The Gate-Stones of Lunestriel
Bothans are a race of the Lomarii, meaning “Lunar-Born” in Ancient Lunerii.
The Bothans are a race of furry humanoids, with the mixed characteristics of canine, feline, and equine features. They stand slightly shorter than humans at 4’10" to 5’6" feet in height and weigh 110 to 180 pounds on average. They are covered in fur, which is typically a variation of brown; tan and red hues are also common. Rarely, they will have black or golden fur. Their eyes are usually brown, green, or gold. They have high pointed ears, much like an elf. Their face has a mixture of horse and dog-like characteristics. The average Bothan lifespan is approximately 90 years.
Bothans are known for their love of intrigue. They prefer political and economic success over martial prowess. Bothan culture is guided by principals which suggest that power and influence are paramount for a successful and fruitful life. For this reason, a bothan will generally put their own interests above the well-being of others. The result is that many of the other races see them as untrustworthy.
Bothan society organizes itself into clans, which are comprised of large families. These clans in turn select a representative to the Bothan council, which is the ruling form of government. Experts at politicking, Bothans have a charismatic demeanor and are skilled at negotiating.
