Anatomy & Morphology
Origin of MorphologyBorn from the blood of Cerûnin, he moulded them to resemble afrotheria. While they're an anthropomorphic race, they have many similarities with the diverse mammals.
AnatomyThey are anthropomorphic, with two arms, two digitigrade legs and an endoskeleton. Their forms are slightly hunched since they have narrow shoulders and deep ribcages, pushing their shoulders forward. They also have a fairly broad base, giving them a lower centre of gravity. Some are covered in a short coat of hair and they only have three functional toes and fingers, with a fourth defunct digit.
Sexual DimorphismMales or often larger and stronger than females; however, females are more flexible and have stronger immune systems since they bear children.
Genetics and Reproduction
They mate as most mammals do, with a gestation period of 10 months.
Growth Rate & Stages
They reach adolescence within 6 to 8 years and adulthood in 14 to 16.
Dietary Needs and Habits
They are hypocarnivores.
Their heads are roughly human-shaped; however, their heads protrude more, with their head base being more to the back of their skulls. Their eyes are on the edge of their heads and their mouths appear low on their heads, with noses centred between the eyes and mouth. Otherwise, most of their features can vary greatly, following the appearances of afrotheria species.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Their base senses are superior to that of other races.
Civilization and Culture
First names generally have little bases, besides following the phonetics of their language Strittati. However, last names are based on area of origin.
Major Language Groups and Dialects
OriginLike all Cernunnos, the Afrothenos were born from the blood of the Ðíos Cerûnin. He then formed them into the beings they currently are.
Continued...When the Cernunnos were created and set on Kitmuri, they all headed to the sub-continent bridge known as Yeoreth; however, the Afrothenos found themselves going further south to Setath, settling in a land the called The End.
Interspecies Relations and Assumptions
They are extremely protective of their own, making them closed off to most outsiders and creating a certain amount of distrust.
