Physical Description[edit]

Geese are usually small, white feathered birds with orange beaks and webbed feet. There is the Canadian variant which has brown feathers, with a black beak and feet. They stand anywhere from two and a half to three and a half feet tall. They have beady black eyes that stare into your soul and can strike fear into the hearts of even the strongest warriors.


These feathered fiends have existed for longer than written history can tell, between 10 to 12 million years, but have always had an unquenchable hatred for humanoids. It is believed that the Great Goose Uprising was caused by societies eating geese as holiday meals, which resulted in geese being replaced by other animals.


Geese often group into flocks to form hunter/gatherer communities but eventually work towards picking off of nearby civilization. They usually mimic ranks shown in the Japanese Yakuza and most other well known mafias. They are highly territorial and aggressive, even going to the lengths of aggressing Red Dragons that were too close to their nests. They honk to communicate, but will also hiss when threatened.

Goose Names[edit]

Geese usually only have one name which isn't distinctive of ranking or age, however a goose might have been gifted a nickname by nearby civilizations that have been tormented by one.

Male: Yтка, Tank, Slate, Milo, Barley

Female: Whitey, Patches, Schimu, Chicory, Bengnit
