Rise of the Fallen
Tarans are hulking humanoids who stand between 7 to 9 feet (2 to 3 m) tall on average. In addition to their size, tarans are distinguishable from humans by their lack of eyes; tarans sense by vibration, scent, and smell. Most are warriors or hunters, as sturdy and hard as the Cerulean Peaks where most of their kind still lives. They’re also as intractable as those same peaks, fiercely proud, and certain that they are descended from gods even older than those who fell with Elanehtar. Tarans who come to the lands where humans dwell do so as mercenaries, criminals, or slaves destined for a short life of brute labor. Humans often denigrate taran intelligence, but as tarans tell it, that’s only because humans are intimidated by taran stature.
