and let their influence pass into this legend. Knowing of this, however, a Dragon Scientist programmed a Robotic AI with an important message for the descendants of Avalice, knowing that there will come a time in the future when the truth needs to be told. Until their near end, the Dragons continued to live on Avalice in a region now known as Pangu Lagoon, and mix bred with the native Avalicians. At the moment, only Water and Earth Dragons have been seen alive. However, Dragons in the other elements might have existed, or may still exist.
The Ancient Dragons are based on Dragons from east-asian mythology, with the Dragons in movies and the statue in Shang Mu City Hall looking like the commonly depicted big snake-like Dragons with four legs. However, sometime before they stranded, they've have become anthropomorphic, much smaller but still taller than the average Avalician.
Living on Avalice and mix breeding, the Dragons obtained a few of the native's traits. The present mixed breeds look even more distinct from that, not having many of the visual traits the full blooded Dragons had, only and most notably, sharing the horns and claws. Aside from that, they also have the posibility of having genetic defects at birth. For example, Lilac's fish fin ears are undeveloped, leaving her mostly deaf and in need of hearing aids, and unable to breath underwater.

The Non-Anthropomorphic Animals on Avalice don't talk and are not as intelligent as their Anthropomorphic counterparts, have the same inteligence of the non-anthropomorphic ones on Earth.
There are also Non-Anthropomorphic Avians living on Avalice. Like real Avians, they can get easily frightened and fly away when bigger animals come close to them and likely live in nests. The only known Non-Anthropomorphic Avians on Avalice are Pigeons and Crested Pigeons, which are common in Shang Mu's Commercial District, and Emus, which seem to be two times bigger than normal Emus. The only known Emu on Avalice is the Bone Golem, located in the Relic Maze.
