Citrakayahs are a species from the planet Chalybeas.[PD 1]

Appearance

Citrakayahs are slim human-sized aliens with blue and black fur covering their bodies. They have black fins around their faces that end in points, resulting in a mask-like appearance. Their legs and elbows also have long spikes on them.

Powers and Abilities

Much like Kinecelerans, Citrakayahs have enhanced speed and agility, and are shown to have enhanced reflexes as well.

Citrakayahs are capable of giving themselves a boost of speed while running; this is demonstrated when Dr. Animo's missile flew past Fasttrack, and he ran at a higher speed, allowing him to outrun it for a short time and forcing Animo to increase the missile's power.[1] Furthermore, Citrakayahs can also jump to great heights while running.[2]

Citrakayahs are durable enough to withstand being thrown against the Seal.[3]

Citrakayahs can recover quickly, as Fasttrack was able to immediately get back on his feet and continue running when he saw that Sir George was about to attack him again.[3] Similarly, Fasttrack was able to recover from falling to the ground after he jumped towards Animo's missile but failed to catch it.[1]

Citrakayahs possess enhanced strength, as Fasttrack was able to carry both Magister Hulka and Tack to safety without losing any speed.[4] Technically speaking, Fasttrack is physically stronger than Kinecelerans.[MW 1]

Citrakayahs have enhanced dexterity, as seen when Fasttrack disarmed a group of Forever Knights by taking their weapons away and was able to carry them all in his hands before dropping them on the floor.[5]

Citrakayahs seem to have an exceptional level of balance, as Fasttrack was easily able to run out of Kevin's car without falling down and stay on his feet even while it was speeding through the desert.[1]

Like Kinecelerans, Citrakayahs have an enhanced sense of direction, as Fasttrack could easily knock down several Esoterica in seconds while running in sharp zigzags and circles.[6]

Weaknesses

There is a limit to how fast a Citrakayah can run, as they can have a hard time stopping if they run too quickly.[1]

It is implied that, despite their enhanced speed, Citrakayahs are physically slower than Kinecelerans.[7][3]

There is a limit to how much damage Citrakayahs can recover from, as an explosion caused by the Door to Anywhere was able to knock Fasttrack out.[8]

Being a speed-based species, Citrakayahs share similar weaknesses with Kinecelerans. For example, they are being unable to run on certain surfaces like ice, which can make them slip very easily.[1]

Similarly, opponents with good reflexes and reaction time can counter a Citrakayah's speed and land a blow on them, as seen when Fasttrack ran straight into Sir George's outstretched arm, badly stunning him.[3]

Being a feline-based species, Citrakayahs can be controlled by people who have the ability to control cats, like Nyancy Chan, depending on how prevalent their feline attributes are.[DJW 1]

Unlike Kinecelerans, Citrakayahs are not completely frictionless.[DR 1]

Notable Citrakayahs

Etymology

Citrakayah comes from the vernacular name for the cheetah, which is derived from the Hindi word चीता (cītā), which in turn comes from the Sanskrit word चित्रकायः (citrakāyaḥ) meaning "bright" or "variegated".

Trivia

  • The Omniverse crew never brought up how other members of this species would look, including whether they can come in different colors.[DJW 2]
