Important to note: "Warenlandrnen" can refer either to anyone that happens to reside within the Warenlandr Commonwealth, regardless of their species, or to the specific species native to the Warenlandr Commonwealth of the same name. Where this distinction becomes important, one could, for example, describe a Human resident of the Warenlandr Commonwealth as a "Human-Warenlandrnen" or "Warenlandr-Human", or a member of the species of the name in question as an "ethnic Warenlandrnen".


Within modern evolutionary classification, Warenlandrnen would most likely fit somewhere in the placentalia magnorder of the mammalian class (live-born young, possessing hair/fur, neocortex, etc), though they possess traits found across a range of different orders within that magnorder. Though primarily bipedal, Warenlandrnen are also capable of quadrupedal movement to an extent when necessary. Their overall frame is not dissimilar to that of humans, though they also possess some traits common to viverrids (civets, linsangs), lagomorphs (rabbits, hares, pikas), and some other primates. Limb configuration is the same as that found in humans, with the exception that Warenlandrnen have tails.

Warenlandrnen hands, though remaining appropriately scaled per their smaller body size, are almost identical to that of humans, with five digits (four fingers plus opposable thumb), but with protractile (or retractable) claws, such as with felids. Their feet however, have only four digits, which are also clawed, but non-retractable, and provide a distinctly unique print. Warenlandrnen skulls have a muzzle elongation similar to that of rabbits or lemurs; more than that of humans, but less than that of canids. They possess sharp, stereoscopic, forward-facing eyes, and erect, elongated, back-swept ears, comparable in body-scale to that of a fennec fox.

Their silken-furred tails tend on average to approximate slightly beyond the length of their torso, though in some cases can be longer than the rest of the entire body, and in some cases can be significantly shorter. Exceptionally muscular, and partially prehensile, it often serves a third arm to a limited capacity. Warenlandrnen tend to have soft, dense, medium-length fur covering their entire body except for on the pads of their hands and feet.

Average height for a fully upright-standing adult Warenlandrnen (from head to toe) is between ~0.9m and ~1.15m (or ~2'9" and ~3'7"), not accounting for tail length. Warenlandrnen generally tend to be faster and more agile than both humans, but also physically weaker. Hair/fur colour is widely varied, but generally tends to consist of various ochres, melanins, and other earthen colours (e.g., blacks, silvers, greys, reds, oranges, yellows, whites). Atypical pigmentations are possible, but exceptionally rare. Eye colour can be influenced by environment and diet (and thus can slightly change over time), but most commonly tends towards shades of red, brown, gold, green, and blue.


Naturally adapted to a range of possible climates and living conditions, Warenlandrnen can conceivably be found throughout most of the world, though they tend to predominantly inhabit their native home of Warenlandr. Due to a combination of evolutionary quirks, history, and their culture, Warenlandr settlements may be found above ground, below ground, or both, depending on the natural shape of the surrounding environment. In sandy deserts where soil integrity is likely to be limited, and in flattened areas very close to sea level, settlements tend to be mostly above ground, taking shape not dissimilar from that of human settlements, albeit somewhat scaled down due to the smaller Warenlandr body size. In mountainous areas and areas much higher than sea level, as well as areas where there may be a large number of natural predators or potential threats, settlements tend to be mostly below ground, in some cases, some settlements being buried very deeply, entirely below ground, essentially supporting large populations that could be completely unnoticed from the surface. Conversely, areas with good soil integrity, forests, and areas with little to no threats would likely beget settlements extending equally far below ground as above ground.
