A charismatic and dexterous fox-like people, the Rusco were rescued by the deity Natsuko from "the Below" following an uprising against Vyse Tyranal in the second century of the Era of Inner Flame (EoIF). Now, the Rusco are looked upon with mistrust and confusion as their race may be free but still holds the taint of the shadow plane.
Unconcerned with worldly matters, Rusco focus on the things which bring excitement to their own lives. Having truly no place to call home, Rusco are very independent creatures. Much of this comes from the narrow glances and furrowed brows commonplace when other races interact with a Rusco. Erenel is full of mistrust towards the fox-like creatures - perhaps with good reason. All Rusco come from the hellish plane, the Below, forced into the armies of Vyse Tyranal, the Fallen Elf during the Shadows Wars until the Rusco's escape. Their bloodline marks their reputation as a race of untrustworthy creatures, though over time many Rusco have made strides in mending the divide. Thankfully, Rusco can find solitude with both the followers of Natsuko and the Matron of Ravens, two deities responsible for their freedom.
Rusco resemble bi-pedal fox with a slim build standing between 3ft and 4ft tall, and weighing around 40 to 50 pounds. They have cunning eyes that range in color from blue, green, brown and yellow. Many believe a Rusco with red eyes is to be avoided as their infernal ancestry may be bubbling to the surface. Rusco are red, brown or grey furred, often with undertones of a lighter color with an expressive plush tail. Some Rusco grow beards, and many adorn their ears with piercings and rings.
