Species: Stellar Foxtaur (Starwalker Breed)
Nimbus is most at home in freefall in space which is where the Starwalkers live and work. Hir breed is immune to claustrophobia, agoraphobia, and horizon stare, does not ever get motion-sickness, and has a superior sense of spacial awareness. Hir jet-black fur is short and dense, and has special thermal and anti-radiation properties. Like all Starwalkers, hir eyes are golden in colour due to being fortified against radiation, and possessing a photo-reactive nictating eyelid to guard against sun glare. Because they all have the same black fur, Starwalkers tell each other apart mostly by scent or voice, and they affect exaggerated accents for this reason. Nimbus puts on a broad Americam Western accent, and has some mannerisms to match. Shi also loves to play poker, and has been known to relieve many a starfarer of their excess cash.
Nimbus is one of a family workgroup of 36 adults and several kits. Shi is a systems engineer and is head of maintenance for the Arisia Gateway construction project. Because of the limitations in room and resources, only a very few kits have been born to the group so far, but because of hir seniority, shi was chosen by Eclipse to sire one whom they named Crescent. The colonies on the planet they orbit are growing considerably though, and the Gateway space station will be very busy servicing the young new world when it is finally completed, and they will then have a lot more room. At that time, there will be many who will qualify for having a baby themselves, including Nimbus. Shi just hasn't decided yet which of hir co-mates will be the sire.
