Oreads are stocky with shiny skin and stony hair and are natural descendants of mortal humanoids and creatures made of earth elements. While some hide their features, others show them off on purpose, remaining honest about their heritage.

Raised by humans, most love peace and quiet and feel the need to be in secluded places where they can easily focus on their thoughts. Though they dislike most of the unexpected actions or chaotic decisions, the young ones do enjoy adventuring.

Most middle-aged Oreads start feeling an almost irresistible urge for adventuring as if something was pulling them, and through such actions, their calm personality turns into passion, making others remember the names like Etran, Techinsa, and Bersha.

As descendants of humans and elemental earth creatures, Oreads are calm and collected beings of a stocky build, with shiny skin and stony hair. They prefer solitude and bask in peace and quiet, although young and middle-aged ones tend to go on adventures.

Think about where the character was born, how did they spend their early years, how the adventuring life called to them, what might their goals be, and think of a name worthy of the pilgrimage they are surely about to take.
