Chadra-Fan are short humanoids covered from head to foot in fur, usually no more than one meter tall. They evolved from small, arboreal rodents on the watery planet Chad.
Chadra-Fan senses are much more acute than those of Humans. Their metabolism is amazingly fast, allowing them to work almost constantly. They only sleep in two hour naps during the day. Because of their metabolism, the average Chadra-Fan matures by age fifteen and rarely lives more than forty years. They have two hearts, but can survive only about three days on one.
The two sexes of Chadra-Fan are indistinguishable to other species, though they can readily tell the difference using their powerful sense of smell. If a male and a female Chadra-Fan are interested in one another, they release special pheromones that relay their feelings. Chadra-Fan also have involuntary pheromones that conveyed information about their family line and create an aura of attractiveness. Other voluntary pheromones often convey a Chadra-Fan’s emotions. Chadra-Fan can create more complex messages using their pheromones, though the pheromones when mixed sometimes cause confusion.
Chadra-Fan culture is greatly affected by the tendency of hurricanes and tsunamis to wash away their bayou homes. They have an instinctive fear of drowning, and regard very few things as permanent, seeking only to enjoy themselves in the moment. Many Chadra-Fan who leave their home world go to arid planets, in order to escape any chance of drowning.
Chadra-Fan love to tinker with mechanical devices, often disassembling and reassembling them into something completely different. Chadra-Fan living in the greater galaxy sometimes work in industrial research, by creating unique devices which engineers of other species with more conventional talents attempt to duplicate. Their inventions were sometimes considered collectible and pieces of art. Many Chadra-Fan creations are unique or individually hand-built. They have difficulty with the concept of personal property, and will often modify others’ possessions without permission. Such modifications may or may not be seen by the owners as improvements.
It is uncontroversial for Chadra-Fan to move about naked, and many wear no clothes at all in public without drawing the attention of bystanders or disturbing them. However, clothed Chadra-Fan are just as common throughout history, with many of them wearing robes ranging from simple to elaborate.
Chadra-Fan are extremely gregarious, and almost impossible to offend. They are friendly and outgoing to the point that they often do not even realize when they are being treated badly. Even when enslaved they tend to think of the whole thing as a big adventure. When they do realize they have been ill-used, they are quick to forgive. Their need for companionship is so strong that when forced into solitary isolation they will often fall into depression and die within weeks.
