Half-Verbeeg have been suspised by both thier parents, making interaction hard with all other races. The Half-Verbeeg have been proven to have a very tenacious temper (possibly from their giant heritage), that makes any fear that particular Half-Verbeeg. They are one of the most common adventuring races, being a race that'll eventually be hated by even the Verbeeg.

Three sample Half-Verbeeg adventurers are described below.
Scythe is a Half-Verbeeg Seeker who sees herself as a hinderance to her friends, despite thier claims that she's loyal and caring. She fears her phsycopathic Verbeeg father, his image burned into her memory forever. She believes that her father won't die, even with her pact with the primal spirits of the mortal plane.
Sigil is a Half-Verbeeg Bard who made his living as a wandering storyteller. He favors being with the Gnomes, for thier trickery on himself and others has inspired most of his popular works. He has admirers of all races (excluding Verbeeg, of course), having him telling stories and signing "autographs" on certain belongings. He knows of his Verbeeg mother, but tends not to talk of the subject.
Lakura is a Half-Verbeeg Warden who was raised by Dryads, and thus knows nothing of the outside world around him. He was given a green amulet from his adopted mother, as a symbol of trust for the forest spirit and the fey spirits. He has been told that his real father is the self-proclaimed emperor of Garossia, making Lakura curious of the outside world and his Verbeeg father in particullar.
