Physical Description[edit]

Evolland, also known as oogama in their native tongue, are enormous toad creatures that stand taller than the average man. They have long and agile tongues which they use to catch other creatures to eat. Their mouths are able to expand up to half their own body's height, allowing them to swallow a good deal of creatures. They are able to stand on their hind legs and walk like humans. Their breath is a strange, rainbow colored substance that can induce sleepiness in whatever organisms breath it in. Mimicking humans, they are known to wear clothes and even use weapons.


It is said that evolland originate from lands of the east, where primal energy and arcane influences mix and alter certain creatures over time. In their original tongue, evolland are called oogama, meaning "giant toad." They are said to come about when an unnaturally long lived toad of 100 years or more has accumulated an excess of magic and primal energy. This in turn changes them from a normal animal into something more of a spirit or graduated creature of sentience. This is a similar life cycle to that of nekomata or kitsune. Evolland were introduced to the rest of the world over the course of seafaring expansion. While they initially lived like brutes in forests and terrorized those who crossed their rivers, eventually, they sought to get out of their metaphorical well.


Evolland are belligerent creatures with mild cases of scopophobia. Instead of reacting with fear, they do so with rage, picking fights left and right with those they think are staring at them. Outside of their natural habitat by streams and rivers, evolland are fairly solitary. Within their own element, evolland live in damp caves by water sources and fiercely guard their territory. They live in groups that commonly interchange members when mating seasons come, which is a time of great bellicosity. The largest male evolland usually gets his pick of a choice female, though females are known to wander on their own in search of mates. Evolland are fairly fond of sports like wrestling, which they use to show off during mating. Otherwise, they hunt other creatures along the waterfront, like snakes, rats, and even humans. Due to their belligerent attitude, evolland are highly antisocial.

Evolland Names[edit]

Names for evolland commonly derive from their original language of Wa. Males have very long and illustrious names based on their status and strength. Female evolland all have names of roughly the same length with the connector "no" in the middle.
