Play a Neko if you want...
- To be a character who is very energetic and nosy
- To have the stealth and agility of a cat
- To be a member of a race that favors the bard, druid, ranger, rogue, and sorcerer classes.
Neko stand about as tall as typical humans do, with gender rarely making a difference in size. They tend to weigh as much as elves. They have typical human skin-tones, and their eyes tend to be either green or amber. The most distinctive aspect of the Neko, is their ears and tails. Their ears are much like cats, i.e. high atop the head, and shaped like said cats ears as well. The tail tends to jump around, even more so if the Neko is excited or nervous. The fur on the ears and tail is the same color as the hair of the Neko. Hair color can be of any color.
Playing an Neko
Neko are very curious, as a whole, and are quite enjoyable. They tend to irritate people with their playfulness, but most people find it difficult to stay mad at them for long. Neko get along well with elves, mainly because the elves have a habit of being very aloof, much like the Neko. They get along with halflings and gnomes due to the fact that halflings are happy, full of energy and a love for life, and the gnomes due to the same reasons, and the fact that the gnomes tend to have shiny objects around, which Neko are attracted to. They find dwarves to be too focused and half-orcs to be too cumbersome. They like the fact that humans admire them and consider them exotic.
Neko are generally unaligned. They tend to have little respect for laws, and don’t care about the conflict between good and evil, which they think could be solved if the leaders rubbed each other’s bellies.
