Kig-Yar are an avian/reptilian species with excellent senses of sight, smell and hearing. They hail from the world Eayn, but most Kig-Yar in the THDF Galaxy are pirates serving Lord of the STARS and Madam Celestial Saber, making the Guardians of Eden, and live on the asteroid New Eden, which is where they get their name.
Many Kig-Yar are pirates or mercenaries, though there are some exceptions. All Kig-Yar in the THDF Galaxy were transported through a Slipspace Rift Incident. The Sharp-Yar are related to the Kig-Yar, although relations between them are hostile.
Kig-Yar have very keen senses of sight, hearing, and smell, allowing them to track down and kill prey from very far away. Their body is similar in build to a bird's, which would make them avian, but they lack wings, and some sub-species appear more reptilian. However, the Kig-Yar's skeletal structure is light, allowing them to be agile, and quick. They can run much faster than any human.
Kig-Yar have clawed hands and feet, as well as sharp teeth, which are used for eating their prey. However, they are physically weaker than most sentient lifeforms. Thus, they must rely on their speed to evade predators.
Males have quills on some areas of the body, most likely used to attract mates. Females have thick plates in place of quills to protect them from passionate mating.
Kig-Yar culture is relatively violent. Kig-Yar are known for being mercenaries, and almost all are members of pirate clans, most notably Lord of the STARS'. Their keen senses make Kig-Yar excellent snipers, assasins, scouts and thieves.
However, culture can vary depending on the pirate clan they are born into.
The Kig-Yar have fairly advanced technolgy.
The Kig-Yar have a large array of powerful naval ships, largely because of their pirating nature. After stealing ships from the enemy, the ship is drafted into the clan's fleet, and any technologies are stolen, allowing the Kig-Yar to advance technologically. Kig-Yar have developed robots such as the Front Line Fighter, which allow them to engage their enemies without losing any actual lives.
