The Nose and Gait of Kakkilayas

Kakkilayas have two distinct skeletal characteristics that are inherited by most, if not all, Kakkilayas. One is the sharp, pointed nose and the other, the right leg that is slightly rotated outwards resulting in a characteristic right leaning gait.

The Nose

The nose of Kakkilayas is sharp and pointed and at the tip there appears to be a square! All Kakkilayas are indeed proud of their trademark nose!

Kakkilayas, not all but some, also have an external rotation of the right lower limb. This results in a typical gait, wherin they lean a little to the right.
