Felinia – This trade world is the home of the cat folk, they are organized in tribes with individual tribe names like Aslan, Cait, Kzint, Kilrathi, Lyran, Felini, Tigra, Humbassa and Thundharia. Their civil rights and social interactions and customs are inclined toward clan and family honor. They accept everything and everyone that is able to pay the right price for what is selling but dislike imprudent people that intrudes in their personal, family or tribal lives. Traders come and go to Felinia different small cities to trade with them furs, jewels and clothing that are sold of planet as luxury items. Many cat folk had brought starships themselves to be the one who sells their tribe’s treasures off world. Cat folk cities are a beautiful place to see, not a building above five floors, all filed with music, colors and extravaganza. Cat folk try to use the least technology they can on their daily lives. They have a special love for cooking, sewing, and making jewels by hand. This planet is part of the Frontier Planets of the Galactic Concord.
Cat folks are very individual people who don’t believe in marriage or any other type of lifelong commitment. At a very young age, catfolk couples from different clans find themselves have a brief ceremony and they stay together until they procreate and their children are born. After that each partner chooses half of the kittens and part to raise them in their own clan. Even when they respect and love each other, the two sides of the family are apart sometimes without seen each other again. Elders take care of the children and the young catfolk continue their travels and adventures. The young ones use terms like “father” and “mother” as a recognition of who is their predecessor but normally their emotions are toward the elders who raised them.
Cat Folk Expressions:
The term for people you love and consider close family is “nia’ash” which literally translates as “closer than my fur”. They have other terms like “carving you a scar”, that roughly means “I’m going to wound you with artist pleasure” and is usually used as a treat to someone that is getting on your nerves. A person that doesn’t understand his social position and is trying to go over another catfolk of power is “raising his short hair”. A cat folk that prefers his cat form over his humanoid form is called a “mufrow”. A cat folk that has forgotten to fight with his claws is called a “clipper”. A person that is trying to win the favor of another is “licking another’s mane”. The lifespan of a cat folk is expressed in “deads” from which the catfolk is entitled to seven or nine depending on how lucky and how many dangers he finds. So a young catfolk with three deads is considered “ahead on life” or “looking for many deads”. Catfolks don’t place themselves in the path of danger to achieve this status, is just a way of stating his luck to other catfolk.
