A race made of pride, they are the embodiment of their god, Sarus. From the largest Irazi to the smallest of Maus, size doesn't equate to a Shirazi's will and determination. From hardy warriors to powerful casters and amazing merchants, they are a race of monopoly and strive to be the very best. These Felidae based people, originating from the brutal desert surrounded kingdom of Jomor'kri, are unique to their world. Surely they'll let you know it.

The smallest and more cat like of the Shirazi. These felines stand about 1 to 2 feet tall and appear to look like house cats standing on their back legs. Mau are highly intelligent and many tend to be tricksters. It is said that you should always check a cat’s front paws for opposable thumbs before letting them into your home and adopting them because they may very well be a Mau! These people can fall from great heights and land without sound or injury.
The offspring of a Shirazi and a human. Exiles and bastards usually, these interesting people are not commonly accepted by other Shirazi and are more likely to be taken in by other races. Bastets are born with a mixture of both features but never fully appear like either of their parents and when fully grown, these people tend to be extremely nimble and agile with cat like behaviors.
The largest and most renowned of the race, the Irazi are the king cats. Broad and masculine, males usually stand about 6 to 7 feet tall and tend to be proud and arrogant warriors. Females don’t stand much shorter at 6 feet tall. Their body types vary dependant on the person, though many are slender and pack a bit of muscle. They may resemble any big cat, from Tigers, Lions, to Cheetahs and Leopards. The Irazi are the most xenophobic and racist of the Shirazi.
