4. Lifespan

Canids have two stages of life. The first stage, puppy or pup, last from birth until 14. During this stage the young canid grows and develops it’s many skills needed for survival. The young canid stays at home during this stage. The canid also learns hunting and tracking skills during this stage.

The final stage, adulthood, last from 15 until death. To be accepted as an adult, the canid must prove his or her worth as an adult by hunting down a cathar. It is also during this stage that a canid may find a spouse. According to canid custom, the male must win the love of his hopeful mate by showing off and proving to the sought after mate that he is worth her attention. Death comes naturally and expectantly to the canid.

5. Appearance

Canids have a human stance, standing on two legs and have human reproductive organs and human-like features. However canids are covered from head to toe in fur. Some canids have single color fur while some have multicolored fur. Some have long fur while some have short fur. Some have long tails while some have bobbed tails. Also with the fur they have human hair on their heads, usually in red, brown, blond, or black… of any length. They have dog ears, some pointed, some droopy. Canids have dog-shaped faces, dog-shaped eyes that are blue or gray. They also have dog noses.

6. Living Habitat

Canids can be found in many various locations trying to fit in and make a home for themselves. They also enjoy the plains. Canids are constantly traveling.

7. Food & Sleeping Requirements

They require one meal a day, and must sleep for one cycle, whether it be day or night, lest they tire out (-5 endurance per missed hour). The sleep cycle must come after seven awake cycles.

8. Culture

Canids, similar to Cathar and the anthropoids, are very tribal. They are also a nomadic people, migrating across the great plains or the deep forests of the world. They are polytheistic in belief, worshiping nature and their ancestors.

Canids do not use surnames. Instead they will refer to the tribe that they are part of, for example, Grim of the Jagged Tooth. First names are often very beast-like.

9. Racial Relations

Canids have actually had very little interaction with most races partly because most of them live in the more remote areas of the world. Thus canids generally do not have a per race relationship, it is more of a per individual or per tribe relationship with their relationships being based on need, desire, or circumstance. The few races that almost always drive them to violence are the cathar and the liontaur.
