Rasuls

Baby-eaters, dedicated to Mar. The ancients exiled them to the Barren Island for the crime of exterminating the Voiceless.
— highly apocryphal history overheard in a Gepeshian market
  The Rasul people of Nadzhamal are generally believed to be violent monsters, mostly due to their ferocious appearance. They do not do much to combat this impression, keeping to themselves on their island home across the Inner Sea, but they have a rich culture with a deep arcane tradition.

Basic Information

Anatomy & Morphology

Wide faces top thick necks and broad bodies with two arms and two stocky legs. Their lower canines usually protrude, appearing as short tusks.

Additional Information

Geographic Origin and Distribution

Almost all Rasuls live on Nadzhamal Island, though some do adventure in the wider world.

Average Intelligence

Most assume them to be stupid brutes, but their intelligence spans a normal range. Generally unknown to the outside world, they have a large number of arcane scholars with a complex tradition of research and information distribution called the Veraka Amer.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Their excellent night vision is believed to stem from an ancient time when they lived underground.

Civilization and Culture

Gender Ideals

Females are believed to carry more innate magic than males, though this has not been proven conclusively. As a result, women are expected to study the arcane arts. As soon as children are weaned, their care is entrusted to the father so that the mother may focus on her studies. Men are expected to be patient, cunning, and empathic, while women are ideally intelligent, fierce, and outspoken.   Priests of a religious group dedicated to Taqtuv identify as a third gender that does not rely on physical attributes for primary classification. Known as delhalit, they have a specific style of dress and mannerisms unique to them.
