Species: Shugaray(s)

Name - Shugaray(s)

Original - Karan, a large sienna-furred male. No one knows if he still lives.

Temperament - Playful and generally lazy, peaceful cats, Shugarays are very affectionate to not only their kindred but other Lavanians. They like hunting, but won't kill for no reason; their play is competitive but in no way violent. They do, however, believe very strongly in the 'live and let live' philosophy, and have saved more than a few creature's lives based off that. Shugarays are very laid-back, amiable, difficult to provoke, and generally content with their lives.

Culture - Shugarays live in prides that can get very large if resources are sufficient. Some mate for life and others don't; this decision is usually a mutual agreement between mates, and rarely will two mates part ways with anger held in their hearts. Shugaray litters consist of one to three cubs, which are grown in a few years; adults can live up to 80 years. They're very genial towards other races and rarely judge other species for past deeds, but Nigias have a very low opinion of Shugarays, thinking the brown cats foolish and slow-witted… which they most certainly are not.

Habitat - While Shugarays can survive in any moderate climate, they greatly prefer open spaces and plains; lacking these, they like sparse deciduous forests that experience all four seasons. They don't need as much water as many species, so watering holes need only be within a few days' lope, giving Shugarays the ability to amass huge amounts of land.

Height at Shoulder - 7-9 feet

Physical Description - Shugarays only have size to distinguish them as felines. Long-legged, they're muscular but have a big cat's typical looseness of fur that allows them to simply seem big rather than buff. Shugarays have huge paws with curving, retractable claws and a long, thick tail; their pelts are thick and short, and their fangs are longer than normal, but other than that, there isn't much to say.

Coloration - Shugarays don't have much variation in fur color, unfortunately: bright reddish-brown to deep, earthy brown is their full range. Eyes are nearly always golden, though they can be green or brown, and their claws tend to be black.


Name - Shugaray(s)

Size - 6-9 feet at the shoulder.

Physical Description - Shugarays are basically large felines. They have big paws, long, thick tails, broad faces, and long fangs. Shugarays are among the Original Nine to be Created on Lavana and are respected among most. (Some few consider them slow-witted and childish.) Their claws are retractable, their manner amiable, and their coats thick, soft, and glossy. There's not too much to say about them, physically.

Coloration - Ranges from a bright, red-brown cinnamon to a dark, deep, earthy brown. Not much variety. Eyes tend to be gold, but can also be green, brown, or blue.

Temperament - Playful and generally lazy, peaceful cats, Shugarays live in prides and are very affectionate. They like hunting, but won't kill for no reason. Their play is competitive but in no way violent, and their groups can get very large, if the resources are sufficient. They do, however, believe very strongly in the 'live and let live' philosophy, and have saved more than a few creature's lives based off that.
