Malbar and Beyond
Catfolk are a rare race within the world of Tradicia. Their numbers were once great but have dwindled due to wide dispersion and their low ability to interbreed with other races. Those that still remain are often traveling merchants, explorers, adventurers, or bards.
There are a few small tribes that exist within various kingdoms. They often run trading outposts in vast expanses of wilderness and run caravans between cities. The kingdoms they live in often see them as a necessary nuisance.
The catfolk have a long-standing grudge against the Tengu who, of the animalistic races, was able to make a name for themselves and populate, even though they are still on the fringes of society. The catfolk made the mistake of dispersing too far while the Tengu flocked together and kept up their numbers.
