Attack Method: Duyami use their claws to pounce and slash at the soft spots of the enemy and often use their teeth, but will stalk beforehand if able to, also using other weapons if onhand.
Duyami do not believe in any kind of god but accept the fact that other people do with grace.
Duyami are sleek and limber, able to move fluidly and silently, from the days when they hunted for their food. Spotted and covered in short beige and brown fur, duyami have two lines under their eyes that look like tear tracks. Their eyes are often sharp and amber colored, and their mouths are lined with sharp teeth. Duyami stand upright on their hind legs, and run on all fours only when necessary. Their paws have sharp retractable claws, with black pads. From the middle of their foreheads down to the base of their long and thin tail is a crest of feathers. Feathers also line their bottom legs and arms and in some cases may grow over the shoulders of a duyami. The feathers are often neutral or cool colored, such as blues, browns or dark greens, and serve no purpose other than for cosmetics. It is unsure why duyami have these feathers, but some members of the species claim they were used for days when they lived in trees.
Duyami are very friendly and charming and approach people with respect. If this respect is not returned, a duyami will often ignore or treat the person the same way they felt they were treated. Self-satisfied and happy, it’s not easy to upset a duyami with their vast amount of patience, but if one would to ever find a way to, it’s unlikely their life will continue for very long. They try their best to help with everything, often feeling as if they aren’t doing everything the could be doing.
Duyami take very good care of their young, and make sure the area is safe for them before giving birth. They keep watch over them until they are of age, and usually end up with five to eight cubs. It has been noted duyami can make chirping calls to their young, as well as coughs, bleats, hisses, snarls, growls and purrs to signal to their children.
Duyami started out as a hunting and solitary species on their planet with basic tools and speech. When space discovered them, technology influenced them enough to have them evolve in such a way to make their feathers useless. To make up for this unknowing loss, duyami learned to adapt their hunting methods to more paying ways, or more specifically, they became assassins. Species found out about their stalking and hunting skills and duyami are often hired for killing off people no one wants to deal with anymore. When it was also discovered their great ability to take care of their young, they were greatly received as caretakers of alien children, due to a shortage of caretakers. Sadly not many people cared for any other aspects of their culture and therefore very little of it is heard of.
• Duyami make great tour guides for their cheeriness and undying patience, able to put up with other people’s great stupidity.
