Felis are a race that live in the kingdom of Kishar.[1]

History

The Felis were the first race to found a city. Their scholars began their first era with its founding because they believed the new city would lead them into a new age of knowledge and understanding that would elevate them above the other races.[2]

Geographic Distribution

Felis are based out of their kingdom, but other Felis have been sighted in Nessa[3] and in the wilds between Sunsgrove and Aisling.[4]

Culture

The Felis are known for their inherent superiority complex.[5] They consider themselves the most cultured and progressive of the races,[6] and believe their capital city to be the "focal point of logic and reason."[7]

Calendar

The Felis developed a calendar system that was eventually adopted by all but the most traditional of the other races. The method uses eras to group years. The first Era began with their capital city's foundation, and was titled the Era of Reason.[8] There is at least one other Era known as the Civilized Era[9]

Music

The Felis prefer instruments that are hand-crafted and complex.[10][11]

Religion

The Felis religion requires that the Felis learn everything about the world before they achieve enlightenment.[12] Felis scholars spend many long hours studying in the Spire of Gair. The work is very demanding for even the most religious scholars.[13] These scholars are well-traveled and have compiled a library of historical records and first-hand accounts from all over the Four Kingdoms.[14] The scholars take their work seriously because they are aware of how easily truth can be manufactured and twisted.[15]

Due to their religion, being unable to access the Uncharted Lands is not laziness on their part, and a genuine source of frustration.[16] The Felis have tried to map it, but every expedition has failed for various reasons. So many have tried and failed, it’s been accepted by all races except the Felis that those lands will remain uncharted. On maps is usually represented by a fading line suggesting a cloud or shadow that obscures the landscape.[17]

Slave Labor

The Felis are involved in the slave trade,[18] and use slave labor to complete their great works.[19]

Technology

The Felis are currently engaged in an intellectual rivalry and arms race with the Vulpin.[20]

The Felis are known for their complex locks.[21][22] It is one area where they are winning the arms race against the Vulpin, and to crack their latest locks, a thief needs picks designed for those locks.[23]

They developed concrete at some point.[24]
