Gaeltic (Gale-tic)

The Gaeltic people are separated across two locations in the northwest of Auld, though their cultures are mostly similar. There are the Gaeltic of the Duivern peninsula on the western coast of Arvertaine and the Gaeltic of the Waelcym Islands off the western coast. Though the two groups share a common heritage, the history of human civilization has created a divergence in their cultures and appearances in a small manner. The Gaeltic people are renowned for their musical inclinations and festive nature. They are known as a people who love a bit of the craic.   Average amongst humans in height and weight, the Gaeltic people have fair skin across both groups. The island based people are known to have lighter features, eyes ranging from hazel to sky blue and hair from the lightest of brown to bright red to golden blonde. Meanwhile, the peninsular ones have eyes of deep blues, greens, and light browns, and hairs ranging from dusky blonde to auburn and deeper chestnut hues.    For names, all Celtic languages (Irish, Scottish, Breton).
