Nether creature doesn't retain original ability?

I finally got around to creating a Nether Creature, and as I started using it, I realized that its innate trait wasn’t activating. Come to find out, the only traits it has are its aura and artifact (I haven’t given it secondary traits yet). Is this supposed to happen? Or has it lost its innate trait due to a glitch?

Supposed to happen. You can have an avatar of your choice that way, But I think it’s base stats still effect it’s character growth.
