Species: Trahe(s)

Name - Trahe(s) [pronounced 'TRAH-hay(z)']

Size - Males range from 18-25 feet at the shoulder, while females range from 15-20 feet.

Physical Description - Trahes are thick-muscled, quadrupedal Athians. First thing you notice about them is their size and the stocky body. They have shaggy, baby-soft fur about a foot long. Their heads are squared, heavy, and quite broad. Their eyes are deep-set and large, somewhat owlish. They have massively strong jaws that can crunch through steel with ease. Their teeth are curved, thick, and sharp, firmly embedded in their jaw for a carnivorous lifestyle. Their necks are muscular and short(ish), with slightly longer fur creating a light ruff. Their shoulders are massive, and their forelegs are long, thick, and large, ending in HUGE paws (I mean huge compared to their own size here!) with thick, curved talon-claws. Their torso is barrel-shaped and thick; their back is slightly arched, with their weight of the long forelegs and heavy hindlegs. Their hindlegs are massive heavy things, ending in even larger paws and claws that can do some serious damage. Their rump extends into a lithe, muscular tail, which ends in a scythe-like blade on males, and a simple tuft on females. All in all, Trahes are big, impressive beasts capable of taking on nearly anything in a fight… and yet, they can be extremely gentle.

Coloration - Almost always some shade of grey, rarely dark. Occasionally, a soft cream or golden will be seen. There's never any gradient in the color, simply solid. Claws tend to be black, blades match their fur color with a metallic sheen. Eyes can be gold, silver, or brown, the latter being very rare.

Temperament - Trahes tend towards being blunt, honest, and friendly. Despite stereotypes, they are intelligent, and often more gentle and compassionate than their fighting skills might suggest. They're social, staking out loose territories in family-groups. They're friendly and generally speak their mind, and aren't really the best listeners unless intrigued. They also have firm opinions and sometimes will take an instant dislike to a creature. Though they aren't usually the type to go out on a violent rampage, Trahes don't shy away from a good fight, though they rarely kill unless forced.

Invented By~ Manata

Height at Shoulder~ females: 12 to 18 ft. males: 15 to 24 ft.

Colors~ Almost always some shade of grey, they can sometimes be pale tan or golden. Very rare to have those, though.

Temperment~ Trahe are usually blunt and honest, and loyal to a fault. In the Dark Wars they were soldiers. They're friendly and generally speak their mind, and aren't really the best listeners. They also have firm opinions and sometimes have an instant dislike to the occasional creature. If you're one, don't be offended, it's them, not you.

Description~ In one word: massive. First thing you notice about them is their size and the thick body. They have long shag fur, around a foot long, and soft soft fur. Their heads are square and heavy, much like Earth's T-rex head, and is quite broad. Their eyes are deep-set and large, somewhat owlish. They have strong, massive jaws that can crunch through steel with ease. Their teeth are curved, thick, and sharp, firmly embedded in their jaw for the Trahe's carnivorous lifestyle. Their necks are muscular and short(ish), with slightly longer fur creating a light ruff. Their shoulders are massive and tense, with shorter fur. Their forelegs are long, thick, and large, ending in HUGE paws (I mean huge compared to their own size here!) with thick curved talon-claws. Their middle is barrel-shaped and thick, with a rib-wall. (Rib-wall is basically a wall of bone with slits in it instead of sticks of bone wrapped around vital organs like a rib cage.) Their back is slightly arched, with their weight of the long forelegs and heavy hindlegs. Their hindlegs are massive heavy things, ending in even larger paws and claws (lol, I rhyme!) that can do some serious damage. Their rump extends into a lithe, muscular tail, which ends in a scythe-like blade. Females do not have a tail blade. Males are a good bit bigger than females. (Don't take offense at that girls!) All in all, they are huge strong creatures.
