Nekos are mischievous, crafty creatures, and are never afraid to face a challenge or competition. due to their social natures, Nekos can seamlessly integrate themselves into any culture and can be found almost anywhere. Their personalities are like snowflakes, with no two Nekos being exactly enough.

Physical Description[edit]

Nekos are humanoids with cat-like ears, long tails, some even have whiskers or fur on their torsos and legs. they are generally of a smaller build, typically being slim and lightweight. Their eye and hair color can vary widely. generally, male Nekos won't grow beards, and some believe that they are incapable of doing so.


Nekos evolved from a more cat-like humanoid species, although today they have adapted a more human form with only a few differences setting them apart from humans or elves


Nekos can be easily found in most societies, however, they will usually be isolated from non-neko, with their own hierarchy including their own leader. Sometimes Neko will form small independent settlements, with trained fighting forces
