The Kalasi (singular and plural) are a diminutive lion-like bipedal species from Zivilgial.
Kalasi are very short in comparison to most species, averaging at 4'9" and seldom surpassing 5'0". They are naturally stocky and possess long, prehensile ears which are commonly used in body language. A small, dark nose sits at the end of a short muzzle, the latter being full of sharp teeth. Their hands and feet are paw-like and possess retractable talons. A thick mane resides on the head and neck, capable of being raised and lowered at will. They do not have tails.
The average Kalasi voice is remarkably deep and rough for individuals of their stature. They use an extensive amount of body language, often flaring their nostrils and flicking and curling their ears while talking.
Kalasi pheromones tend to irritate Sirukti noses, causing an itching sensation.
