A race of Gnome-like cat-people.

Physical Description[edit]

Gnomalkin are a race very similar to gnomes, being around the same size and shape, but they possess cat-like ears instead of the Gnomes' pointed ones and cat-like tails sprout from their backside. Gnomalkin also posses long claws at the end of their fingers and toes. They tend to have lighter skin tones. Their hair tends to be straight and dark brown, auburn, or black in color. The fur covering their ears and tails tend to be orange, white, gray, or black in color. Their eyes tend to be a pale blue or pale green.


The Gnomalkin race is a recent appearance, and they originate from a group of Gnomes who began to worship the Cat Goddess Fleufin. These Gnomes who began to worship Fleufin were transformed into the first Gnomalkin.


Gnomalkin societies are matriarchal and known to most as being the most hospitable places they've ever been.

Gnomalkin Names[edit]

Gnomalkin, like their Gnome cousins, love names, and most Gnomalkin have at least 3. Most Gnomalkin have 2 or more given names and 1 clan name. Most Gnomalkin names are combinations of completely random syllables that simply sounded nice to the Gnomalkin's parents or the Gnomalkin themself, although there are some who take on the names of ancestors. Gnomalkin tend to be partial to names that end in the letters "ey", and their Clan names are always the name of the breed of cat the family most resembles.

Male: Lonney, Sevey, Fragey, Ikey

Female: Zanney, Breeley, Elley, Carey

Clan: Aegean, Abyssinian, Korat, Munchkin
