Vorcarian

Most adult Vorcarians range from 1.6 to 2,0 meters in height, but few regularly stand up straight. Instead they walk in a constant hunch, giving them a better position to detect scents on the ground. Vorcarians range in weight 60 to 80 kilograms; females usually weigh a little less than males. Their facial structure sports a slight muzzle reminiscent of a canine, and their eyes are blood red. Vorcarians have fairly dark skin tones, running the gamut from tan to dark brown. Stubble-like fur covers much of their body, though real hair grows on top of their head. They wear their hair long, and most never bother to clean or groom it. As suits their predatory history, the Vorcarians have canine teeth and vestigial claws on their hands and feet. The average Vorcarian life span is 40 cycles, due to their violent lifestyle, but they can live up to 60 cycles.

Background: Vorcarians are a paradox among the races of the Uncharted Territories. While they do not possess the technology to build sophisticated weapons or their own spacecraft, they travel widely and most go heavily armed. Other species have found trading with the Vorcarians to be mutually beneficial, which also gives the Vorcarians access to technologies far beyond their scientific limitations.

Vorcarians evolved from canine pack hunters and remain strictly carnivorous. Vorcarian apparel consists mostly of treated hides taken from their prey. They follow a tribal system, reflective of an animal pack, which rewards bravery and strength while weeding out the weak and infirm.

Personality: Because they speak with a growl in their voice, Vorcarians always sound angry. They are devoted to their family and pack. Strangely pragmatic, they are quick to anger but rarely hold a grudge for long. They bestow trust slowly, but keep friends for life.
