Humans

As stated, Humans are the most populous of all the races (especially in Maleos) and are the standard all others are compared. Human are the most diverse of any other race; while each other race tends towards one type of profession or characteristic, Humans have no preference and can easily adapt to any situation or environment. This can create a bit of arrogance but also compassion for others.

Humans are also the most difficult to define within common parameters. About the only common theme is that Humans love to talk, either about themselves or to lead others. This makes them tend towards stronger personalities and relates skills and powers but woe be the opponent who thinks a Human will only talk. In a fight most prefer to have Humans on their side; while a Human may not present as brutal or powerful, they are strong in a fight and will not shy away from confrontation. They also are the only race without a “Lesser” Characteristic. While some may prefer one over another, Humans will remain as balanced as possible in all ways.
