Name (Singular & Plural): Raskvel
Sexes: Male & Female
Height: Average heights fall between 3’ 6” and 4’ 3”.
Weight: Somewhere between 40 and 60 pounds.
Hair: None. They have feathery plumage instead, often light blue, red, or black.
Skin: Scaled skin of tan, dark red, or blue.
Eyes: Two vertically slit, reptilian-like eyes.
Ears: Raskvel have two ears that rival Earth’s rabbit species for length and size. Their ears are extraordinarily floppy and typically hang down alongside or behind their head. The positioning and posturing of one’s ears is considered similar to how humans style their hair. The scales covering these ears are typically a brighter, or different hue, than the rest of their body scales.
Tongues: Lengthy, purple organs that can extend five to seven inches out of their mouths. Their tongues are much thicker than humans’.
Tails: Raskvel have one long reptilian tail that sways rapidly when its owner is excited or happy. They do not have enough control over it for fine manipulation, but they are more than capable of guiding it into a suitable open orifice when the time calls for it. Additional Appearance Notes: Scales cover raskvel bodies from head to toe, though the scales on their bellies, chests, and groins are far more soft and supple than elsewhere. Their hips are unusually wide for their size, allowing them to pass large eggs and accept large insertions with ease. Up top, raskvel are nothing to write home about. B-cups are considered large for their species, and anything bigger than that is viewed as freakishly big. Males have narrower hips than females, though they are still wider, by far, than a human of proportionate size.
Males have retractable, pointed purple penises that hide inside genital slits most of the time. Their gonads are kept in pouches that stay so taut to their belly that they appear almost spherical in spite of their three gonads. The female vaginas are purplish in hue, with small inner lips, larger outer lips, and clits on the top and the bottom.
Raskvel are a peaceful people, but coexisting on a planet with limited resources and highly competitive gabilani has forced them into enough fights to know how to handle themselves. They prefer to use nonlethal weapons: stun guns, dart guns, sexual distractions, and aphrodisiacs. They will often flee when close to defeat, though when faced with sexual defeat they will often stay, sometimes even giving up early rather than risk further injury.
Raskvel build villages under the surface of the planet to better conceal themselves from their enemies, only emerging to scavenge for technology, food, and trade. They can survive well in any temperate clime, though their reptilian blood causes them issue when faced with extreme cold or heat.
Raskvel are consummate breeders, one of the few races able to compete with gabilani when it comes to sheer reproductive enthusiasm. They will breed with almost anything at any time, so long as it has a pleasant disposition and a compatible-looking penis or vagina. Most would consider them sluts, but to them, it is a way to survive a planet rife with industrial accidents and deadly foes. They love to mate with creatures bigger than themselves, believing it will give the young the strength to survive longer on their harsh home planet.
Shortly before birth, they will be immobilized by the size of their incubating bellies, but birth occurs with such rapidity after that that there is little danger from this. They will lay anywhere from three to ten large eggs in an act that they describe as “hellishly pleasurable” before slumbering to recover. The eggs will hatch within a month, each containing a young raskvel if fertilized. The eggs do not need to be incubated. Once laid they are often left to fend for themselves, as the Raskvel are quite lacking in maternal instincts. The offspring are inquisitive, knowledge-hungry creatures that soak up information like sponges and mature enough to work and talk within a month or two. Full adulthood and sexual maturity do not come for at least two years.
Raskvel are often hostile toward gabilani but will rarely throw the first attack. They hate rust monsters with a passion, due to that race’s propensity for devouring their recently repaired machinery.
Raskvel are known as skilled mechanics but less gifted inventors. They tend to be obsessed with fixing rather than creating, a trait that makes gabilani prize them as pets in spite of their racial squabbles. Needless to say, the Raskvel do not enjoy being held in that state.
