The Athar are descended from six limbed carnivore chasers that originally adapted to a pack existence in the badlands and plains of A'a'suni/Pact (Dagudashaag 2227) The forerunners of the Athar hunted within clearly marked territories, preying on large herbivores as they followed traditional migration routes.
Physiology and environment
The Athar are homeothermic, trilaterally symmetrical quadrupeds. They have two pairs of powerful rear legs ending in a wide padded foot, and a single pair of forearms ending in dexterous hands. The head mounts the sensory organs, and sits atop a long neck. A broad flat tail is used to aid balance. Their bodies are covered in a thick leathery hide that acts both as insulation and protection. They mass around 200 kg, and average five meters from the point of the snout to the tip of the tail.
