Kangra

Kangras are intelligent humanoid kangaroos. Some historians claim that these unusual creatures were the creation of an animal-loving wizard, though the kangra themselves have an oral tradition that locates their origin as divine guardians of the vast plains.

Whatever their origin, kangras are roughly human in height, with large, muscular legs and a long tail. Their bodies are covered in gray or brown fur and those who can bear children have pouches on their abdomens, in which they traditionally carry their young.
