Basic Information

Biological Traits

Humans are an intelligent species. They came in two sexes, male and female, and gave birth to live young. They're bipedal beings with a bilateral symmetry, having a front and a back end, as well as an upside and downside. Their bodies were comprised of a torso with a head and four limbs attached to it. The upper limbs, or arms, ended in hands which had five fingers each; the lower ones, called legs, ended in feet. The human fingers had multiple points of articulation, and one of them was an opposable thumb that allowed for fine manipulation. Finally, they had one head perched atop their torso. Like most living beings, humans needed to take in oxygen from their envionment to live.   Humans had little hair on their bodies. Most of it was concentrated on the scalp as well as the lower portions of the faces of most males, though these regions were often shaved in various patterns, either for hygiene or self-expression (strips of concentrated hair, referred to as "brows," were also located above the eyes, and were used in non-verbal communication). Human skin tones ranged from dark brown, through lighter shades, to pale. Human eyes came in shades of blue, green, or brown. Occasionally, humans with purple or even red eyes could be encountered.

Era of Dragons

Humans, and other intelligent beings, were seen as inferiors and food all the same as the lesser animals.   This is not public knowledge, and the mystery surrounding the true situation of this past era continues to persist into the current age. Who or what has ensured this, and those few knowledgeable of this reality, remain unseen and unknown.
