An Arrin-thari is a Kencyr who fights using the Arrin-thar, the fighting discipline using clawed hands. While anyone can wear clawed gauntlets, and this fighting skill is taught to Randon candidates at Tentir, a very few Kencyr are natural Arrin-thari, Shanir with clawed hands and sometimes feet. Only two have so far been encountered.
Jame has clawed hands with fully retractable claws that emerged at the age of seven.
Bear, on the other hand, has hands with three-inch claws that cannot retract, and clawed feet as well.
