Ferasans are a felinoid species that originated on the planet Ferasa, and are closely related to Caitians. They are bipedal, have tails that assist their balance, extended maxillary canine teeth and large eyes with excellent night vision. Their skin is covered with a soft fur coat, and their felinoid ears can pick up frequencies that most humanoids are unable to detect. Some Ferasans have telepathic abilities.
The Ferasans and Caitians were once a unified species, but an extensive genetic engineering program has greatly modified the Ferasan genome. Ferasans consider themselves to be superior to Caitians, and most relish the chance to prove that superiority in combat. Ferasan society is dominated by clans of inter-related family groups who band together for defense and conquest. Loyalty is highly prized among Ferasans, although betrayals are common. The greatest honor a Ferasan can give to a clanmate or Captain is to remain faithful through adversity.
The Ferasans similar in appearance to the Caitians, with a few distinguishing features. They are saber-toothed and some have eyebrows similar to Pakleds. Unlike Caitians, some Ferasans have telepathic abilities.
Players who purchase playable Ferasans also unlock new cosmetic options for any Federation Caitian character on their account if they have also purchased playable Caitians.
