Senses

Hearing

Ears are located high and towards the rear, on either side of their heads. They can move each ear individually to listen forward or behind; or to track the movement of a target. They have exceptional hearing, but only hear normal audio ranges.

Vision

During normal light pupils look feline. But in periods of low light, the pupil widens to allow more light, and their vision shifts towards the ultraviolet range. This gives them excellent night vision. Owing to their ancestry as predatory animals the Qaktoro and Tuoro do not see the color green, they perceive this color as shades of gray. the Tula and Qakla do see the color green.

Smell

Members of the clan retain a sensitive sense of smell. Their sense of smell is twice as sensitive as a human, and they can usually identify the components of a scent if they recognize them.

Taste

The Qaktoro sense of taste is actually rather weak. For this reason much of what they eat, and drink for pleasure tends to have strong flavors. Tula, Tuoro, and Qakla sense of taste is closer to human. They prefer their foods to be less seasoned than their cousins, but they can eat any Qaktoro meal.

Diet

Qaktoro

Are omnivorous. But their normal diet tends to be heavy with meats with vegetables and fruit added for flavoring. The normal preference when it comes to meat ranges from raw to medium rare. A Qaktoro will only eat meat that is overcooked for survival. Offering a guest overcooked meat is a grave insult. The only thing worse is offering a Qaktoro nothing but vegetables; this is an insult strong enough to warrant a duel.

Tula

Are omnivorous. But their normal diet tends to be a balance between meats, vegetables and fruits. A Tula enjoys a wider range of how their meat is prepared. Among Tula etiquette is for the host to ask how their guest wants their meat. Tula are also perfectly comfortable eating a meal of just vegetables. But to maintain their health they must have meat as a part of their diet.

Qakla

Are omnivorous. But their normal diet tends to be heavy with meats with vegetables and fruit added for flavoring. The normal preference when it comes to meat ranges from raw to medium rare.

Tuoro

Are omnivorous. But their normal diet tends to be a balance between meats, vegetables and fruits. A Tuoro enjoy a wider range of how their meat is prepared.

Movement

  • Walking: Move with a feline grace.
  • Swimming: Can swim and most learn basic swimming. Due to a very low body fat level they are non-buoyant by nature, floating can only be done with assistance devices.
  • Zero-Gravity:
    • Qaktoro are uncomfortable with low gravity it affects their sense of balance badly. So when possible they try to avoid it. Or they use curatives to counter the dizziness.
    • Tula and Tuoro are comfortable with low or zero gravity.
    • Qakla are less adversely affected by low or zero gravity than Qaktoro. They still require curatives for long term exposure.
