Tabaxi are feline humanoids, up to 7 feet tall, slender, agile, and with a keen sense of smell. Their tail and retractable claws make them good climbers, swimmers, and runners. Stealth and surprise attacks are one of their main fortes.

They live in clans, led by elders, which don’t socialize with each other. Whether they live in temporary habitats, or even deep in a jungle, they quickly and effectively adapt to new locations. One thing each and every Tabaxi detests is any kind of trade.

The Tabaxi have poetic and descriptive names, though they also have a shorter nickname which is often used by friends. Names like Radiant River (Radiant), Drifting Cloud (Cloud), and Storm on the Horizon (Storm) are some of the examples.
