Cigarette Man[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

Cigarette Men (or women) are creatures made primarily of paper and tobacco, and their shape depends on the subrace, even though they share most traits. They generally have a stature similar to humans.


This race is believed to have come from a distant land of giants, when tobacco was first introduced to them. In their early attempts of creating cigarettes, the giants made two variants of them, the Industrials and the Rolled. When they decided to light them, their magic infused fires granted life to the Cigarettes, and ran away. From then on, the Cigarettes lived in small groups centered around magic fires to create more of their kind.


The cigarettes, when living in groups, have small towns or villages around their magic fire, which is used for creating more of them, although they prefer their numbers to remain small in order to not draw attention. While they might not have a religion of their own, they can adopt religions of other races, usually depending on where they live.

Cigarette Man Names[edit]

They are usually named with puns on tobacco brands, from this or other worlds.

Male: Grizzly, Copen Hagen, Garr.

Female: Marla, Camellia, Faith.
