Species: Nihik(s)

Name~ Nihik(s)

Home World~ Genetically engineered on Aibla, though they claim Lavana as their home.

Height~ Tall buggers, Nihik females can range from 5.5 to 6.5 feet, with males going from 6 to 7.5 feet.

Coloration~ We're… not… sure. ^_^;; However, there have been pale earth tones (cream, tan, ivory, white, silver, grey, golden, pastel green), as well as blues and teals, possibly with a grey undertone. Their short fur tends to be one color, with longer fur a darker or brighter shade of the same hue. Their eyes are jewel-toned, claws metallic in hue, and blades usually the a slightly different shade of their fur-color.

Temperament~ Taking after their genetic donors, Kihins, Nihiks are fiesty and aggressive, strong-willed and highly intelligent. They're very skilled with technology and make top-notch pilots, mechanics, engineers, and the like; they're also good scientists in general, having had explicit training from the Jhee themselves. Though they love a good challenge and a good fight, Nihiks are well aware of their own mortality and rarely kill unnecessarily. But, as in all sentient species, personalities vary with sometimes frightening results.

Description~ Lanky bipeds, Nihiks are leanly-muscled and greatly prefer speed and agility over brute strength. (And cunning. They like that too. To beat body with mind is thought to be the greatest victory possible.) Just so this needn't be repeated throughout this descrip, Nihiks are long — long muzzle, long neck, long legs, torso, tail, claws, fingers, fur — everything. The Nihik head is raptorine, earless, with long fangs and otherwise wolfish teeth and a small, sharp, rhino-esque horn set between wide nostrils. Though their spine is held at a slight angle and they walk digitigrade with legs slightly bent, neutralizing some leg- and torso-length, Nihiks are still quite tall. Their arms are human in proportion and general anatomy, though their hands possess three fingers and a thumb twice as long as those of a humans, tipped in slender, razor-sharp, retractable claws. Their torsos are lean and narrow-chested with slim waists; if you were to shave a Nihik (Sun forbid! O,O), he'd look almost gaunt and quite bony. Nihik hind legs are more muscular than any other part of their body excepting their tail, able to propel them at great speeds. Their hindpaws were genetically simplified, now simply broad feline-ish paws with slightly elongated digits and ursine, unretractable claws. Their tails are insanely long, often ten+ feet, and as such can be used for balance should a Nihik want to run with spine horizontal. The tails differ with gender; a heavy, down-hanging, scythe-shaped blade of a foot in length is within six inches of the tailtip, anchored by a knot of muscle and cartilage. Males have a smaller version (five inches long) of this blade about four inches behind (towards the base of the tail) the first scytheblade; females have two such smaller blades. Nihiks are glossily- and short-furred for the most part, though around their neck, down their spine, on their lower stomachs down to the underside of the base of their tail, on the latter third of their tail, and at their limb-joints is long, silky fur. In Kihins, this fur hides assets, and the same goes for Nihiks; the long fur hides their tailblades from all but the most careful visual scrutiny. There is a row, running from the base of their long neck to halfway down their tail, of slender, sharp-tipped spines; these spikes protect the spinal cord from injury and also display emotion, able to bristle vertically or to flatten horizontally. The aforementioned long fur hides these as well. The last things to note of Nihiks are senses and abilities: eyesight and hearing are superb, with sense of smell a close second, almost tied with sensitive touch; Nihiks, like pointed out previously, are very fast, very agile, very flexible beasts. They're also able to shed their longer fur almost instantaneously when needed, to either get out of a sticky situation or to 'show off'.


Name - Nihik

Home World and Habitat - Genetically engineered on Aibla by the Jhee, but they claim Lavana as a home world. Nihiks are rangy beasts able to survive in almost any climate, though they dislike intense cold and prefer sparse forests and open fields to thick jungle or barren mountains.

Height at Shoulder - Nihik females can range from 5.5 to 6.5 feet, with males going from 6 to 7.5 feet.

Coloration - Pale earth tones (cream, tan, ivory, white, silver, grey, golden, pastel green), as well as blues and teals, possibly with a grey undertone. Their short fur tends to be one color, with longer fur a darker or brighter shade of the same hue. Their eyes are jewel-toned, claws metallic in hue, and blades usually the a slightly different shade of their fur-color.

Technology - Basically… whatever they can get their paws on. Jhee, Olashi, Adochi… if they can get it (usually not stealing), they can learn to use it. O,x They like Jhee technology the best though.
