Native to the continent of Fairn, the fauns are a mysterious and wild race whose origins are uncertain. The oral traditions of their people state that they were born from the "Regals," the gods whose statues rise across the entire continent. This has never been confirmed, though, due largely to the lack of a written history of Fairn, and it is instead believed that they were likely an offshoot of humanity.
Physically, fauns resemble humans almost perfectly. The only major difference comes from the two horns that sit atop their head, which in modern times are largely vestigial. In ancient times, though, these were likely used in defense against the blood elves and orcs that overran Fairn. It is due to these monstrous predatory races that the fauns are, to this day, a reclusive and quiet people. Even their magic focus around deception and illusion, to better allow them a chance to survive in wild and untamed lands.
Height: - 5-6 feet
Unusual Characteristics: - Twin horns protruding from the upper portion of the forehead *These horns are often far sharper on females than males, likely to assist in protecting young children from predators.
Coloring: - Darker shades of brown, to better allow for blending into the environment. Some fauns even have patches of mossy green skin, again likely to assist in camouflage.
Lifespan: - 70-90 years
Magic: - Ability to cast illusions or mildly influence the minds of other individuals. - Due to their similarity to humans, it is technically possible for fauns to connect to the magical field, though this requires great practice. As such, it is likely possible for fauns to be chosen as sorcerers as well, though there is little evidence to support this has ever happened before.
Worshiped gods: - Regals
Other notes: - It is extremely common for fauns to bond with aniskin, as both species are dedicated to survival at all costs. In ancient times, it was almost a rite of passage for fauns to complete their bond, though in modern times as aniskin have become rarer, bonding with one has become more of a symbol of status or luck.
