About Naran This is one of the languages spoken by a monosex avian alien race. The culture, however, that speaks Naran independently developed a system, with heavy religious connotations, of four genders with strict roles, expectations, and norms. This system has become rooted in their language.

Most other cultures of this species, such as the cosmopolitan Ikhari, whose language is unrelated to Naran, do not have gender as a concept.

Other notable features about Naran are its lack of click phonemes common to other languages of this species, complex system of cases and declensions, and relatively simplified verbal system.

Both the flag and adapted script were designed by a human diplomat for alignment with human record management. Cyrillic is for for transliterative use by humans and human technology. Naran is traditionally written in a predominantly logographic script with some phonemic and non-verbal visual elements. This script is not currently compatible with human-made technology.
