Aslan are a vaguely felinoid race. Their superficial resemblance to Terran lions resulted in their being referred to by the name of a character from C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia, a name that has stuck due to the difficulty most humanoids have pronouncing their actual species name.

Aslan are large felinoid bipeds standing about 2 meters tall and massing approximately 100 kilos. Distinctive features include a large mane of hair on the head and shoulders, digitigrade lower limbs and a sharp dewclaw, used in ritual combat. Females outnumber the males by 3 to 1 and are responsible for most administrative and technical matters, the males being devoted to military matters. Clans and families are headed by males, but run by the females.

Aslan are not members of the Federation and are extremely rare in Starfleet. They may be encountered along the rimward edge of the Federation, most often as mercenaries or merchants.
