4.14.15 THE TAE'DAE RACE

Descended from the Elder God Tae, the tae'dae are bear-like humanoids. 
They are an extremely large people, though their size is more in their 
breadth rather than their height, which likewise makes them as slow as 
they are powerful. Indeed, they are the innately strongest of all the 
mortal races. They seem to have no natural affinity to any specific 
environment, being found in arctic regions (the white furred tae'dae, 
often with blue tongues) to more temperate zones (brown or black fur) to 
some jungle regions (where their fur is curiously patterned in black and 
white). They are extremely affable, proud and charismatic, and most have 
an inborn desire to protect the furrikin, who are often inexplicably 
referred to as their "little brothers and little sisters" (and it is true 
some furrikin look like miniature tae'dae). Though notoriously known for 
being of small intellect, the typical tae'dae believes just the opposite, 
considering him or herself to be uncommonly wise.
