Rabbitfolk (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
The people of the island nation never give much thought to rabbitfolk, but such feelings are not borne of malice; rabbitfolk are the most welcome of the beastfolk and have an easy time living and blending into life in Korrik. Rabbitfolk have been known among other beastfolk as neratuu, which means “we that speak” in Beast Speech and lapines informally.

Little of Body, Big of Heart
Rabbitfolk are small, though not the smallest of Korrik's major races. They are taller than halflings, standing a bit less than three and a half feet tall, but a little more lanky, weighing about 35 pounds. Rabbitfolk from northern climes have white hair on their heads and bodies, while those from southern areas of the island nation will have hair of a darker color. The hair is thickest along the shins, forearms, chest, and elongated ears, resembling a rabbit's. Their faces are also very rabbit-like, showing buck teeth and light colored eyes.
Rabbitfolk like lavish clothing with earthen tones for colors, preferring whites, greens, and brown hues over reds and purples. They have a preference for robes and coats, as well as long sleeve shirts, preferring the comfort they bring.
Rabbitfolk are more widespread than most beastfolk. Though more are among the Union of Gear, and thus, in Cyterria, a fair portion can also be found in Mend and Dragonreach.
Fun with Whimsy
Rabbitfolk are naturally drawn to people. They are extroverted and genuinely enjoy the company of others. This behavior is symbiotic, as most others enjoy the company of rabbitfolk. There is the superstition that rabbitfolk are lucky, so the only time their presence is not particularly welcome is when playing games of chance, such as dice and three-dragon ante. Fortunately, few rabbitfolk live in Ryohan, so this issue arises rarely. In fact, most rabbitfolk live in Gullen, working in their own way as policitcal advisors.
Rabbitfolk are kind and caring, placing a great deal of stock in performing good deeds, but the expectation of reward is not something that enters their minds. They live their lives getting a thrill out of playing pranks and tricks, harboring a lackadaisical approach to life, but this almost never leads to harm of another other than a bruised ego. In fact, they enjoy making people of high standing uncomfortable, but don't do so out of malice, merely annoyance for such stiffness.
Rabbitfolk are well-liked and mainly serve in public function where they can affect the greatest outcomes, such as diplomats, advocates, and sometimes politicians. They are convincing liars, but it's not something they like doing.
A Brave New World
Rabbitfolk will seek adventure because of the new experiences it provides. Entering caves and dens, exploring ancient ruins, and learning of lost worlds and civilizations ignites a rabbitfolk's curiosity to no end. It takes little to influence a rabbitfolk to head out into the wide world, but they won't do so without forethought. They enjoy anything new and will relish new locales and sensations, viewing any of this with a lust for life.
Rabbitfolk prefer to take human names, though some will adopt names derived from Beast Speech
Common Names: Any human name, as well as Cenaav (He/She Reveals), Cretetuu (They Scream), Vecetuu (I Whisper), Venaaj (I Wander)
