After the arrival of the Conqueror, Rheyn Destoiya in Tradestandard 4625, males left the planet by the thousands, seeking jobs and adventure. The Praetorian Guard is now almost entirely made up of Kin males, and is an elite squad assembled to enforce the Conqueror's will. They are fierce warriors and can rip apart the enemy with their bare hands -- or their teeth.

Of the sixteen clans on Felidae, the Ruh clan owns more land than any of the other three combined. The Ruh Rainforest is primitive and almost completely unexplored. It occupies nearly one-sixth of the planet.
A miniscule portion is being harvested for medical research by the Chiasmii, with full permission of the Ruh clan. Other clans are not pleased with this, and skirmishes between bordering clans have increased within the last few years.
The Kin population is feline in appearance. They have cat-like irises, sharp teeth, and long incisors (fangs). Deadly claws hide beneath human-looking nails. They have downy furskin all over their bodies, with a texture like velvet, or a plush toy.
Males have few if any rights, and are kept in seclusion once married. Due to dwindling birth rates, it is required for warrior females to have more than one mate. Female breeders may be added to the family if no children are born within a few years. The Pride Council oversees marriage contracts and breeding arrangements.
A typical "breeder house" is usually located away from the main dwelling. Horns are placed on the roof of the main house are to ward off evil spirits, as is any gate before the front door. The Kin are largely a rural, feudal society with loyalties to clan leaders called tzesars.
The Kin language is based on aspects of the tradestandard Etymis, proving (as some believe) their joint heritage with humans. Click to download a Kin glossary.
