Two out of three of those anime/mangas have catgirls. Should that worry me?
Not really, just happens to be that way.
They fear Oso, a door
kicker maker second to none. Clad in the heaviest assault armor, weilding the heaviest assault shotgun, and totally not equipped with a flame thrower, the bear has shattered the dreams of every crook ever to say "You ain't gettin' me outta here" nearby.
Unfortunately, mentally uplifted bears were declared an endangered species almost the moment they were created, and have been barred from using weapons of any type. They aren't even allowed sledgehammers during construction jobs.
Speaking of Not Quite humanity:AbNorms"Must be something in the water."
Whether it is because of the practices of the Karen Hospital, the slightly lax safety measures of the local Fussed Fusion Power Plant, or the "secret" ingredient of the Slop Burger of Slop Burger, humanity now finds itself living with some... interestingly varied cousins in the genetic tree.Elves
Most common of the AbNorms, Elves, despite their "closeness to nature", are loath to actually get their hands dirty, unless it is for some environmental awareness thing.
While more likely to be law-abiding, it is not unheard of for there to be a crooked one running some ring or other in the streets.
Any Elves on the police forces tend to be desk jockeys, though there are a few renowned snipers with pointy ears.Orcs
Second most common AbNormal, but also the most likely to be at the center of any trouble that happens. Every city has its downtrodden ethnic group, and Orcs find themselves holding the short straw in HyperCity.
This doesn't mean that there aren't good Orcs, just that the odds of improving their quality of life tends to be stacked against them.Dwarves
Blue collar workers, bar none. If there is good, honest work, there is at least one Dwarf working there. Usually the only times they wear suits is when they are meeting on behalf of a union.
Fun fact: The last three Chiefs of the HCPD have been Dwarves. The most recent, Olimar "Ollie" Alexander, aka "Red-faced Bullhorn", has the best record so far, though he reportedly has been having problems with his blood-pressure.Pech
The smallest AbNorm group in HyperCity. Seriously, you can count the number on both hands and feet (if you have those). Half of those are on most wanted lists for varying degrees of theft and larceny.Centaur
Of the AbNorms, Centaurs are the most civil minded, with the largest percentage of government employees in relation to it's own population. Then again, those that don't are also more likely to be troublemakers, including the gang "Wild Stallions".
Fun Fact: There is a saying in HyperCity - "Save a horse, ride a Centaur."Triton
Second smallest AbNorm populous, by about three people. Usually singers or dam workers.Faun
Thrill seekers, risk takers, party animals (yuk yuk)... As long as it gets the adrenaline flowing, there is usually a Faun doing it. This includes bungie jumping off buildings, breaking into places they shouldn't be, and being on both sides of a gunfight between cops and perps. To a Faun, the scariest thing in the world is a dull 9 to 5 job.Gorgon
Not much to say about Gorgons, other than that those aren't snakes (it's just their hair), 1-in-4 are male, 1-in-3 females are bat-buggery insane, the other third is of the six-armed snake tail variety, and the final third are rather nice honest ladies. Strangely the men have a Jamaican accent, yet the women don't.
