Meet the Singas
Singa race: highly-evolved, hyper-rational, war-mongering felines who value science over stories, so much so they’ve outlawed fiction. In other words, it’s torture for book lovers like you and me. And so it is for our unlikely hero, cursed with the “fiction affliction” a dreaded disease which causes him to spew fiction without warning.
Being a diseased “Spinner” is a tough ride because it’s hard to hide, especially when you’re an awkward thirteen-year-old heir to the throne and sworn to protect the Pride from the dangerous influence of fiction. Worse, the enemy beyond the Great Wall is rising up and inside the wall, the realm is being torn apart. Even for a highly evolved feline, it’s a lot to manage.

Character Inspiration Art
My characters (both Singa and Maguar) are not four-legged big cats like lions and tigers. They are highly evolved, intelligent two-legged feline humanoids. They kept the fur, agility, tail and keen senses of their feline ancestors but they have hands with opposable thumbs instead of paws and they stand upright. They also have language, culture and superior smarts.
Below are some images of “cat-people” from different artists which inspired me.
