Home World~ Spirit

Height at the Shoulder~ 4 ft.

Species' Colors~ Earth tones, small concentric circles as markings.

Temperment~ Competitive, though rarely hostile about it. They simply love competing. Cowards, the physically unfit, or mentally abnormal are not tolerated among their species and are either cast out or killed. Other than that, they're friendly and good-natured.

Species' Description~ Quadrupeds, these cretts are built for speed and nothing else. Their heads are long-muzzled and streamlined, with internal ears and an extra eyelid for going at high speeds. They have no whiskers and their nostrils are set on the sides of their muzzles, also for aerodynamics. Their tail is long, sinuous, and used purely for balancing. Even their fur is sleek and short, to better cut through the wind. Their chest is deep and their waist narrow, their spine is flexible beyond all reason and their ribs are narrow and also flexible, able to move with each stride. Their lungs are huge, as is their heart (hence the deep chest) to provide ample oxygen and blood when running. Their legs are incredibly long, with their hind legs being longer than their sleek torso! Their forelegs are much like a cheetah's, with the shin bone and ankle elongated, and the toes on the dog-like paw much elongated and tipped with strong, curving claws for traction. Their hind legs are very powerful, yet lean, and can propell the crett over 50 ft into the air. Their hind legs have the same paws, yet instead of three long toes they have four, with the same claws. Hresahrs can go up to 350 mph in a sprint for, at most, five minutes. They can sustain a speed of 250 mph for over an hour, and anything under 200 for days on end, provided they've drunk and eaten enough. To keep their bodies light, their bones are of a special material (think Pernese dragon-bones) and many are hollow. Also aiding the lightness, food (meat) and water passes through their system quickly, taking about two hours to digest and be eliminated. As a result, these cretts must eat every day, and will starve in four days. They'll die of thirst in a week. However, sleep they simply don't need that often. About every eight days, they'll sleep for ten or twelve hours, and that's all they need to stay fresh. Their sense of smell and hearing are about wolf or lion standard, but their sight is fantastic (when not covered by the protective second eyelid) and they can see farther than an earth bird of prey. They're aren't very good fighters, relying on small fangs and narrow but razor-sharp teeth and their rather dull claws. They just run away from anything trying to kill them or, this one is more common, they'll run circles around their enemy until it either slinks off in confusion or gets dizzy and they can strike quickly. In hunting, it's easy - a band of Hresahrs will form, and then they'll run the prey to death.
