The Ron Norn is a Norn breed that came with Life Kit #1 for C1 and takes up Norn breed slot 6. They are also included in Creatures 2, and have been converted for use in C12DS, including a patch for their arms and legs.
Ron Norns had not been seen in Albia since Earth Year 1995. Ron was the original Norn, and amazingly the genetic code has survived and mutated since the original Ron. As with the Forest Norns, the male, Foxy, and female, Vixy, are different:
- Foxy has advanced "fight or flight" genetic codes, giving him the edge against Grendel attacks.
- Vixy has a tendency to get very angry when surprised or frightened.
As with the Forest Norns, the new and changed genes of Foxy and Vixy are not sex-specific, so their children of either sex can inherit their traits.
Not long after the Ron Norns were released, Slink stated that the flight or fight mechanism was added to give creatures a way to respond to fear and anger, which had previously left creatures "bewildered" when they experienced these drives.
According to Muppetboy's Geatville, the Ron Norn genome has several genes from the purple mountain norn and forest norn, as well as 8 unique genes.
In GOG.com's GOG Creatures Collection, Foxy and Vixy are available as EXP files upon installation, and they can be injected into the game.
Foxy and Vixy are available to download at Eemfoo.org.
Steve Grand has a norndoll called Ron, donated to him by Data. This is a reference to the 'original' Norn, also called Ron.
