The ratta, by one not very well traveled, might at first be mistaken for the far more common muris. However, they physiologically differ in quite a few ways - the ratta is notably taller, typically about a head shorter than the average human. They are leaner, but more muscular, with notable longer snouts, and without the disproportionately sized hands and feet. Bread by the Sh'thani to act as personal spies and to carry out less-than-noble tasks against rivals, the ratta retain the physical feats that enabled their success, and so often find themselves employed for such tasks, even in modern times. Ratta may cohabitate with family members, but they do this out of practicality - most ratta who can afford to will live solitary lives. They are known for being somewhat cold and uncaring, but also for having a distinctly dark sense of humor that is either offputting or completely enrapturing.
