Tamaraneans are golden-skinned humanoid people who descended from a feline-like race. They have the power to convert ultraviolet radiation into energy for flight with the females producing a distinctive contrail that seems to flow from their hair. Tamaraneans have nine stomachs and are known to consume food that most Humans would find unappealing. They also seem to have the ability to learn new languages instantly by means of "lip contact" (kissing). As they mature, young Tamaraneans experience a phase of "transformation", in which they may undergo temporary physiological oddities and enter a chrysalis stage. The Cironielian Chrysalis Eater is a natural predator of the species during this stage. A few gained the ability to fire "starbolts", beams of energy, as a result of experiments performed by the Psions.
Tamaraneans traditionally worship the goddess X'Hal. They are ruled by their emotions and were renowned as excellent warriors. Tamaraneans believe in the value of friendship. Friendship is honored in the Blorthog festival in which friends exchange gifts. They fear the rekmas, the point at which friends begin drifting apart.
