Habitat: Adaptive, prefer mild regions. Sometimes found in Hotazhek Volcano.
Social Structure: A subspecies of goblins, they live alongside their brethren as equals, with only their specialized skills and appearance setting them apart.
Reproduction: Lutin reproduce sexually, and though they are compatible with goblins, the two will not mate, as both parties believe it will weaken the offspring, so although they do often share romantic relations, they find one of their own kind to procreate with. Males are not very paternal (save to their own genetic offspring), but females are, and sometimes adopt young from other races (even humans) and raise them.
Appearance: Short, thin humanoids with green skin and knobby features.
Magic Use: Like goblins, lutins almost never use magic, and those that do often are sent to join the researchers in Hotazhek Volcano, in an attempt to learn how to use ritual magic that has long been lost from them.
Additional: Pessimists who prefer using axes in combat. They are very military-oriented in culture, even in times of 'peace', and organize their entire culture around military rank. They have orcs as slaves, and their allies, the lutin, interbreed with them to make random full-blood goblins or lutin. Goblins themselves are eager to work with other monsters, save the harpies, who are their rivals.
A goblin would die before he betrayed his commanding officer, and would even kill his family (unhappily) if given the order by an officer he respected highly. Despite this, the males are very paternal, and a goblin male is likely to adopt an orphan before the blood is even cleaned, even if the orphan is a human.
Goblins are highly proud, and never willingly breed with humans. If a female is found pregnant with a human's child, the female is put to death. If a male has had relations with a human female, the female will be abducted and her child will be aborted forcibly under intense drugs, and returned to her home. The male will be neutered, so that he can still serve in the army.
For goblins, the army is everything. Their main goal as a people is to gain their own lands by whatever means possible. They are a desperate race with dropping numbers.
Their primary habitats are in Tradzhek, Kotazhek, and Fayezhek. Those found on the mainland are usually in very small groups, typically foraging parties. They avoid Driazhek because that is where the strength of Saldecla's army is.
