Chapter I: Humans

Race: Human (Homosapiens)

Danger rating: *****

Kingdom: Animalia

Class: Mammalia

Rarity: Common

Life-span: The oldest human to be recorded was a 150, however the average is about 130 due to the evolution.

Size: Varied

Diet: Omnivores.

Markings: Some humans have been known to be born with strange marks upon their body they call 'birth marks' these can come in many shapes, sizes and colours. They have also been known to tattoo themselves or pierce their flesh, this is not a natural marking however.

Appearance: Peach or brown coloured creatures with two legs and a head full of hair. This hair has also been known to grow around their face creating mustaches and beards. Humans change colour depending upon the sun. If there is no sun, humans turn white. When there is abundant sun humans turn brown, they call this 'tanning.' This is a natural defence against the sunlight that can burn and injure their skin. They do not have paws or talons, but hands (which have five fingers on each) and feet, (which have five toes on each.) But a human's appearance varies quite a lot, sometimes even their young can look nothing like the parents. Their eyes are situated in the middle-top of their head with a nose and mouth underneath that. They do however have very dimmed senses.

History; Humans have been around for quite a while, although they are the youngest race in the world. The originally fought with the elves for space as they began to chop down trees to make space for their settlements. This made them very unpopular with the elves, driving them into the deeper forests. Humans now are very heavy industrialised, although not as much as the dwarves that live in the high mountains. Although rather small and quite weak compared to other races they have survived a long time. They should not be underestimated.
Young; Humans normally have a single young (child) however they have been known to have two, (twins) three, (triplets) all the way up to eight kids at once. It is uncertain how long a human stays with their young as it varies and is normally up to the young, when they leave. Human young are normally very energetic and attract trouble quite well, therefore it is advised that you always stay away from human children if you are not, in fact, human yourself.
Mating; Humans stay with their mates for a very long time, usually, but this is also undetermined. Humans 'bind' themselves to the one they love by marriage. But this bond can be broken and humans can find another partner. They can also have many partners at one time however this is frowned upon. Normally a male human would go out to find work and to provide a habitat for the humans while the female provides food and a comforting hand.

Combat: A human can have many ways of combat, separated by what they pursue.
Mage: A mage is a human that has been further evolved and can use magic. This is not a choice as the power to wield magic is randomly distributed throughout genetics. However in recent times there have been less random cases and the magic gene is more restricted to families.
Warrior: A warrior human, also known as a soldier, goes to war with other soldier humans. They normally wield swords and shields and wear heavy armor to protect their weak skin. These are normally the most noble of the humans and very well respected.
Hunter: A hunter collects food for the human 'town,' or 'village,' a human city has no need for hunters as they get their food from trading with towns and villages. A hunter has more defined senses and normally uses bows and arrows, along with carrying a hunting knife.
Bandit: A bandit, or thief, normally use daggers, sometimes crossbows or bows and arrows. These people rarely kill and only use their weapons to threaten people. A more severe bandit will kill the person before looting their body.

Occupations: A human may have many occupations, or 'jobs' some run in the blood, such as being a king or queen, (leader of the humans) others can be chose and range from servitude to making weapons. Normally male's are the ones to get a job while the women become cooks and home-dwellers. However, the humans are changing and this soon will become untrue.

Fact: Humans don't always fall in love with the opposite gender. Humans who fall in love with the same gender are called 'homosexuals,' which then splits into two categories; 'gays' (male homosexuals and 'lesbians' (female homosexuals.) There are also people who fall in love with both genders called 'bisexuals.'
