Half Lupin (Canidae)

Physical Description: The canidae are cousins to the Lupin. They take on a humanoid appearance with bestial features such as having a tail of various length, ears, etc. While the Lupin take on a bestial appearance altogether, the canidae possess far less fur. Depending on their heritage, tiny details such as ear shape or type can be affected by the parent race; Canidae possess stocky, but agile bodies. The canidae typically have an average muscle tone, not possessing too much bulk, but not necessarily being completely lean either; although, both variations have been known to occur in isolated circles.

Their heights are typically average as well, possessing the same traits as their muscle tone. You can see some very tall canidae, and also some rather short ones as well - runt of the litters so-to-speak. It is not uncommon, also, for eye and hair color variants to be the same as those possessed by common dogs, but, for the most part, canidae are very humanoid in appearance, possessing normal hues of eye and hair color as any other race.

Society: In society, Canidae are known for their fortitude and cunning making them ideal hunters and gatherers for markets or isolated contractors. The Canidae are popular for their loyalty and work ethic; rarely aggressive, most Canidae are good-natured and have come to be accepted as one of the friendlier races in Xilrin.

Relations: As friendly as the Canidae may be, there are always exceptions to the rules and aggressive behavior is sometimes found in the more primitive Canidae. In normal circumstance, Canidae are generally indifferent concerning the affairs and matters of other races keeping to their own business. The downside to the Canidae is, of course, its pride, resulting, sometimes, in a very stubborn Canidae. A Canidae provides its loyalty on its own terms and rarely accepts forceful treatment. Poor treatment of any Canidae may prove deadly as Canidae have a tendency of hunting in packs. Provoking one may soon become hundreds. Canidae don't care for cities and prefer settlements no larger than a small town.

Alignment and Religion: A deeply spiritual people, Canidae usually worship one deity to the exclusion of others. The general alignments of the Canidae vary from tribe to tribe and their traditions.

Adventurers: The region a canidae is raised up in will typically determine what kind of profession they find themselves in; for example, a canidae raised in the woods may grow up becoming a ranger, or perhaps one who has lived within city walls its entire life may join the ranks of a knighthood to protect its homeland. Due to this fact, canidae are rarely stereotyped to a single type of profession, and can fill just about any ranks that are required of them.
