Platinum and Pookas
Pookas are relatively docile creatures, about the size of a cat, with large, round, lopped ears and a long tail. They come in many patter varieties, and can often have multi-colored eyes. They are usually peaceful, but can become violent if threatened. They are herbivorous, and generally live in burrows.

Pookas worship Loki, and have a festival at seemingly random points in the year, called T’dirrin, which is a festival for Loki. During T’dirrin, the moon turns red and it is night for several days at a time.
Pookas have a very complex society, which is usually peaceful. The society itself is built upon mating, and it is a very important part of any pooka’s life.
