Moogles are usually characterized by their small wings, pink or white fur, and a pom-pom on their heads. Moogles' "pom-pom" is a red ball of fur on a thin, wiry antenna that springs from their heads, which they are sensitive about being touched. A moogle's wings are commonly dark, gothic, or a bat-like design, as to juxtapose their otherwise harmless appearance and bubbly nature. Moogles resemble small mammals, ranging from rodents to felines and bears, or marsupials. A moogle's size varies from several feet tall to only a foot tall if not less. In comparison to humans, moogles are universally diminutive.
Moogles are one of the commonly occurring creatures of magic across the worlds. They have been known to aid heroes of good since the time when gods walked the earth. As a result, creatures of evil would often stalk them and murder their villages. Thus, moogles have been driven into secluded areas around the worlds, but they remain a faithful friend of the forces of good. They often are glimpsed here and there selling their wares and helping warriors find their way. Baby moogles, called mooglings, fly by using their magic which generates a field of invisible bubbles that carry them aloft. They have a following of mainly children who find them adorable, ad so they are usually featured in logos and as plush toys.
Because of their size, moogles try to get along with everyone so they don't end up as casualties. As they are rather weak, they tend to gather in numbers to bolster themselves. They have communities across many worlds, like in the Rift, Chrysalis, and such. They are adept at fitting into most communities, especially with humans, gnomes, and dwarves and making themselves welcome and valuable. Moogles are most commonly found in human lands, though some inhabit places that are hard for anyone to reach. Regardless, they are usually seen as a good omen and very helpful to travelers, as they often also cart goods about as merchants. Some moogle antennae allow them to communicate with other moogles over vast distances. These moogles rarely form communities, instead having a network for business.
Moogles tend to vary in temperament but a majority of interactions have painted a benevolent image of the critters. Many are shy and withdrawn, living far from others. They are therefore usually led by the ones who have the leader's attitude, who often becomes their village's reigning king. Their physical weakness forces them to be crafty and submissive a lot. In Valhalla, for example, they are often acting tough and picking fights they cannot possibly win, just to make themselves the butt of their own jokes. There are also very straight-laced moogles who usually are the business type that one encounters on the road. They are very greedy and love money, going as far as selling expired potions at half price, with variable outcomes.
Moogles often have names that are either short and cute, or alluding to food and puns.
