Lynians (Japanese: 獣人種 Jūjinshu, "Beastman species") are intelligent creatures, typically of short stature, that appear to be mammalian. Living in tribes, they share common cultures, dialects, and have recognized leaders. Lynians can be divided into cats (Melynx, Felyne, and Grimalkyne) and apes (Uriki, Shakalaka, Gajalaka and Boaboa). Although the apes are somewhat primitive, the cats are typically peaceful and often coexist with humans.
