A small, foxlike humanoid race that live in well-developed and civilized settlements in various locations. They tend to be very religious and faithful to whatever god they are tied to, but won't go as far as interposing it on others due to their usually kind demeanor. Though not all raposa are like this, some abandoned religion to pursue knowledge in attempt to take fate into their own hands.

Physical Description[edit]

A male Raposa as depicted in Drawn to Life

Usually quite small in size and stature, they are known for their rather long ears similar to that of a fennec fox, which are roughly fives inches long on their own, with only the male's fur completely covering their ears. Said fur is usually a variety of colors ranging from more oranges, rust, and yellow colors to greys or silvers, though the color does not appear to be dependent on age. Despite the animal-like characteristics, their fur does not cover their face, leaving their small eyes, button nose, and mouth visible.


Raposa believe to have been one of the first races created by the their god that they simply refer to as "The Creator" though it is not specified which god in any of their "Books of Life" which are considered a "holy book" to the raposa. This caused much confusion and in fighting amongst the earliest of raposa tribes. Though they eventually resolved it by allowing "The Creator" to be to up the interpretation of each individual raposa, in which they may choose who to worship once they reach maturity. Some raposa, however, choose not to follow a god either due to not wanting their fate controlled by a higher power or the fact a universal god was never chosen. These raposa were labeled as "Deviated" and earned a poor reputation early on in the tribal days due to mass book burnings of "Books of Life" orchestrated by them. Sadly, due to this modern day "Deviated" have to keep their position secret regardless of how pure or malicious their intent


Raposa tend to live in towns comprised mostly of their own kind, though they do get along well with other races due the their usually kind and cute demeanor. They are in many ways similar to humans in the fact they are quite adaptive and versatile, being able to perform a variety of tasks and live in a wide range of locations without much of a problem. Besides this, they are considered very religious due to their strong belief in being one of the first races ever created, but they do no gloat or interpose this ideal on other races due to wanting to keep a good relationship with them. Not just that, but they in general prefer to keep religion to themselves and their communities and aren't usually very open about it with others unless its another raposa, since they are quite loose and don't have a universal religion amongst their kind. Regardless, deviated raposa are still looked down upon for not choosing a religion as well as due to very poor representation in the past with the earliest of deviated being rather violent.

Raposa names can be a wide variety of things, but tend to be either food, various objects, onomatopoeia, or a modern human name sometimes spelt a bit differently than the traditional form.
