The Tikmijn (TEEK men) are a race of intelligent, cunning, and diminutive furry creatures. Most are only 2 feet tall. They have the face and muzzle like that of a fox, but with larger ears. Their bodies are ferret-like, but nearly as wide as an otter's. They walk on their hind legs, but frequently drop to all fours to run or rest. They have nimble, small hands that they use to hold and examine whatever their curiosity deems necessary. Their keen ears allow them to hear better than humans, and they can reproduce most sounds.
The Tikmijn were discovered when the Krynn landed on the world known to them as 'Saxon'. They mostly ignored what they thought was the local animal population, and continued to build and use Saxon's resources. They eventually found that much of their equipment and ships stopped working. Upon further investigation, it seemed that much of their was sabotaged systematically. Over their 20-year garrison, they discovered that the diminutive Tikmijn, who they thought were unintelligent animals, were actually a sentient race. During their stay, they found communities and settlements of the Tikmijn.
The Krynn exploited the Tikmijn's small size and nimble hands to do repair jobs on their ships. The Tikmijn quickly learned the language of of the Krynn due to their keen hearing and ability to reproduce sounds. Over the years, The Tikmijn adapted quickly to the new technology and became comfortable living in ships and bases with other races. They became adept mechanics, letting their natural curiosity drive their technical talents. They like to mimic voices and noises, and some are proficient enough to speak carrier tones and communicate with digital equipment.
The Tikmijn have a sophisticated, multi-tonal language, allowing them to work together well. They can communicate complex ideas and plans in a fraction of the time it takes other races to.
Because of their thick fur, most Tikmijn no not wear clothing, but many wear a harness to put tools and equipment in as they crawl through tight ship crawlspaces.
