I dwell in the womb of Faur'ridar'ru. The frozen crags are my perch, the jagged stone my fangs. I am a Nasyk, I am a hunter.
Nasyk are one of the hardiest races of Sazashi. The Verin created Nasyk with the sole purpose of surviving on the harsh mainland of Jhoutai. Engineered with metabolic control and superb immune systems, they survived and grew where most other races would succumb to slow and painful deaths.
While Nasyk are no more or less vicious than any of the other Sazashi, they are stricken with a fearsome reputation as cannibals and murderers. This comes from their sordid and bloody history dating all the way back to their inception. This social curse only was reinforced by the perpetuation of the Malisyk cult, an oft wicked and unnerving sect which believed that by consuming the flesh of their foes they will gain their strength.
Nasyk are most often described as Calculating, Introverted, Intuitive, Detached, Rugged, and Apathetic.
Seeing a Naysk pop up from the snow tunnels was a scary sight. You'd only see the tops of their ears. They knew you were there.
You just never knew how many were watching.
EyesNasyk eye colors range golds, reds, and browns. Their irises have black freckling, a dark ring around the edge, and is more vividly colored towards the center.

FurNasyk fur is variegations of light and dark patterned together in streaks and spots, with slight cream highlights. When they have an undercoat it's thick..
Dense • Fluffy • Camouflaging
TailNasyk have a long, skinny tail with a large brush fan at the tip they often use to hide their tracks.
ClawsNasyk claws are needle shaped and straight, with a slight curve at the tip. They are retractable.
Trait : Sazashi
Nasyk claws are sharp along their inner edge, and have a shape similar to a suture needle with a straight length and a curve inwards near the end. They are retractable. Nasyk have more pronounced fangs than most Sazashi which grants the Nasyk a wicked smile.
Nasyk were created to survive in harsh conditions. With an optimized musculature and digestive track, they can survive on less food for longer durations. Their muscles produce very little lactic acid, allowing them to travel great distances.
Nasyk are able to control the activity of their own brains. They can completely shut themselves down to instant REM states, or keep themselves alert enough to respond to threats while still getting benefits of sleep.
Where others wither, I will thrive.
SurvivalistNasyk take pleasure in finding situations which test their abilities to survive. Bitter cold, unsettled jungles, and dangerous ruins are perfect situations for a Nasyk. Many Nasyk will join parties just for the thrill of surviving.
If they aren't surviving, they are finding reasons to better themselves at their pursuits. They may take on unnecessary risks or challenges to prove to themselves that they can accomplish them.
