What happens when I reach the next level?

My Russian avatar is now fully grown and has his full Cossack uniform. I got a message telling me that I needed x thousand more words to get to the next level. What happens to him when I get my 55 000 known words? Does he grow a beard? I think a goatee might suit him, or as he’s Russian, perhaps a full beard would be more appropriate.

Retirement home for elderly former Cossacks ?

Nothing at the moment, but this may change at some point in the future…

He will evolve beyond his physical form and into a being of pure energy.

Does that mean he’ll revert to being a badge with numbers on?

Ha ha, Sanne, very funny.
