Ecrivain : "An index I made of a species from my setting"
Alright, so here is a little biological and cultural index that I made of an alien species from my science fiction setting. They are called the Ghahiirrim, and they are from the Earth-sized exo-Jovian moon Taahhin. They have both mammalian and reptilian physical traits and resemble bipedal lions if lions had thick, scaly skin, caracal-Esque tufts on their ears, and fat-storing lizard-like tails with a pair of extremely sharp blades on the end. They are adapted to desert living and have nictitating membranes in their eyes to protect them from the sand.
Their culture is a clan/tribe based one and values martial prowess, though artists and scholars are also highly respected. Wars between tribes were common until a warrior-priest named Uulshorai conquered and united them with the help of advanced technology that his tribe bought from a disreputable human corporation. He and his successors are known as the "Yooh'dah'mahr'iiq" by their own people, but they adopt the title of "Khagan" when interacting with humans, hence the name of their government, the "United Taahhinian Khaganate". I will include more info if you guys want.
