Alien Species

The Togorians are a race of bipedal felinoids from Togoria, and are distinguished by their long, sinewy limbs and well-muscled bodies. They are equally comfortable moving through a forest or running across an open plain. Their hands and feet are studded with heavy claws, which are retractable on the hands, and which provide evidence of their tree-climbing ancestors. When a Togorian meets a friend or potential ally, the claws are retracted into the hands as a sign of peace.

They regularly feed on bist and etelo herds, but are the favored prey of the reptilian liphons. The Togorians soon realized that they shared this trait with the mosgoths, and they formed a relationship which provided mutual protection as well as friendship. The Togorian society is matriarchal, with the males and females only seeing each other for a few days each year. The males spend their days wandering the plains and hunting for food, while the females stay in the cities and tend to their businesses.

The Togorians have limited technology, including a solar technology maintained by the females, although they are fond of high-tech devices. The Togorian society is presided over by the Margrave, a position held by a male of a certain family line. However, the Margrave is rarely the public leader many believe him to be. Instead, the Margrave's closest female relative is chosen to live in the capital of Caross and interact with other governmental leaders.
