Umari — is a race similar to the Zelirians, the key differences are their fluffy tails and differently shaped ears. Their distinguishing feature however, is their unimaginable physical strength; the Salangans wanted servants with traits close to their own ancestors, wanting to see them as “living monuments” to their former size and power.
Alas, at the time of the Exodus the Umari were not yet completed – primitive animals, too stupid to perceive even the most common of commands. They were abandoned as the Salangans decided that most likely these big “cats” would soon die out (the Salangans were never good-natured or empathetic with representatives of other species). The Umari managed to survive, however.
Keeping their numbers small, they founded their own state – the Theocracy of Umari – and live honoring Salangan as their god who they believe will one day return to them. Like the Zelirians, they do not see creatures with a strong psionic field, which makes Humkey invisible to them. As they are the original race, they saved the genetic ability to perceive the structured speech of other beings.
