Species: Atsudan(ni)

Name - Atsuden (a word meaning without-sun, or night, a tribute to their Night Cat origins)

Home World and Habitat - Genetically engineered on Aibla by the Jhee, but they claim Lavana as a home world. Atsuden are quite adaptable beasts, much like the genetic donors the Night Cats, and can survive in almost any climate, barring extreme desert-dryheat.

Height at Shoulder - 4'8" to about 5'8"… they're not very tall.

Coloration - Their fur, normally short, can be a small variety of colors. Black is most common, and may include a tiny white or silver marking, usually on the forehead or chest. Deep deep blue is the next most common, and is often seen with many silver or white flecks, giving the impression of wearing the night sky. Least common is a dark smoky gray, which almost never has any other color in the fur. Their eyes are any colors, truly, even orange or yellow. Atsuden usually wear clothing (except when in the wilds of Lavana, where it doesn't really matter); the almost-universal garb is knee-length leggings of some soft but sturdy fabric. Though female Atsuden do have small breasts, shirts aren't common unless socially required.

Temperament - Much like their Night Cat kindred; very feline. Atsuden, despite being gengineered, take pride in themselves as individuals, as a species, and as Lavanians. Being quite small in number, they value each and every one of their fellows and would never think of killing one of their own. They fight to live, they don't live to fight; most Atsuden are excellent warriors, but will not kill unless forced by either an honor-bound challenge or the situation. They're affectionate, playful, curious explorers otherwise, quite skilled with technology and preferring what they take from the Jhee to Olashi machinery.

Description - Again like Night Cats, Atsuden wouldn't earn a second glance from nearly any spacer or Lavanian. They've short, glossy fur of a dark hue and vivid cattish eyes; their build is humanoid with feline features (think anthro cat). Their tails are half as long as one would expect a cat to have, but with retractable claws, broad hindpaws and nimble and unusual five-fingered hands (as opposed to the Lavanian norm of four fingers), sharp fangs and toned muscles, Atsuden may appear average but are anything except. Their running speed may not enable them to race a Morolla, their strength may not rival a Siyymn, and perhaps their agility isn't that of a grey Tokathe… but never underestimate a creature formed from the blood of the first Lavanian.

Technology - They mostly use/"appropriate" Jhee technology, which is overall much more advanced than Olashi/Lavanian technology. However, Atsuden are quite skilled and adaptable, able to learn very quickly almost anything.
