Rakasta

The Rakasta are a race of feline-like humanoids that used to live in the warm, wooded regions of the south. The Rakasta are nearing extinction, however, (and some, in fact, believe that they may have already been wiped out) as their jungle homes continue to be overrun by the followers of the Demon Prince Demogorgon.

It has been rumored that if there are survivors of the once proud Rakasta that they must surely be slaves of the Demon Prince.
