(KET-tek)

Kettek are feline humanoids ubiquitous across Ancerra. Endlessly curious, occasionally distracted, kettek are well known for their adventurous and fickle nature. Kettek rarely stay in one place for more than a few years as boredom frequently drives their urge for new sights, sounds, and places. Thus, they find many positions on ships and caravans around the world and their natural grace and athleticism makes them excellent scouts, performers, and sailors. Hailing from lush forests and snowy taigas alike, the kettek have adapted well to many environments and often have distinct features from their homeland. Northern kettek tend to be bulkier with spotted furs of white, grey, and black while southern kettek are lean with striped or splotched coats of orange, brown, and black.

Kettek Culture

Kettek are wanderers by nature, so their culture tends to forgo monuments and grand cities for oral histories, stories, songs, and poetry. More than any other lineage, kettek absorb the cultures from the places they reside and carry those traditions and habits with them when they move on. Thus, kettek fashion and art tends to be direct copies of multiple styles and functions.
