The Gate-Stones of Lunestriel
The Quarren were among the original races that called Lunestriel their home before the arrival of the Dowmarii, which means “Portal-Born” in Ancient Lunerii. Quarren are an ancient race and one of the oldest of the Lomarii, meaning “Lunar-Born” in Ancient Lunerii.
Quarren are squid-like humanoids. They stand at around 4’10" to 6’0" feet in height and weight 100 to 240 pounds. Their heads are squid-like, with at least four tentacles on their faces and leathery skin. They have small mouths with two fang-like teeth jutting out from either side, and a small tongue sticking out in between. Quarren have two protrustions sticking out from the side of their faces, with gill-like structures that are actually used for hearing. Holes in the side of their necks are used for breathing. They also have a pair of sack-like organs on the back of their heads. Quarren are able to descend to depths of 500 feet without needing aid breathing. Their hands had five fingers ending in either suction cups or sharp claws. Quarren skin tones were typically orange, green, or purple. Their eyes were always shimmering blue. They mature by age 12 and live 90 years.
Proud and self-centered as a race, Quarren are rather xenophobic. Practical and concervative, Quarren tend to live in isolated settlements apart from other races. They are a relatively closed society and don’t mix with other groups. They are strong and wise, but they have difficulty relating to other races. Quarren are pragmatic and like reliability and trustworthiness. Given enough time, they can accept others into their lives and can become loyal allies. But don’t except a Quarren to stick up for someone they don’t know. They prefer to mind their own business and keep to themselves.
