Description: The Shay peoples are a stocky and hardy human race. They usually have brown hair and fair skin, with eyes blue, hazel or brown. Shay men are more hirsute than males of most other races, and are likely to let their dense facial hair grow. As most humans they are highly adaptive. Driven from their homeland in recent times, they live as nomades or solitary wanderers in search of new places to settle or bargain. Some have taken up adventuring. Some are driven by a relentless desire for vengeance, and are constantly seeking new opportunities to fight against the Vulth Horde, often with little to no regard for personal safety.
