The White Peafowl is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.


Like other colour variants of Friends, White Peafowl is not too different from the Friend she is based on, aside from her stark white colour scheme. The strands of hair on top of her head curve downwards in opposite directions unlike Indian Peafowl’s. Her tights and shoes are a pale pink, and the beak marking on her bangs is a slightly more vibrant pink. The only original colour she retains from Indian Peafowl is the small feather-like pin on her shirt.

In Real Life

While often mistaken for albino, white peafowls are typically the result of leucism in regular Indian peafowls. Leucism is a hereditary genetic condition which keeps the birds from being able to distribute the pigment of their typical colouration to their feathers, resulting in a gorgeous and stunning all-white plumage. Their eyes under the effects of leucism become a striking blue-gray. White peachicks (peafowl offspring) are born a creamy yellow and gradually become all-white as they mature.

The stunning plumage of a white peacock.

Their beauty notwithstanding, leucistic birds are (in general) sometimes hunted for their rare feathers and thereby have a shorter median lifespan. Additionally, some research suggests that they fair less successfully in the mating game than their more common counterparts and that their feathers are weaker and more prone to wear, hindering flight. Unlike birds living with albinism, however, their natural lifespans are unaffected, and white peafowls are able to live relatively typical lives despite the physical differentiation which sets them apart from the rest of their species.
