The surat is native to Glory in the Clan Homeworlds.
Surats bear many resemblances to small primates with bat-like wings. Covered in fur with red and white strips on their face, they possess a long prehensile tail. Their diet consists of fruits, insects, or other small food they scrounge. Intelligent and highly domesticated, they are often kept as pets or to control pests.
Because of their overwhelming cuteness, voracious appetite, and ability to open food storage containers, their name has become an epithet throughout Clan Homeworlds and the Occupation Zones.
