Brief Summary

Kyacaotl (race nickname 'kya') are a canine race standing around 1-2 meters in height. They wear masks to conceal their faces as a cultural and religious tradition. Those without masks are seen as outcasts or slaves.


The kyacoatl were discovered by the krakun, using geroo species as a contact point. At the time of first contact (being the first time the geroo discretely landed on the planet), kyacoatl had technology such as electricity, radio communication, and television available, as well as wireless phones. Basic knowledge of radiation and dangers thereof are known publicly. Solar panels are in production enough to rig for domestic use.

Kyacoatl canonically used 'phone' in the story 'Castaway' (in Tales of Hayven Celestia anthology 2019)
