Rangi are famous for their ability to generate and control vast amounts of electricity. They’re hypercarnivores and the ultimate apex predators of their planet; they’re fast runners and dangerous both in short and long range. Their electric powers originally worked as a hunting tool; electric shocks were used for stunning their prey, though skilled rangi could use huge bursts of energy to kill even the larger animals. An average rangi can passively create and control enough electricity to knock an average-sized human out but not kill one.
The ability to harvest and control electricity has been a part of their culture for thousands of years so most of their rites and other cultural aspects revolve around it. Rangi take great pride in their powers, thus over the history they have created multiple ways and techniques to hone their skills. Most techniques aim for improved agility, physical strength and most of all, making their electric currents more powerful and easier to control.
Rangi are known to be quite hot-tempered and somewhat aggressive but they are incredibly serious about their powers and have strict laws to keep other species safe. Though other species have implemented their own planet-specific laws as well, which most rangi see as a sign of mistrust towards them and are generally not happy about it.
They don’t really like to use firearms or weapons made by other species. Rangi prefer the pure use of their own powers, but because of the strict laws, most rangi these days use specifically made weapons to harvest and focus the little energy they are allowed to use. Even though they are relatively short (1,5-1,6m) and lightweight compared to other species, they’re incredibly skilled fighters with fast reflexes and sharp claws, thus they’re formidable opponents even without their powers.
Rangi are not very good at interacting with other species. Their general stand-offish temperament and somewhat introverted society makes them difficult to approach, but the few rangi individuals with people skills are usually enough to keep the species-wide politics going and prevent most serious conflicts from happening.
