The Alsurans are a race of furry mammalian anthropoids, about 1.5 meters tall. They inhabit their homeworld of Alsur and several colonies. Alsurans differed in facial appearance and body structure with canine, feline, and equine features. They were known for being master politicians and spies, craving intrigue and subterfuge. Immediate Alsuran families were organized into large clans, which were the more important social unit in Alsuran society; family and clan loyalty were equally important as power accumulation. Clan association was denoted as the last component in an Alsuran name.
