Gnome

GnĊmii

Gnomes are very small primatoid sophonts native to the Eewalese subchain of Thalassaterria. They are very reclusive, though in recent centuries they have been forced to abandon true isolationism by the advances of the Eian Empire.

Basic Information

Anatomy

Gnomes are minuscule humanoid sophonts, and while they have adapted bipedal cursoriality they also retain the prehensile tails of their ancestors. Gnomes are quite hairy to boot, with both sexes sporting impressive facial hair.

Additional Information

Geographic Origin and Distribution

Gnomes are endemic to the island of Eewalo and its surrounding subchain within Thalassaterria, though they can be occasionally found elsewhere in the archipelago.
