Humans come in different sizes, their height ranging from 5” to slightly over 7”. Their weight can equally vary, as some are skinny as 100 pounds, while others are well over 200. They all have different physical appearances and tempers.

Humans can live pretty much anywhere and, in fact, they do so. They have always accommodated to the new surroundings, assimilating themselves wherever they went. They are quick to adopt or form their own traditions and laws.

There are good and bad, but almost all of them are greedy, at least to a certain point. They can easily fall prey to almost any sort of addiction, which is based on the aforementioned trait. Best friends or worst enemies, sometimes even both at once.
