* BearHug: Invoked. Hani apparently don't embrace, and when Tully does so to Pyanfar out of gratitude for his rescue, it scares the hell out of her. It is described step-by-step as a strange, alien custom. The rest of the crew understands they're a sort of non-verbal expression of affection (probably because he was a lot more sedate with them than he was [[Glomp with the captain]]).

The Chanur novels are a set of five books by Creator/CJCherryh. They all revolve around the Chanur clan, led by political master Pyanfar Chanur spacefaring members of a species called ''Hani'': [[{{Catfolk}} anthropomorphic lions]] to the rest of us. A collection of other bizarre aliens (barely) coexist with them in a loose coalition known as the Compact, and the series consists mostly of political manipulations, conspiracies, and sociopolitical analysis after a single human named Tully escapes from his captors and stows away on the clan's ship at dock. Things get very complicated.

** The second book in the series clarifies that "Clan" system became the dominant Hani culture due to the Mahendosat making FirstConact in a region where this was the custom. Gaining advanced technology and powerful allies so early so fast more or less caused the resultant space faring clans to dominate the world and the eventual world government.
