Lynians (Japanese: 獣人種 Jūjinshu, "Beastman species") are sapient monsters, and are typically short of stature. There are currently three distinct groups of Lynian: the cat-like Melynx, Felyne, and Grimalkyne, the humanoid Shakalaka and Gajalaka, and the unique Uruki. Lynians are intelligent, have complex societies, and speak their own languages. Whereas the Shakalaka and Gajalaka are more primitive and tribal, the feline species tend to lead peaceful lives and often coexist with human society.
