Catfolk as a people are usually joyously optimistic, and occasionally hedonistic, individuals. They tend to be very quirky and self-expressive, and often adopt phrases, affectations, or styles of dress from others with whom they interact, even people not of their own race. Highly inquisitive of anything novel or strange, they seek out new experiences with zeal. Despite emphasizing curiosity and individuality as virtues, however, few people would describe the average catfolk as flighty or undisciplined. Indeed, they can focus upon a task with uncanny intensity and tenacity when the need arises.
