The last several caudal vertebra are fused and hardened, forming a spike, used for defense.
Skin color is sometimes blotched or speckled.
The fetches are skilled jumpers.
All fetches are flightless, though some arboreal fetches show inter-limb webbing. Vestigial wing bones are present, though they are quite small and completely internalized.
The cheek area is covered by a plate. This plate can be lifted away from the head and flared, allowing brightly colored membranes to show. The plate itself can be flushed a contrasting color.
A series of long, flat scales down the spine of the fetch can be raised. They are webbed and colored in a manner similar to the cheek plates.
The bodies are large and flat, with wide heads and stout limbs. Tail shape is affected by phase, as is the placement and coloration of various fins, knobs, horns, and other protuberances. Horns and other decorations are often asymmetrical.
Some species are venomous.

Introduction/ Background information
The Kansakunta have lived on the planet they call Kauasmaa since before their recorded history begins. At that time, they lived on the high plains of northern To Reinn, but over the centuries since that time, the tribes drifted apart; some staying on the plains, and some moving into the mountains.
While the other tribes moved south and West, the Merja moved slightly north, into the Lumivuorin, the Mountains of Snow. The tribe currently holds its territory from Vartiokylä, extending north-west in semicircle about eighty kilometers. The population is contained in approximately a dozen villages dispersed throughout this area. There is a history of inter-village warfare, usually on the level of a non-lethal blood sport; a war has not occurred in the past several decades.
The tribes lands have an average altitude of 2250 meters, wit
