Pushed out from mainland Ganima in prehistoric times by a horrible plague, Yunish ruins can be found deep in the wilderness and under cities. The last of the Yuns were pushed to the north and forced into the water. Some made it to an island to the north, despite no proper boats to carry them. Here, they met up with some previously stranded Yuns and although a bottleneck event had occurred, they flourished in this new environment, and created a rich culture, thousands of years old. Their most notable quality to outsiders is the removal of children's eyes to heighten their other senses and learn how to see energy, magic and spirits.
Anatomy & Morphology
Humanoid with similar coloring to elves, the main difference being face/head shape and the horns on their heads.
Life span: 50-200 years
Growth Rate & Stages
Puberty begins at 7, ends at 15
Body grows until 18
Brain development finishes at 35
Middle-aged at 60
Becomes elderly at 75
Ecology and Habitats
Since their homeland is so bitterly cold, the Yuns have taken to living in and nearby geysers and hot springs.
The Yuns live in close knit villages governed by elders and the revered adults of the population. There is an appointed leader who will always have the final word.
Prominent bones (jaw, cheekbone, forehead ridge) are possible-- not always visible. Horns of varying size and number can grow from these prominent bones, and throughout the top of their heads.
Geographic Origin and Distribution
Currently: Northern island of Ganima Prehistorically: over the entire continent Occasionally, a Yun can be found throughout the world, although most don't relate them to their culture, since these are the descendants of rare travelers. Even rarer is finding a Yun who has traveling through the world with their eyes sewn shut.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
When trained properly (removal of eyes and trained in society), their other senses are heightened and they gain the sixth sense of seeing energy and spirits.
