Appearance and Lifespan
Halflings tend to stand between 3’ 2” and 3’ 7” tall and weigh between 35 and 50 pounds. Most have average skin tones, eyes, and hair colors, though, as always, there are exceptions. They usually resemble a small child between the ages of 4 and 7, but with a bit of weather to their face as they get older. They usually reach maturity at the age of 30 and live to be between 160 and 180 years old.
History and Nature
Halflings are interesting creatures with a mysterious past. No one is sure of their origins, though they resemble humans in every way possible, except for their height and weight. Even more curious is the way most of them tend to act; they run towards danger to see how well they can get away from it.
These small human-like beings inhabit many towns and cities throughout Afloria, blending in with many different civilizations as if they were their own. They can fit in with humans, elves, and orcs alike. Most will take part in the day-to-day society like the other races, while a few others will choose to take on the nomadic lifestyle.
Their personalities can charm and cheer even the angriest of people to cross their paths. Don’t let their cherubic features fool you, however, as they can be quick and cunning opponents. Halflings are known to be some of the best pickpockets to have ever walked the lands of Afloria due to their tiny, nimble fingers and unassuming appearance.
