Oh Hydraaaa, you should know by now that Kirsaians don't have tails. XD
Yeah, I actually based part of his design off a chimp. Booya. He's like a humanized chimp with a tail.
He's an Elf (lol our elves are different), which means he's a great ape of some sort, but technically he isn't in the human family with humans/vampires and Kirsaians.
He's a helluva lot more advanced, though, at least in terms of tool use. XD People without magic or divine abilities would need to learn to adapt how they could, though. When you can't light a fire with magic, what can you use? Y'know? Basically, elves are considered more sensible, cautious, and curious than the other intelligent species... even if they're really stripped down and have no real "powers".
The Elves actually used to be more catlike/doglike-inspired, though far more human in appearance: Here
you can see one - the guy with dark skin and green glowing eyes, Dom, is an elf but that's an old design.
I'll explain the god stuff in more detail down the road. Like, draw a diagram or a minicomic or something.
