Lombaxes are medium humanoids. They are around three and a half feet at the shortest and five feet at the tallest for adults. They feature large eyes, feline noses, large ears without visible openings, and a tail with a lion-like tuft at the end. They are fully covered in fur, sans their noses. This fur can come in anywhere between pale cream to medium brown, with lighter stomachs, and darker stripes appearing on the ears, tails, and backs of all but the darkest individuals. They have large, triangular feet with three toes per foot, and five fingers on each hand.
The lombaxes were a race of technologically advanced beings who engineered some of the most powerful devices in the universe, including a tool they used to seal away a tyrannical race in another dimension. They took pity on a baby survivor of that race, which soon proved to be their downfall. The baby grew and seemingly surpassed all of their expectations, concocting technological advancements light years ahead of their own. Alister, a lombax leader, was enthusiastic to get his hands on such powerful technology to forward his own plans for lombax domination of the dimension. The adopted creature instead used his powerful machines to destroy the lombax world entirely, driving them out of the dimension into exile forever. They now live in other dimensions, a disgraced bunch.
Lombaxes live in familial groups led by a Patriarch, who takes many wives and bears children. Females are expected to contribute to society and mate with the males of other families, while males besides the Patriarch are expected to rear children born of the Patriarch, who are actually their own younger brothers. Lombaxes have a history of building fantastic technology, favoring metal, rubber, oil, electricity, and magic as components. Males are usually quieter and subdued, females are generally more involved in society and craftsmanship. Odd males will occasionally show more interest in their surroundings, compelling them to interact with other races, possibly leaving their home behind for good. Monogamy is uncommon, few males outside the Patriarch are allowed a mate, and females believe bearing children for their Patriarch is secondary to their job or role in society. Males are about 1/7 as common as females. A male becomes a Patriarch if he owns land and has mated with at least 3 females. Females make up the governing bodies.
Lombaxes Patriarchs pass their name unto the females with whom they mate. Males have a single name. Females have their given name and the name of the patriarch with whom they have mated. Female names always end in an "A" and male names always end in a consonant.
