Otterlings (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
The Otterlings have a mischievious and chaotic attitude. Their moral compass doesn't always point north and they will use whatever means necessary to accomplish the task at hand. Notorious tricksters and great at haggling these furry fellows are much like their namesake.
Otterlings stand approximately four feet tall with sun-browned, leathery skin. They typically have hair ranging from dark brown to white. Their eyes are usually blue, but can range across the spectrum. They have webbed feet with dark brown water proof fur upon them. Their hands are slightly webbed and a little wider then most halfling hands. Otterlings also have wider upper bodies and larger forearms. They can hold their breath for up to 10 minutes at a time. Males have dark brown facial hair that grows along the sides of their face only, giving them an otter like appearance. Females are generally slimmer and keep their hair tight upon their head to reduce drag if they swim.
The Otterlings get along extremely well with Plains Halflings, Aquatic Elves, and Sandstorm Dwarves, but are mildly stand-offish to most other elves. They tend to attack humans and gnomes first then they ask questions.
They live upon the water in floating villages and cites in the Tange Gozand.
All speak Common and Halfling. Most others speak at least one of the following fluently: Dwarven, Elven, Gnome, and Aquan.

Common last names: Jaliya (Fisherman), Banika (Merchant), and Abidya (Prostitute/consort)
