STRENGTHS: He is a wonderful companion for anyone working with Shadow Work, especially those who are finding it more difficult. He pushes his companion to accept what will not change, but also to make way for the changes they can make. He has a unique connection to the past, especially when speaking on ancestry, familial roots, and past lives. He can help enhance your work in figuring out who you once were, though also with the acceptance that things are different now to make way for your future.
PERSONALITY: He is easily described as quirky. He lives mostly as a hermit, so he isn’t terribly used to people or interaction. However, he does get excited about historical topics and discussion about family lines and past lives. He often gets sheepish after talking about said topics for a while, apologizing for going off on tangents.
APPEARANCE: He is a long, lean tabby cat in orange and cream colors with thick, long fur. He has distinct striping and bright green eyes. He has a ‘twisted’ face, an appearance caused by his jaw growing the wrong way. He has difficulty closing his mouth and opening one eye; the deformity also causes a sort of ‘slurring’ pattern to his speech. Like all Ludean Ketari, he doesn’t wear clothing. However, you may see him occasionally wear a headpiece to train his jaw to close properly at times while he runs.

Eriodan, Male Ludean Ketari
Keta is a realm where what we know as Cats reign supreme. They are incredibly intelligent beings, their technology superior to ours, though they seem to be in an aesthetic rut of Steampunk in their world. They take several different castes in society, their heirarchy quite successful in that there is very little crime amongst their lower classes and between the different levels of society. Ketari are four-legged cats, though their dew claws take the place of thumbs when they stand on their back paws to do anything, their paws fully functional as our human hands when they extend their claws to do any work or activities that require a grip. They are far faster on four paws, their bipedal abilities often abandoned in favor of getting where they need to get quickly.
Even in Keta, all things return to what they once were. The Ludean Ketari are the masters of Funereal Rites. They acknowledge the regression to one's purest form, and for this reason choose to not wear clothing or use the modern technologies of the world they live in. They are a primarily closed class, and while you don't need to be born into their class, you need to adapt to their lifestyle early to be truly accepted. They very rarely allow the Parliacio to aid them, and most commonly utilize them to send messages between groups of Ludean.
As companions, the Ludean Ketari stress acceptance over the things you cannot change, letting go of the things that are holding you back, and adapting to the world around you. They encourage releasing modern values in favor of happiness, as well as stepping back to spend time with friends and family. Community is very important to them, and you'll often find them to be in groups even while working to make a job easier. Helping and teamwork comes naturally to them, and they are never afraid to face a hardship to determine if they need to let it go, or fight for it.
