In the reckonings of most worlds, humans are the youngest of the common races, late to arrive on the world scene and short-lived in comparison to dwarves, elves, and dragons. Perhaps it is because of their shorter lives that they strive to achieve as much as they can in the years they are given. Or maybe they feel they have something to prove to the elder races, and that’s why they build their mighty empires on the foundation of conquest and trade. Whatever drives them, humans are the innovators, the achievers, and the pioneers of the worlds.

Geographic Origin and Distribution
One of the most populous of the races you will likely run into Humans in even the furthest reaches of the world. With an almost insatiable thirst for adventure, many Humans will look to leave their homes in order to grow their own legacy. The country of Aprax is the true Human homeland, the capital of which is the Human city of Ondor.
Civilization and Culture
Culture and Cultural Heritage
Humans are the most versatile of the races within Demis. Tireless achievers they will push themselves outside their comfort zones to reach independent as well as soceital goals. Though they have their own personal cultures, Humans are the race most interested in taking part in the cultures of other races. That being said, once a Human decides on a course for their life they rarely deviate. Having one of the shortest lifespans of the Primer Races they don't have the capacity to focus on multiple specialties. Instead they will pour their energy into what interests them the most. Lineage is considered to be very important especially to other races. One elf has the potential to outlive generations of a family of humans. Knowing this, Elves, Dwarves, and other long living races will depend on namesake to know who to trust and work with. Gaining that trust in the first place can be difficult however, as Humans are generally seen as rash and spontaneous. They are incredibly loyal however so having Human allies can prove to be some of the greatest relationships.
Interspecies Relations and Assumptions
Incredibly curious and accepting, most half-breeds within the world are half human. Humans don't seem to have any qualms with any specific race and will often choose to live among them and mirror their cultures.
