Satyrs are a variant of Orks that originate from the Mediterranean region, but have since spread all over the world. Satyrs vary greatly from the basic phenotypic characteristics of homo sapiens robustus - see below for more details.
Assaults on Satyrs on the rise? Recent evidence shows that Satyrs are being targeted by attacks and there is a suggestion that this may be linked to Alamos 20k. Motives, other than racism, of course, are yet unknown. Warnings are being spread and some high-profile members of this rare metavariant have already begun contracting private security to tackle the threat.
Slightly more muscular bulk than Orks. Satyrs, like the creatures of legend, have caprine leg and foot structures, complete with cloven hooves. This gives them an interesting gait while providing exceptional running speed and enhanced jumping capabilities.
In most cases, their higher-than-average intelligence and less aggressive-looking faces allow Satyrs to adapt better to society at large than their primary subspecies. They integrate well with society as a whole.
A satyr's face is elongated at the jaw, has a more slender nose, smaller lower canines and a greater extension of the aural helix. Satyr horns are usually short and sweep back over the head, but a wide variety of variations have been documented.
Geographic Origin and Distribution
All over the world, despite originating from the Mediterranean.
Slightly higher than humans.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Civilization and Culture
For the most part, Satyrs are not attracted to their own metavariant, but rather they seek partners from the range of metahumanity. Often, then, Satyrs have multiple children, some of which express as the metatype of the other parent.
Culture and Cultural Heritage
Satyrs do not possess a culture of their own but adapt well to the surrounding cultures.
Interspecies Relations and Assumptions
Satyrs are seen as free-spirited and artistic, although in reality they have a full spread of personality types.
Homo Sapiens Robustus
Longer than Orks, but unclear. Potentially 50-60 years.
