The anatomy came out a little weird on this one, but I think the washes save it somewhat. Kinda'. Maybe. Anyway, Pyanfar Chanur is from C.J. Cherryh's "Chanur" series. The first Chanur book I picked up, "Chanur's Legacy," had a fantastic Michael Whelan cover on it, and the story within described an adventure that hinged mostly on intrique rather than explosions. Go read it!
