The Mimetai resemble six-legged black-skinned creatures with spider-like features. Their middle two appendages still resemble hands, but their prefer to walk on their back and front four legs. Many of them bristle with white hairs and sometimes a long thick mane along their back.
Mimetai are a subrace of the Aknai, a curious mix of Bannai and Aknai. Early in the Third Age, the two races bred in large numbers, resulted in the Mimetai. Whether voluntary or forced, the first appearances of the Mimetai were centered around the ruins of Kirenoth.
Mimetai possess precious little technology and a simple culture centered around small hunting groups composed of family members. Many consider the taste of Aknai and Bannai blood to be especially delicious, but they will consume any prey to survive.
