Catfolk, Variant (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Slender, flexible & built for hunting, the Tasmer/Catfolk of Vorel Edar has settled down all over the world.
A female of the Tasmer would typically be a slim frame with a natural disposition to be very light, as the feline blood within the race is closer to leopard than tiger. This does not mean they're exclusively this way, the Tasmer vary as much as can be expected in a humanoid society of all shades & sizes. They can & will train themselves like any intelligent race.
A male of the Tasmer would typically be a slender figure from the very beginning. Like other humanoid races they also have the natural disposition to be bigger than their female counterpart, but not by much as they're still a feline at heart.
Both genders sport cat-like ears on the side/top of their head. Hair rather than fur on their head. A very light & thin transparent coat of fur across their body, can vary in degree based on which part (Feline/non-feline) of them is dominant. A roughly meter long tail covered in fur, can vary in degree based on region. They appear quite human when looked upon, but their hands & feet sport retractable cat claws rather than nails, but no tread-pillows. Legs and arms are shaped like a human's, but are trained to be more flexible more readily.
"The actual origin of the Tasmer within the boundries of Vorel Edar is oddly enough not attributed to the Feywild. The stories actually tell of an unusual union between an Aasimar & a Tabaxi that through a small miracle had children, the entities watching over the Aasimar saw these as cute little buggars, so they pleaded to the higher angels to grant these creatures life. After this, Tasmer became more and more of a race as it seems they weren't born dead like they previously did, after this event, the mortality rate dropped massively... That's how the story goes. Anyhoo, where's me bear?" - Koren Treesplinter, Bard of the Bear
As they owe their names to both Tabaxi & Aasimar originally (Later in history; humans, elves & half-elves), Tasmer can effectively be seen with any name from either three races, but also typically with their clan's initial(s) in front of, or behind their name. Tasmer rarely sport surnames.
Being that the combination of blood they have is very versatile, they have very few issues with any terrain (based on personality & area of upbringing). The Tasmer have in general made very good homes in any terrain or city imaginable, and as such has grown to be a rather large race.
Amongst a typical Tasmer society there's little difference from a typical human settlement, except the Tasmer often has a couple, a couple consisting of a matriach & a patriach. These two are often a wise elderly couple that has lived their life with dignity, and as such when one or both of the previous couple dies, there will be a morning ceremony, followed by a council of elders during which an election is made of who should lead the clutch.
Living a life that one can be proud of is a large part of what it is to be a Tasmer. They're often sought by humans for both friendly & malignant purposes, and as such often get visitors from many of the human continents. Being an intelligent race they began taking fees, which in turn grew many of their settlements & further led to their growth. Tasmer & humans live side by side very easily, just as Tasmer and Tabaxi often has an easy time living together despite it being somewhat rarer.

Too curious. If a curious situation occurs that the Tasmer find personal interest in, often time they cannot help themselves to at the very least touch it. Or wonder how it sounds when they shove it onto the floor, often shattering it.
Jumpy. A sincere lack of trust has been brewing amongst the Tasmer for years, which resulted in generation after generation to stay away from humanoids & increasingly steer away from them. To this end they have tight security and a fee for merely walking into their villages. If a humanoid is caught within their borders, they often lose a limb, and occasionally, depending on the crime, something more important to them. This mistrust, is something all Tasmer carries with them.
Celestial Blessing. By the blessings of the angels and the Aasimar blood, you can cast "Dancing Lights" at will.

(The hit dice is taken from your pool, and will be expended, just like rolling for hp during short rest.)

Cityslicker. Contrary to the other two prominent tribes, city cats have lost most of their unique features, and thus have over time become more human than tabaxi, and as such look the most human of them all, & due to no need for fur alterations, they vary greatly. You do not have pads.
