Sasquatch (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Darting in and out of the light- a hulking figure cloaked by the forest- he emerges from the treeline, and for the first time is viewed by the world.

Sasquatches are large ape-like humanoids that are covered in a thick fur. In areas with no fur, such as the stomach and chest, hands, feet, and face, sasquatches have a tough, and often scarred, hide. This hide is their leathery, thick skin. Their fur can be a range of colors, although it is generally a dirty orange shade. It can often be black, grey or brown, however, and more brightly colored sasquatches are immensely rare. Along with their fur, their skin can also alter in color, from the general dirty cream color to browns and blacks. Lighter skinned Sasquatches have also been documented.
The sasquatches are mysterious creatures, and their history is widely unknown. It was thought for a while that they shared common origins with humans and other ape-like creatures due to their similarity in build and anatomy. They have been sighted in the wilderness for hundreds of years, although they have only recently truly revealed themselves to the world. Due to their mythical nature, it has been suggested that they are mystical in origin, although they could simply be reclusive forest creatures.
Sasquatches seemingly have no society. They wander the forests alone and are never seen with other sasquatches. Because of this, it is unknown as to how they reproduce, or how sasquatches are raised, as no young Sasquatch has ever been sighted with another. They are, however, known to be only seen within healthy forests, with thick foliage and fertile earth. Thus, seeing a sasquatch might be an indicator that a forest is in good shape. It is theorized sasquatches might be druidic or nature-loving like firbolgs and wood elves.
Documented names of sasquatches are shown below. They are usually given by people who nab pictures of them, so these names can be quite funny. Sasquatches seem to communicate through grunts and moans, so their actual names are usually unknown.
Male: Mook, Stub, Bub, Rond
Female: Nagg, Stel, San, Ryn
