The Kiakh'iee are domesticated mammalian omnivore/gatherers, used by the S'mrii for the care of their eggs and infant young.
Physiologically, they share the same hexapodal body structure as the S'mrii, and when full grown are between half and two-thirds the size of an adult S'mrii.
Physiology and ecology
The fur coloration varies between white through golden-brown to greyish black (very rare). There are some twenty recognized subspecies or "breeds" in existence.
Diet and trophics
Omnivore, primarily vegetarian.
History and background
The Kiakh'iee are remarkable for in that they appear to be nearly sentient. As far as the IISS's Sophontology Division can tell, this was triggered by a process of selective breeding practiced by the S'mrii.
The discovery was made in 1059 and nearly caused civil war. The IISS tried to obtain full protected status for the Kiakh'iee. Agreement was finally reached on a guardianship arrangement, whereby individual Kiakh'iee would be classed as minors under the supervision of a S'mrii (or, less commonly, a human).
Kiakh'iee are small, furry and insufferably cute. They are also smarter than the IISS thinks - some individuals are almost as intelligent as the average human. They communicate with their “owners” in short phrases in a "cute animal" voice, though the smarter ones are excellent mimics, and enjoy using this ability to cause mischief.
