Shistavanens, or colloquially known as Wolfmen, are bipedal canine humanoids. Their bodies are covered with thick, warm fur ranging from white to black, with the exception of their faces, where the fur is short and velvety. Their five fingered hands end in short, sharp claws. They are either tailless or have short, shaggy tails about half a foot long. Unlike most bipeds, Shistavanens are digitigrade, walking on their toes as it were (Think a similar leg structure to an earth dog, but with bigger feet to compensate for being bipedal).
Shistavanens hail from the Uvena system and while they do not encourage trade and tourism on their world, they do grudgingly allow offworlders to train on their planet.
Shistavanens are excellent hunters and they can track prey in crowded urban streets and in natural environments. This natural hunting ablity combined with their ability to see in almost complete darkness makes them sought after soldiers, hunters and guards... even some Imperials have been known to have Shistavanen guards.
Night Vision: Shistavanens have excellent night vision and can see in darkness with no penalty.
