Lalafell - Races

A wee people sporting short, rotund bodies, the Lalafell appear as no more than children to the eyes of most. Many of these nimble little folk hail from the islands of the south seas, where they practise a simple agricultural lifestyle. It was not until the opening of maritime trade routes that the gradual migration of Lalafell to Eorzea began.

They are now one of the more populous races and are well established throughout the region, though they remain averse to cold climates. Though Lalafellin culture places great emphasis on blood relations, individuals are known for getting along amicably with members of all races.

The short, rotund builds of the Lalafell belie an incredible agility, and their seemingly feeble legs are capable of carrying them long distances over any terrain. Many among them are also known for possessing highly developed and cunning intellects.

Dunesfolk Clan

FFXIV Races - Lalafell - Dunesfolk Perhaps the most unique characteristic of the Dunesfolk is their native dwellings - structures affixed to the backs of large beasts of burden. It is in this way that they are able to traverse the vast desert expanses of the island which they call home. The luminous eyes of the Dunesfolk are a result of a glossy, protective layer which covers the pupil, an evolutionary response to the region's glaring sunlight.

Many individuals wear a small, traditional gemstone on their forehead, a symbol of their zodiacal sign. They are adamant about scholasticism, placing the advancement of knowledge before all else. Other races tend to perceive male Dunesfolk as introverts who care more for books than the goings-on of the realm, while other races perceive female Dunesfolk as gentle souls with a love for fortune-telling and divination.

Plainsfolk Clan

FFXIV Races - Lalafell - Plainsfolk The flat landscapes of the Plainsfolk's home islands are dotted with the clan's traditional thatched huts, beneath which lie intricate networks of underground passageways. Their distinct hair colouration - a myriad of earthy and grassy tones - helps them to blend in well with their environment, acting as an effective camouflage against world-be attackers. The long, pointy ears of the Plainsfolk are extremely sensitive, said to be able to detect the faintest scampering of the prairie's various fauna.

They are a clever and opportunistic people, and crafty with their words. These traits have helped the Plainsfolk excel in the arena of business. The generally accepted view of Plainsfolk males is that they are a cheerful lot, with a weakness for festivals and celebrations, while the generally accepted view of Plainsfolk females is that they are a vibrant lot, with a penchant for excessive conversation.
