Humans are the dominant sapient species in Atamor.

Basic Information

Anatomy

Humans are a bipedal mammalian species. They have two hands with opposable hands, which allow them to hold objects.

Growth Rate & Stages

During the first 20-25 years of life humans grow physically and develop mentally. That period can be divided into 2 phases, 10 years each. The first period is childhood during which humans develop basic skills. In most cultures childhood is considered as a happy time when humans learn through play. The second phase is adolescence. During that phase humans mature sexually and develop more complex skills, which allow them to live on their own.

After adolescence comes adulthood, which is the longest period of a human's life. It can be said it lasts until the death. However, there can be distinguished one more period, seniority. During that period humans are mostly not as fit as they were in the past.

Ecology and Habitats

Humans prefer a moderately warm climate, but thanks to technology they can survive in hotter and colder environments.

Additional Information

Social Structure

Humans are social creatures. In order to function properly they need to be surrounded by other humans. In most cultures a big emphasis is laid on family as the most important social unit.

Facial characteristics

In males facial hair can appear during the adolescence period. Their length is mostly determined by genetics. However, in order to look good humans are regulating the length mechanically.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Humans percieve the world with 5 senses, which are sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. In most humans none of the senses is stronger than others. However, humans with one sense weaker or non-functional are able to compensate for that with other senses.

Magic

Some humans have the ability to use magic.
