female nekojin (purebred) concept art by Nekogami
Known as an easy-going and happy race. When angered their fury is uncontrollable yet easily dispelled. Nekojin tend to hold grudges for a while.
In truth, nekojin personalities range from individual to individual as much as any other race. Wherever you find a culture of nekojin, you will likely find a group of people who take pride in themselves and their work, as beloved creations of Nekogami. Because of this belief, there is not just a small amount truth to the perception that nekojin hold long grudges, should their fur be rubbed the wrong way on the wrong issue. Also, individuals are known to take the pride too far to step over the bounds of patriotism to nationalism, over the bounds of pride in one's racial origins and into racism.
Nekojin raised or living in countries which are predominantly inhabited by other races, who will not have the same cultural influences as those growing up around their own race, will be less predictable.
Nekojin tend to be judged by other races depending, amongst other things, on the other's exposure to races not his or her own, and especially 'fluffy races.' The latter is important to show that, for instance, a dog person does not act like a beast. Common stereotypes compare nekojin to cats, which is frustrating to various degrees to nekojin on the receiving end of such treatment.
There are "hairless" nekojin races; not actually hairless, but their hair is very thin and sparse, showing the skin underneath which is often colored and patterned as a fur coat would be (in spots, stripes, so on). These nekojin are almost universally treated as lepers and outcasts, even amongst other races, given the appearance that their fur is falling and their skin is blotched with disease. These nekojin often form their own towns or find themselves in Kalshana or Doma, two of the more welcoming countries for their kind. Not a few have turned to pirating, where their looks become a boon in their new-found trade.
