Notes The Ratkin, in terms of physical appearance, look almost exactly like large bipedal rats; roughly man-sized, with the typical specimen being between four and five feet tall on average. Their body posture is often hunched, a trait that was developed from the cramped conditions of their natural habitat. Though physically weaker than most races, Ratkin are naturally faster, more agile, and natural diggers. As such, a Ratkin can never truly go head to head with a human, and due to their cowardly nature, they will more likely run than engage in direct conflict. Only when cornered will a Ratkin fight with a reckless sense of rage. The skeletal structure of a Ratkin is generally light-weight, giving them a greater degree of speed, movement, and natural reflexes than a typical human. This is further aided by possessing extremely strong back legs that help to propel a Ratkin at twice the speed of a normal man. The skeleton itself is also highly flexible, enabling them to slide through even the most cramped environment with relative ease. However, due to their physiology, the typical Ratkin is often weaker in terms of physical strength in comparison to other intelligent races within the known world, so much so that a healthy human male often can easily outweigh and outmatch a Ratkin in terms of sheer physical strength alone. Like similar animals, Ratkin have acute hearing that allows them to hear sounds at a greater distance and range of frequencies than humans. Ratkin also have excellent noses, which can detect smells from a greater range then those of humans. Due to their subterranean lifestyle, a Ratkin has naturally poor eyesight during the day-time, but when in the darkness, Ratkin can see in almost complete darkness. Most have brown, often dirty or matted fur (often flea ridden carrying sewer shakes), with large fangs in the upper jaw structure, red blood-shot eyes, over-grown claws, and a naked tail growing to the size of its body length. The loss of its tail will not typically cause a Serious Wound, but will cause the Ratkin flee the area.
