The native inhabitants of Chu-Raa.
Having to adapt to a thin atmosphere and gravity half as strong as Earth, the natives, who call themselves Nok’Chu-Raa, or the Children of the World when translated to Standard, are, despite their alien origins, somewhat humanoid in appearance. Despite the lower gravity on their world, the Nok'Chu-Raa are lumbering but strong and intelligent beings. Their language is the simplest to understand so human observers have picked up most of the history of their system from the Nok’Chu-Raa.
They stand nearly half as tall as a standard terrestrial human, having thick coats of black fur all over their short stout bodies. They have two thick legs like those of a terrestrial elephant, a thick torso, two powerful furry arms with four prehensile digits, and a large head. It has a large snout similar to a pig but longer like that of an elephant. Their two large black eyes are capable of seeing over longer distances than humans.
A carnivorous species, most of the food that the Nok’Chu-Raa eat comes from the prey they hunt through the planetary forests, while the water comes from freshwater lakes, rivers and streams. They do eat some of the oceanic animals but not often as there is only so much ocean.
The Nok'Chu-Raa are a relatively warlike species, being carnivorous. They were more than willing to lend troops and technology to the Confederady during many of their wars. However what really makes this species stand out is their artistic ability in creating paintings and sculptures which have inspired many interplanetary art movements.
