How feline is a rajamala?

Hi, i’m just curious, can a rajamala’s appearance vary in terms of their feline features and how much of them are cat?
for example, i’ve seen some descriptions and images on here that describe some rajamalan characters as being like humans with just cat ears and a tail. However on other official images of achaea, it looks like they are purely cat like in facial features. 
What is the general consensus?

    In a world where a bugwoman and a troll man can produce a cat creature,  I'd say that you can pretty much do whatever the fuck you want

    I wouldn't quite say "whatever you want", as I do believe you should try to be at least somewhat recognizable for your race, but it's ok if there's quite a large range of possibilities.

    And well, for some races, being "recognizable" is very relative anyways. Particularly, humans, mhun, trolls, sirens, dwarves, and tsol'aa don't really have any definite features that distinguish them from another, so it's more or less just a gradient between those anyways (i.e. trolls being typically taller, dwarves generally being a bit stockier, etc.). Rajamalas, xorans, horkvals, atavians, tash'la, grooks, and satyrs are more definitely different, but even there you'd expect all sorts of genetic combinations.

    Sirens usually have some things that set them apart, from most of the descriptions I've read anyways

    @Thaisen your opinion is wrong and you should seek counseling. 

    JK, lol, defend that hill buddy.

    I change race frequently. Often once or twice a day.

     Plus I'm a shapeshifter.  I can be a Tash'la and conjure a magical beak like a turtle to snap at someone and then immediately embrace the powers of an icewyrm.

    Pretty sure all of that means I can do and be any amount of <race>-like that I want and justify it IC.  Hell I could be the epitome of a Horkval and then change my entire desription based on the mutations of so much changing and shapeshifting.  To the point I NEVER have the same descriptions repeat, of I were so inclined.

    I am not.  But this is part of how I justify not wearing clothes IG.   Plus they dont have jeans and a T. (Also because I am not great at descriptions, I hate 'fashion', and a tiny bit of laziness)

    Humanoid feline. I normally go by what the help files do, and don't, specify:


    My interpretation would be that all rajamala have coats, but since they're humanoid some patches without coat or with "paw-like texture" would be ok.

    There is a picture on the website...
    That said, for once I agree with Archaeon. Genetics are a weird thing in Achaea; I don't think you have to go full-on fursuit-style appearance, so long as you're distinguishable as a Rajamalan, and not some abomination that wears cat accessories and meows at people.

    Indeed.. a camel.  Not sure how you confused that with a feline.... like, at all.

    There once was a Raja whose description was that of a camel.. 

    I remembered it when looking at this topic and thought it might ring someone else's memory as well. 

    Sorry about the pic size.

    TBH I don't really care how feline you make yourself so long as you remember they are 'tiger-like' not 'cat-like'. All those cat-Rajas running around purring and talking about 'feesh' are one of those things that really grinds my gears as a player.
