Fate system (The end is nigh)
several years ago a project called the Apache experimented on intelligent life. among those experimented on were 1 elephant and a large amount of monkeys and ravens (at least that is the most notable). this experiment cause brain waves to be transferred and altered through a speech device to allow these animals to say what they are thinking. well it worked and the creatures begain to live and work as a team however they became to smart. when the mana was released into the habitat the creatures evolved into something different which was good because it gave them the ability to freely escape from their habitat and establish homes around the world. in addition they evolved with the ability to speak so the device was unnecessary.
the kelaira are originally ravens only now their wings now have talons and they stand just shorten then an average man. they have sharp rows of teeth protruding from their beak and now only diet on bugs and meat. they evolved to have a tail and stand upright. well picture a raptor standing on its hind legs, now give it wings and armored scales on its spine, and change its nose to a beak with teeth. bad ass huh? they differ in color depending on their climate.
