Kaiute Species: Canis Kaiuteia Sapiens

Background: No one seems quite sure where these humanoids came from. Some say they are early Dog Boy Lone Star experiments who escaped, others say they are mystically enhanced Coyles who worship a dark god. These coyote-like humanoids have a tribal society that is the sworn enemy of humankind. They control large portions of what was once Oklahoma, and are pushing into Texas at an alarming rate. The Kaiutes are well organized, and skilled at traps and sabotage. They are possessed of a black sense of humor, pulling nasty pranks on those they can't or don't want to kill outright. Kaiute packs usually arm themselves with vibro-blades and small arms, and wear makeshift or stolen Dog Boy armor, riding various mounts. Kaiutes are ruthless and opportunistic. Their one weakness is alcohol, and they can be bribed with it in some situations. They worship their own trickster diety, and greatly seem to have an aversion to borgs and bots, treat this as an obsession insanity to hate borgs and bots. Although they seem to constantly be in competition with each other for social standing in the pack, they quickly gang up with each other against outsiders. They seem to possess an uncanny skill for military organization.

Appearance: Appear to be a humanoid coyote, complete with dog-like head and bushy tail. The seem to have a scruffy look about them, and are usually unbathed and carry mismatched, scrounged weapons and armor.
