Physical Description[edit]

Small flightless robust Avians. Green and yellow feathering offer excellent camouflage in wooded and tropical enviorments. Their hands are hidden under their fluffy feathering. Their beaks act as a hook when climbing. What they lack in flight they make up for in a very quick movement speed.


Originally from isolated tropical islands, now they are found in most port cities or ship crews. When found away from ports, they are often in simple farming communities.


Often in small peaceful tribes, there is rarely any conflict with the outside world. Chiefs are chosen by a representative from each age group, with often the elderly and youth with a more of a powerful vote.
