Species Profile: Wrallot

Physical Characteristics

Wrallots have big, round heads that sag downward on the sides, the ends pointing slightly downward making it crescent shaped. Hair typically grows here, making the points look longer than they are. Big, black, dot eyes are a little above the middle of the head and the rounded mouth is near the bottom; the front of the face is fairly flat. The head is quite round with the bottom smoothly curving into the bottom, with a short neck that makes the head appear to be stacked onto the torso.

The torso is slightly round and its height is about the width of the head. The arms are thin and end in a round, fingered hand. The legs are somewhat thicker than the arms and end in wide feet shaped like a half-circle. Both sets of appendages are about the length of the torso. Their coloring is generally light gray, with some becoming bluish or purplish, and the average height is 1.5 meters tall. Wrallots live for about 60 years and are mature at about 10.

History and Culture

Wrallots live in a series of close-knit villages throughout the northern forests of Zhop. They’ve had little contact with outsiders and learned to fend for themselves. They evolved close-knit groups consisting of lots of cooperation and looking after one another, which has actually made them generally peaceable towards others, if not somewhat suspicious; they usually show travelers compassion, but will keep a keen eye on them.

Children are raised as a whole by a village and often remain at the village daycare while the parents are gathering food or doing other work, with a few wrallots at the daycare looking after them. The children always return to their parents at the end of the day for the evening, and in most villages bands are placed on the children to identify each child and their parents.

Wrallots do not really have religion. They believe that they were not created by anyone, there wasn’t a beginning, nor will there be an end, and they have no purpose on the planet and are just there to fend and survive, but that this frees them to create their own destiny and purpose.
