-More Clever by Half-
The Lalafell were originally a group of agriculturalist inhabiting the fertile islands of the south sea. With the intro of trans-marine commerce they soon found their way to Eorzea via trade routes. They are now one of the more populous races and are very well established throughout the region, though they remain averse to cold climates.
The short rotund build of the Lalafell belie incredible agility and their seemingly feeble legs are capable of carrying them long distances over any terrain. Many among them are also known for developed and cunning intellects
The Lalafell place a great deal of significance on familial bonds, but are by no means unfriendly to outsiders. This is evidenced by the fact the continue to share prosperous relations with all the other races of Eorzea.
The Roe are maritime people whose largest concentrations are found in the northern sea by the way of which they came to Eorzea.
They posses enormous muscular builds and are known for cultural emphasis and they place competions and unflinching courage, though tender introspective individuals can also be found.
Roe in and around the Limsa Lominsa are typically seamen putting in at port but many have also settled permanently becoming mercenaries,body guards and even pirates by trade, faraway deep in the mountains of Ul'dah, live mountain clans of reclusive roe.
Known as the Hellsguard said to have mastered the magical arts.
-A Tribe of One-
During the age of the endless frost as the sea turned to ice and passage over them became possible Eorzea saw an influx of foreign fauna to her shores, this in turn brought the hunting tribes which subsisted upon them, the modern descendants of whom are today know as Miqo'te.
Since them the Miqo'te have diverged into two physically distinguishable groups- the diurnal seekers of the sun and the nocturnal keepers of the moon, both groups share olfactory sense and powerful leg musculature, results of a long evolution geared towards hunting and predation.
Comparatively few in number they maintain an insular group mentality tending to avoid contact with other races. Many individuals lead isolated lifestyles even when residing in the more populous cities.
