You are en emperor of a space empire and you have various races in the empire (I look for pretty standard ones, so no energy beings and such ). I wanted to categorize them into bigger groups, like you conquered a planet and there is a "Humanoid" race (without specifying what kind).
I thought of these:
Humanoids - terrans and all races from StarTrek
Insectoids - ants, bugs and other hive type beings
??? - bird like
??? - cat/bear/wolf like (agile, aggressive)
Octopoids - octopus like, tentacles and the like
I also look for names for the "???".
