Physical Description[edit]

Quarlish are like humans in build, but slightly slender and taller. They have white hair and very pale skin. A commoner could say, they look like an albino. The colour of their eyes ranges from typical colours like brown or green to colours like red or violet. The other races envy the women of the Quarlish for their beauty and fine faces. The men of Quar are typically muscular and strong in build with faces cut from stone. They reach a height of 7ft.


The Quarlish come from a land named Quar. Where they live in their white cities with golden ceilings. But this wasn't always the case. There was a time, in which mere humans ruled over this land as ursupers. They used the Quarlish als as workers on their own land, took education and knowledge from them as well as all their rights.

One day a single man started a revolt which sparked hope over the people of Quar like a spark in hay and the Quarlish stood up and fought for their freedom until the humans were gone and they could start living their own lives in their own land.

Soon after they found that the ground was rich in gold and other rare minerals. So the lands became rich and so became the people. They told the other races, what the humans did to them and so no one wanted to trade with the humans anymore, the humans went poor and starved in the end.


The Quarlish live in tribes which are led by the eldest of the members. Each tribe lives in an individual city which is called a hold. In society there is a strong dedication to community because there is a saying, that only together they are strong. Especially with their telepathic communication they tend to have others around them. They also honour their ancestors every day because it were them, that brought the Quarlish out of the slavery.

The fear of slavery is strong in everything they do, in the tribes there are no hierarchies, the oldest of the tribes only give advises not orders. So no one stands above another. Quar is a land, rich on mountains, which makes climbing a sport, performed by the majority of Quarlish.

They also favor grace and accuracy over brute force. The way of dancing with a sword is an art especially performed by female members of the tribes. But also other weapons are used.

Quarlish Names[edit]

The names of the Quarlish are in their own tongue but they try to keep themselves a second name which can be pronounced by other races. For this they often choose elven Names or they use the Name of their profession. Should they have more professions than one, it is a common way to melt them together.

Female: Eilrel, Faleth, Kealen, Megra, Yesna
