The ithani likely evolved from a ruminating mammal.
The ithani resemble bipedal elk or horned dogs. They have long, shaggy hair on their heads and usually curly fur across their body. Two antlers grow out of their head, varying in length and complexity depending upon their race. Short horns are straight and only 6-8" long. Long horns can be nearly 1-1.5’ long and may have some protrusions. Ithani shed their antlers and regrow them every year or so.
Their fur and their hair can rarely be starkly different colors, but are often simply darker or lighter shades of each other. While their coat and hair tend to be in the same color range as humans, over the course of a month, their body will darken or lighten depending on their surroundings. This is a common adaptation for fauna on their homeworld of Adapa as creatures adapt to changing seasons and surrounding flora.
They are ruminating herbivores. The ithani eat a leafy diet of fruits, nuts, grasses and the like. They lack powerful stomach acids to digest this food however, and so they are prone to chewing for long periods, passing it through their stomach and then chewing whatever doesn’t get digested the first pass again.
Female ithani birth between 1-2 live offspring (rarely 3) after a 10 month gestation.
Males tend to be heavier and taller than females. Males usually have longer horns than females of their race.
Ithani are considered to be dirty, rude, but highly religious people. Their blunt way of speaking is considered to be a virtue, rather than to conceal or hide one’s emotions. Likewise, hygiene is not a virtue among the ithani, since washing away physical dirt separates one from the mud which created them.
Women tend to congregate around their mothers, while men are expected to leave their mother’s side and join a group of men.
