Hunched over humanoids with ugly faces and dull minds, bokoblins are considered by others to be the lowest of the low. Just like all moblins, they are inherently thought of as cruel abominations adhering to primal instincts to survive. They lack strength or skill in practically any area, and barely eke out an existence by living off the scraps of others—or what they've managed to beat out of those they could easily defeat. They seem to treasure the bones of creatures they've killed, using them as status symbols to prove their superiority over other bokoblins.
Persevering. The only credit reluctantly given to bokoblins is their tenacity. Their subrace has managed to survive mostly unchanged since before history began, and continues to populate the wilderness in high numbers. Unique among humanoids, they reproduce rapidly and in large litter-like batches, which aids the race in their continued existence. They are believed to be the most numerous of moblins by far.
Color Hierarchy. While bokoblins are usually of red, orange, or brown skin, other colorations are possible. Those of uncommon green or blue skin tones are of higher status among moblins, but of little physiological difference. However, golden bokoblins are treated akin to demigods—these rare varieties wield power and intelligence backed by the hint of Ganon's magic that has influenced the race.
