I repeat all my previous comments about cat-centaurs in Modern campaigns. If you can figure out how to do the conversion, I'll be interested in tucking it in . . . I suppose you could run a very strange campaign where there weren't any humans, just cat-centaurs, and TL7 tech. :-/
Kintarans become android-creations, designed for things like combat, bodyguarding, and other stuff that takes advantage of their formidible physical advantages. The shamans are either "sports," poorly-designed individuals who happen to have some psi to make up for their problems (the sports without psi are eliminated . . . ) - or the prototypes to a combat-monster on the mental field as well as the physical one.
This is a typical "grounder" shaman (actually, this one is typical of a pre-contact Kintaran), who is one of the unofficial leaders of the tribe/clan/group. Note that many of the non-psionic skills are geared towards preserving the "illusion" of mystical power - someone who didn't believe in psionic ability could be very surprised when, after seeing through the primitive act, the shaman makes some comment telepathically . . .
This one does have too many disads for a normal PC, unfortunately. Some more points might be sucked out of stats. Note that the Primitive disad really doesn't include enough TLs to make it past TL7 - maybe more levels would work, if they had to be bought off later . . .
