Brathin are short but powerfuly built humanoids from a heavy gravity world. They have a stocky build, five digit hands and nub toes on their broad feet, and short fur like hair over most of their bodies in single colors ranging from blonde to brown, auburn, and black. The brathin head is somewhat equine looking with mouth and nostrils on a long muzzle. Eyes are generaly dark, but not always, and their pointed ears lay flat against the side of their heads because the rim of their ear canal is part of their skull and not cartilage.
Brathin tend to be very polite and industrious people in general. The politeness stems from the species trait of dealing with insult. If a brathin is directly insulted their automatic reaction is to strike the offender. For the brathin, direct insults are an invitation to fight.
They have learned to curb this impulse among non brathin, but it is frustrating for them as they normaly lack the subtle verbal fencing skills in social situations that most other sapients practice.
The brathin have been members in good standing of the Alliance for about a thousand years. The brathen sphere is fairly wide spread, but not overly populous. They have a few deeply settled core worlds and many smaller colonies and outposts, many of them constructed in hostile environments such as barren rock ball planets, moons, and asteroids. Though they are not united by a single government, most brathin populations tend to be very scimilar and coperative. They are democratic with leadership roles held by respected community members under general consensus and are mostly Alliance members.
