The Omnicats are the descendants of fluffy white domesticated housecats of ancient times. Omnicats stand about four to six feet tall with green eyes and pure white fur. In ancient times, the Lionoids forced the vain Omnicats to work like everyone else, and the Omnicats have never forgotten nor foregiven. They hate the Lionoids for this treatment and when they are really in charge, they will punish the Lionoids every way they can.

Shamelessly using their beauty to bribe and charm their overlords and escape any serious work, over the last few hundred years, the Omnicats have sucessfully been scheming amongst themselves to make themselves true royalty.

By marring into the Tigron royal family they themselves have become the royalty of the Kat species, willingly accepting the trade of most of the king's political power for the royal title (the Tigron accepted the situation because there were too many Tigron claims to the throne and it was feared that Civil War would break out if one Tigron were to be chosen over another with an equal claim, the Omnicat misinformation campaign keeping tempers stired and fear of civil war predominate in the minds of the Kats.....with the death of the old Tigron King, so ended the royal Tigron Kat family line which caused particuliar problems as there had never before beem a succession out of the direct royal family before...).

From the beginning, the Omnicats acknowledged one leader, the widowed Queen, who (through secret and judicious uses of force and fear); they managed to made the other Kats accept her as their nominal ruler. The other Kats only accepting this as social royalty to avoid the feared and often threatened civil war. In the deal known as the "Great Kat Sucession Compromise" the Queen retained only the royal right to personally manage the royal households budget, the governmental allowance for each of her heirs (which was fixed at a certain amount) by the government. The Queen also retained the right to appoint her heirs to governmental and or military advisory positions for them to gain experience to be ready to assume the position of ruler upon her death.

Once she was crowned and had the loyality pledges of all the military and all the government and were publically announced, the Omnicat Queen adopted every member of the Omnicat subspecies as her heirs, thus making the Omnicats the royalty of the Kat race.

Now every Omnicat is a royal prince or princess, asigned to advise every military or government official of note. The Queen draws a fortune from the royal treasury as an allowance for her heirs and while giving most of it to her "heirs" she retains a large amount of it....through this loop-hole in the "Great Sucession Compromise" she has become the richest Kat yet, with no government oversight as to her spending.

The Omnicats want it all: true power, wealth, and authority, and are ruthless about getting it, however they are patient and cunning. The Omnicats worship themselves, their own beauty. (Hence the name) They pride themselves excessively on looks, ignoring their often-poisoned hearts. They are both sensual and cruel beings, but they are on top at the present, and exploit this as much as they dare.

While the other Kats are not happy about this devolpment, so far there has been no known attempts at overthrowning the Omnicat Queen who has taken great care to ignore political matters, seemingly content to have taken care of her own...
