Sweet sweet, so good to eat, but don't you dare!

Physical Description[edit]

Nami are humanoids constructed of sweets. They can take on a variety of shapes and forms as a result, depending on what candy makes up thei body. But the composition ratios are largely the same despite cosmetic changes. They are roughly a third gummy, a third hard candy, and a third liquid goo center. While they may sound like construct beings made from the fever dream of a wizard with a sweet-tooth, they are more like the living constructs that warforged are. The gooey percentage of their bodies is considered vital fluid and makes up their internal organ workings. The rest of their body has some gummy flesh and hard candy bones, eyes and maybe things like claws and teeth. Like candy, they can be a variety of wacky colors.


The nami were originally constructed by an enigmatic figure who was a renowned candy maker. His recipe was stolen, however, by his rival confectionaries and thus propagated in construction. Nami were originally made to be a friend to children. They were as much a snack as they were a play pal. But this life of servitude did not satisfy the nami, and they all seemed to pull up stakes and vanish from their owner's homes overnight. It is perhaps part of their hidden design to develop free will, which they did. They do not desire to be eaten or merely played with.


The nami are fairly unknown in the world due to their rarity. They cannot survive in areas of great heat or they will melt. As such, they prefer places that are consistently cold. But if it is too cold, they may be frozen stiff. So they often sometimes have to migrate to find the right spot. When they do so, they move under the most inconspicuous circumstances to avoid running into anyone who may want to eat them. In their groups, there are mainly two divisions: warriors and nonwarriors. Warrior nami are the ones who defend their group as the muscle. Nonwarriors are more like breeders and other miscellaneous roles not covered in the group. Those who venture out do so at their own risk. They are often ingrained with fear due to the cautionary tales they have been raised with.
