The Raposa are the main race of creatures inhabiting the universe of the Drawn to Life series. They are anthropomorphic, sentient, and act mostly like humans, appearing to be the only creatures to be able to do so. All Raposa are monotheistic and acknowledge the fact that The Creator exists, although not all are happy with it, the most infamous example being Wilfre.
A Raposa's appearance is generally both fox-like and humanoid. Their bodies are covered in fur (Orange, Rust, Yellow, Brown, Tan, Light/Dark Grey) all except for their faces. Like real foxes, all Raposa have long upright ears, a distinguishing feature. However, they appear to lack tails. Female Raposa have no fur over their ears, whereas males do.
