Neko means cat in Japanese, and in the physical world. It is also used to describe humanoid feline creatures that are basically half human, half cat characters. They possess cat-like ears and furry tails, and sometimes claws and slitted eyes as well. Their face and skin are similar to that of a humans, though some Nekos also have fur on some parts of their body, usually their forearms. Their behavior tends to vary a lot; you can find Nekos who are very used to living in human cities and behave just like them too, and you can also find other specimens who are much wilder, run on four legs, and can climb a tree in the blink of an eye.
