"I love a good war – the more dead bodies, the heavier my pockets." - Shanni Therras, Merchant of Fortune
Khajit are a mysterious and fascinating race who live fairly untouched in their southwest desert nation of Khalifa. Historically very few races came into contact with the Khajit, however, over the years, the Khajit's innate feline curiosity about the outside world grew and they are now common sights in the ports and merchant districts of large cities across Terra.
Often peddling 'rare and exquisite' artifacts, Khajit are charismatic and persuasive traders who utilize the mystique of their people to sell snake oil and then leave before the truth is discovered. They were despised by both sides of the Great Wars for their practice of stripping the dead of their goods after a battle and selling the spoils back at double the price. This has led to a distrust amongst some races and Khalifa's infamous foreign policy of neutrality has not helped sway the common folk.
Khalifa is home to three independent cities, each with their own goals and system of governance. To make a major decision for the nation, 2/3 leaders must agree, however, constant politicking and feuding halts most progress. This independent, disagreeable streak manifests itself in each Khajit who take pride in trivial shows of rebellion. Overall, Khajit are a playful race of tricksters who enjoy puzzles and riddles and take pride in outwitting anyone they come across.
