Caitians are a felinoid race with distinct cat-like features. As their homeworld, Cait, has been a Federation member as early as 2286, Caitians are known to serve both in Starfleet and on the Federation Council. They're known throughout their quadrant for their intelligence, curiosity, loyalty and love of beauty. Caitians' interlocking personal and clan relationships can create large family groups that sometimes number in the hundreds.
From May 3rd 2012, Caitians have been given several options for hair styles.
Caitians are bipedal, with height comparable to humans, have tails that assist their balance and large eyes with excellent night vision. Their skin is covered with soft fur coat, and their felinoid ears can pick up frequencies that most humanoids are unable to detect. Caitians are also remarkable jumpers; able to leap roughly twice as high as an average human.
The provided colors of fur players can select from for their Caitian character vary from reddish through golden and brown to black, and different shades of gray from almost white to black. Palette for eyes allows shades of golden, brown, green and blue eyes.
Caitians are related to the Ferasans, the other race of feline humanoids with more aggressive personalities due to genetic modification.
Players who purchase playable Ferasans also unlocks new cosmetic options for any Federation Caitian character on their account.
