Species: Fyxi(es)

This is not a complete species write-up.

fyxi(es)

very early civilization, "uplifted" by well-meaning humans (Lightworkers? probably.), still very feral-territorial-tribal in behavior and culture otherwise, still wide-eyed predators

because of human influence, have begun walking upright, but their bodies aren't really adapted for it, so they're awkward and clumsy and slow; when running, they default to all fours; about 5' on average when standing upright

feline-bodied, long-bodied, with longer and stronger hind legs than forelegs (helps the walking upright, admittedly, and also makes them stellar jumpers), massive feathery wings (contributes to the smallness of their forelimbs, which they hold folded close to their chests when standing or flying), thick strong longer tail (very flexible, helps with balance while standing upright, helps steer while flying); hind paws are a cross between feline paws and talons with large, unretractable claws; forepaws are a cross between feline paws and hands, with elongated (but still thick) toes and retractable claws

head is startlingly humanoid, including a hair-like mane; face is feline-humanoid, with the suggestion of a muzzle and a more feline nose and a prominent cleft in the upper lip; teeth are feline; eyes are large, slanted, almond-shaped, and iridescent like an oil sheen + split pupil; ears are very mobile, long, sweeping and slender, pointed at the tip, very expressive; no whiskers or eyebrows

soft, thick fur, varies by climate/race; ethnic diversity includes fur patterns (all earth tones, blondes and reds and browns and greys, some white and black) and facial features and general size/build, but not a huge variance in bodyshape

hermaphroditic race, but reproduces sexually; has a barely-visible penile sheath and external testes, plus small-when-not-nursing breasts (two pairs, on the chest not stomach), all covered in fur; hormone balance adjusts depending on those around the individual, so there's always a good balance of bearers ("females") and providers ("males") (terms refer to breeding, not social structure); culture has no sense of gender outside of the function of sex
