The Ayakera (tree walkers) race of anthropomorphic lemurs that reside in the Sul'Asha province of the Kingdom of Abun, but are also believed to have very far origins since many of them are living in other Naktian countries as well.

They live in forest or jungle areas close to rivers and lakes, primary residing in tree tops. The Ayakera are fast and agile climbers thanks to their primate features, such as strong gripping hands and the opposable thumbs on their feet. They are a warm blooded, mammalian race with a thin layer of fur of varying colors with their most recognizable features being their prehensile, ring patterned tails.

An average adult Ayakra male is 5-6 feet tall while an average adult female can be from 4-6 feet tall, but their tails are normally from 5-7 feet long, the majority of the time their tails are longer than their height.

The origins of the Ayakera

Historical records of the Ayakera only go as far back as a few centuries after the dinosaurs, but are believed to have existed as far back as the Great decent period because of the many stories passed down from generation to generation. The Ayakera only had a written language once a large number of them learned the Abunese language. Before then the Ayakera only spoke in their native tongue called Qüanqüa, an uncommon dialect that requires special throat muscle memory from early childhood.

Religious practices

The Ayakera do not worship any known deity in the traditional sense, but instead perform a form of prayer to something ever present and vital to all life in the jungle, the sun. Every morning, in the first two hour period of the sun rising over the horizon, every Ayakera climb to the very top of the trees and sit in a well practiced sitting position. Once ready they spread their bodies as wide as possible to bath as much of their bodies in the golden light of the morning sun. This religious practice is called Kabuvo, or "light bathing".
