Subject: Leporidae Sapient Gunnildr
An interesting specimen to be sure, the Leporidae Sapient Gunnildr was discovered in a crashed UFO sometime in the late 1990s. Initially hostile, after incident 7059b, with which personnel from Operation: Minuteman were captured briefly, relations quickly improved to the point that a mutual understanding was met, and diplomacy was initiated.
It was soon discovered that the UFO was a refugee ship from a planet called "Eruyt", although the navigation systems were fried, and we are still trying to pinpoint the system's location.
Soon thereafter, following an intensive year-long investigation into the species' origins that found no conclusive proof of hostility towards humanity, the subjects were granted refugee status.
Unfortunately, due to the Leporidae Sapient Gunnildr's unique physiology and psychology, it was deemed that the subjects would only be allowed limited contact with the world at large, often under close supervision. As such, many Leporidae Sapient Gunnildr decided to make many of the Minuteman military bases that they were being held their home.
Over the following years, the sight of a Leporidae Sapient Gunnildr became commonplace in the cement-filled holes that the project often used, though a number of subjects did leave to join a number of Minuteman's sister organizations. A few were even successful in joining civilian life, though these were, and still are, closely monitored to prevent any possible leaks to the "truth".
The ties, however, were not as strong as the ones brought on by the 98-99 incident. During this time, many subjects gave their lives right along side humanity, even sacrificing themselves to save a small few people. Now, despite being much fewer than they were, it can be said that they will have a home on planet Earth.
Subject Physicality Report: Leporidae Sapient Gunnildr is a carbon-based biped-humanoid, sharing many traits with Homo Sapient Sapient. It fact, there are a surprising number of similarities, one that has many scientists theorizing a possible shared ancestry between the two species. Until we can make it to their Eruyt to get proper samples, however, we can only theorize. However, this does mean that many foods edible to humans are also edible to Leporidae Sapient Gunnildr, although the species happens to be entirely vegetarian, possibly because of the other species that Leporidae Sapient Gunnicus shares similarities: The common bunny rabbit, although the only visual hints towards such are the long floppy ears, and the differing body proportions (longer, more muscular legs; skinnier arms).
Because of the otherwise similar physical traits to humans, a Leporidae Sapient Gunnildr could pass itself off as one, though it often requires tying their ears either behind their heads or underneath a hat. Because of this, many grow their hair long, which they often tie back in a way to hide their ears.
Speaking of hair, another trait they share with humans is their lack of fur, although the top of the head seems to be the only place where they grow hair. The rest of the body is remarkably bare. Might be genetic engineering at work here, though we will need a more "raw" specimen before we can come to a conclusion.
Another similarity to humans: reproductive system. At least, as far as we can tell the proper "tools" are in the proper places, although we only have the female of the species to observe (more on this later), and males have been confirmed by both subject testimony and genetic observations, as before until we can find one, we can only assume that the same "dance" is required to propagate the species, which has more or less been confirmed by personnel testimony.
And speaking of personnel testimony, the mere fact that Human-LSG relations can go so far as to produce offspring is remarkable. Even more remarkable is what species the offspring can be. Namely that all the sons are human, and the daughters are not.
This should not be possible. We have studied this at length, and have concluded that it is, in fact, not possible. And yet somehow it happens. More extensive study will be required, but the current theory is some sort of sub-conscious psychic quantum genetic manipulation happens during the gestation period. Of course, as a colleague has pointed out, considering some of the scientific impossibilities that faces CETT on a daily basis, something like this shouldn't be too surprising, and that we should be glad that no freaks of nature can be a result of this particular inter-species relationship.
So much to study...
Subject Psychology report: The most bazaar part of Leporidae Sapient Gunnildr, and in fact the cause of the last part of its name, is the psychological profile. They seem to have some memory of a previous culture, but don't seem to remember the details. When discovered, they had some highly advanced technology available to them, yet once friendly relations was established gave all of it up willingly, and became practically enthralled in human technology, particularly that of firearms and military tech.
Because of this, occupations often have some relation to firearms, whether it is the construction, modification, maintenance, and/or use. Hence the rather obscure "Gunnildr" monicker at the end, since as far as we can tell, this behavior is consistent across the entire species, or at least the part we have made contact with.
Considering how unusual this is, it is believed that we may have discovered escapees of some sort of genetically engineered army, although why they would be modified in this way is still a mystery. However, given their consistent record of loyalty to the agencies they have worked with, as well as records well within nominal perimeters, we don't believe that they pose a possible security risk, though the current rate of psychological testing should be continued just to be safe.
