Physical Description[edit]

The Chao are small creatures with pudding-like bodies. In general, Chao have round waterdrop-like heads with large eyes but no noses, round torsos smaller than their heads, smooth feet with no legs, and arms with no visible hands. Neither their arms or feet have digits. They also have a short tail, small wings, and a floating dot above their heads. Generally, they have light blue skin with yellow tips on their arms, feet and head, blue eyes, and pink wings. However, Chao are incredibly varied when it comes to appearance.

History[edit]

Where exactly the Chao come from, nobody really knows for sure. All that is known is their relation to the Fey.

Society[edit]

Chao live in large groups in various environments. They act somewhat similar to children, as their mannerisms have been described as pleasant and relaxing. They love to compete in activities known as Chao Racing and Chao Karate, which are fairly self-descriptive. Commonly, they are extremely friendly towards other races, becoming attached to individuals. As such, they can become loyal companions who will go to extreme lengths in order to protect their loved ones.

Chao Names[edit]

As Chao have no gender, they can be named practically anything they want. Most who befriend one of another race are given cute nicknames, such as Cheese, Chocola, Betty, etc. Just go crazy!
