The Orthii are put simply cat-people. Not in the sense they are all very fond of pets but in the sense they were evolved from them as humans evolved from apes.

In appearance Orthii are a bipedal species, and average about 6 foot in height with a deceptively slender built. Their bodies are covered in a light soft coat of fur and most (male and female) also have thicker mane like growths of fur on top of theirs which resemble style human hair and develops at puberty. As with in cats, fur colour is determined not by genetics but by environmental factors, so fur patterns are not entirely hereditary. An Orthii’s fur can be many colours, with the most common being various shades of brown, all though yellow, red and blue fur is also possible, albeit in the last case usually in so dark a shade it approximates black. In some cases Orthii can have spots or stripes or mottled patterns in their fur. Their eyes have diamond shaped pupils and a coloured iris taking up the rest of the visible portions of the eyes. Their feet and cats are four fingered (including an opposable digit on the hand) and resemble paws with soft gripping pads but with an extra joint and greater dexterity to enable tool use.

Similarly to humans, and at odds with most other know human species, Orthii females develop constantly swollen breasts at puberty although to a lesser extent than a human would. Contrary to popular opinion, that Orthii are essentially identical to terrestrial cats only anthromorphised, Orthii’s possess only two nipples.

The life span of a healthly Orthii with full medical care is slightly shorter than that of a modern human being approximately 90 years of age. Orthii go into puberty between 10-13 years of age and come to full physical maturity at around 17-19 years of age.

There are at least 2 races of Orthii: Ground based predators, heavy boned and thick muscled, this race is evolved from land predators that chased down animals on plains and grasslands. They are fast and stronger than their build would suggest to a human. They are based around quick movement on relatively even terrain. Their tails were not of great import to them and evolution has caused them to disappear as needless and their claws are evolved toward dealing damage to prey.

2<sup>nd</sup> race: Evolved from agile forest dwelling cats, this race has much lighter bones and springier muscles, they have better sense of their surrounds and are more flexible than the first race as they were previously ambush predators that droped from above or leapt out of cover on their opponents and dispatched them with a quick bite. Their claws were based around climbing holds rather than fighting. They’re tails were essential for balance and were retained to this day.

Of course in the modern space ages, the differences of their origins count for less and the difference between the two races is shortening as they meet as a mid point. Visual identification of an Orthii’s race is not a definite identification of the individual’s abilities any longer but among the Orthii such stereotyping is still common by the media and the average man.
