The Kiakh'iee are domesticated mammalian omnivore/gatherers, used by the S'mrii for the care of their eggs and infant young. Physiologically, they share the same hexapodal body structure as the S'mrii, and when full grown are between half and two-thirds the size of an adult S'mrii. The fur coloration varies between white through golden-brown to greyish black (very rare). There are some twenty recognized subspecies or "breeds" in existence.

The Kiakh'iee are remarkable for in that they appear to be nearly sentient. As far as the IISS's Sophontology Division can tell, this was triggered by a process of selective breeding practiced by the S'mrii. The discovery was made in 1059 and nearly caused civil war. The IISS tried to obtain full protected status for the Kiakh'iee. Agreement was finally reached on a guardianship arrangement, whereby individual Kiakh'iee would be classed as minors under the supervision of a S'mrii (or, less commonly, a human).
