A felinoid species from an Earth-like planet. Yzarran society is very feudal and class-based, ruled by a hereditary monarch. Society is divided into familial clans with a strict (though sometimes fluid) heirarchy. Although conflict among the clans is common, the Yzarrans favor intrigue and politics to outright conflict. However, violence is slightly more common at the lowest rungs of the hierarhy. From highest to lowest, the hierarchy is the royal family, the high nobility, the low nobility, the citizen class (made up of Yzarrans who do not possess noble blood but have still managed to gain wealth and some measure of influence), and the laborer class. Most Yzarrans are arrogant toward other species and view their culture as superior to all others.
The Haruans made first contact with the Yzarrans in GY 4133 when Worldship Tucana entered their home system and was met by a Yzarran exploration vessel. Not having achieved Jumpgate technology themselves, the Yzarrans were quite interested in the technology. After a brief negotiation, the Jumpgate was deployed as planned after the Haruans provided the Yzarrans with a fleet of vessels to defend against any potential threat that could come through the Jumpgate. The Yzarrans are a member species of the Galactic Union.
Yzarrans are bipeds with a similar skeletomuscular structure as compared to humans. Average height and weight for both genders is 1.8 meters and 75 kg. The typical lifespan is 100 galactic years. Reproduction is through internal fertilization and gestation, usually resulting in a single live birth (though twins are not uncommon). Despite the fact that the Yzarran reproductive system is almost identical to humans, the two species are genetically incompatible.
Yzarran technology is generally a little behind the Haruan cutting edge but they are quick to adopt new discoveries with the exception of cybernetics. Yzarrans view cybernetic implants as abomoniations and are generally disdainful of individuals with obvious cybernetic modifications. Any Yzarran that had any cybernetic implant would be outcast from Yzarran society.
