Lepus (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
|“||This is why we murder our rabbits...||”|
The lepi are creatures that resemble humanoids with lapine traits. Their bodies are covered in fur, and they have long claws like rabbits, with back-bent legs that are very strong to jump. Their faces are a bit disturbing, with a pair of long sharp incisors front and center. The face resembles that of a rodent or rabbit somewhat, with shiny red eyes and a little twitchy nose. Lepine ears extend from further up their skull and grow upward like that of a rabbits. Their tailbone area usually has a small, short, poofy tail like that of rabbits.
The lepi are believed to be former almirajes from the Feywild. While these lapine fodder of the Feywild have been known in the world before, some of them undergo strange transformations when they cross over. The lepi were originally seen as bogeymen of the woods, appearing like strange quadrupedal humanoids that prowled the woods like animals. Later, their villages were discovered in the dense forests and they were normalized as a race. They eventually came into alliances with the elves for protection from orc encroachment on the forest lands.
Lepi live in forest villages that are partially situated underground or near hills where their warrens are. These warrens are where their squirming young are birthed and raised by communal mothers. Males typically go out to find food as well while the largest females serve as village guards. Lepi diet consists largely of the forest vegetation and bounty, though they are known to be frugivores when plants are not available. They do not like changing seasons, preferring a consistent climate to sustain food year round. Lepi litters are huge and depend a lot on the communal effort of everyone to raise.
