No one knows how the Zeff were brought to light, but scholors think that maybe, Hexor made these creatures to be pawns in his game to overthrow his half-brother. This remains unconfirmed, as the Zeff are quite peaceful with humans. They reach maturity at the age of 24, which is when they start having their growth spurt.

 Zeff Adventurers
Three sample Zeff adventurers are described below.
Xon is a female Fighter. She was brought up in a town of humans, though most humans watched her warily. She had been abandoned after her village fell to waste. A man and woman had pity on the creature, not knowing what it was, and adopted her. As she started her growth spurt, the man and woman were too poor to support her and them. She was 24 years old at this time. They had heard of a group of adventurers who were in the Wayward Soldier Inn. The girl had shown talent at fighting once when a few humans broke in and tried to kill her, so the man and woman decided that she would benefit the adventurers. And so she has. She has pulled them out of many a scrape.
Ioth is a male Rogue. He had a Mother and Father. Killed in an orc raid. Many a times he's looked to the stars and promised revenge for their death. He was providing for himself ever since he was 8 years old. He has wandered the land with a makeshift axe, looking for any orcs to slaughter. He got his wish. There were a few Zeff fighting a whole hoard of orcs. His eyes gleamed with a fire. He slaughtered orcs, left and right. After the battle, the adventurers welcomed Ioth into their group.
