Mouse (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Oh my gosh he is so cute!
WHO SAID THAT!?
|Reepicheep from Narnia, Sourced from WikiNarnia|
The typical mouse does not actually have huge ears like Jerry. Rather, they have thin small ears on the sides of their heads. Their eyes are small and beady and their body is covered in short fur. All mice have heads that point like a snout and end in a fleshy nose and whiskers. Some have buckteeth. Mice are well known for their naked tails which resemble worms. Their bodies are pellet shaped, lacking a distinct waist or hips. Their hands and feet are naked paws. They have prehensile hands to hold a sword fitting their size.
Mice were originally simple creatures that lived as all animals did. They survived and lived without much thought. Gods did not exist to them and they showed reverence for anything but their own satisfied bellies. One day, under a storm did they finally raise their heads. Amidst the horrific tempest, they discovered the power of god. Aslan, the guiding light of the world, granted them enlightened minds and sheltered them from the storm. From him, they learned of speech, chivalry, sword fighting and many other civilized aspects. They pleged their lives for the king and so became his knights.
Mice tend to appear quite chivalrous, as Aslan had taught them. However this is only an act. They know their size is ridiculous and ridiculed and so they fear no underhanded tactic. One would be surprised of their repertoire in battle. A mouse may challenge someone to a duel, but the moment they turn their back they would make their attack. This trickery is what has allowed their species to survive as long as they have. They are descended from the mice of old that lived in the walls of houses and in the grass of fields. Over the centuries, they came to develop a strong sense of pride as the knights of Aslan. They have no empire to call their own, though you can come across the occasional mice village... if you don't accidentally trample it first.
Literally just mice.

Scurry. Mice can move quickly with a burst in step when needed. When you move on your turn in combat, you can double your speed until the end of the turn. Once you use this trait, you can't use it again until you move 0 feet on one of your turns.
Naturally Stealthy. You can Hide when only lightly obscured or when you are next to a creature at least one size larger than you.
