Chestnut: The Horse Who Is Not Brown
Also known as the ‘Cat Folk’.
The Hazra are quite child-like in their innocence. They do nothing in the interest of personal gain and are loyal almost to a fault. They are extremely faithful and once their loyalty is given, you have it until death. They are Chaotic by nature, only by their feline bias and because their sense of justice does not follow that of the rest of the world. They are unafraid to visit retribution upon those they feel have wronged someone – no matter if it is an enemy or friend.
Hazra are as mixed a group in appearance as actual cats; they generally have pointed ears with tufts and huge, slanted eyes. Some have markings on their skin with short, almost unnoticable fur and some have long fur. They all have whiskers and pointed canines. They are also all flexible and prone to sleeping in bizarre positions. Their nails grow long and sharp and they have unusually tough pads on their hands and feet.
