Humans are by far the most common race amongst those living in Arkelon. Their adaptation to different climates is well-known and even renowned amidst the other races of the world. This ability granted them an enormous diversity in their ranks.
From the nomadic tribes of the South, to the more sedentary ones in the North, Humans are widely scattered around Arkelon. They are usually seen as the most dominant race, due to their sheer numbers and adaptability traits, but are faced with drawbacks from their tendency to conquer and divide the other races’ territories.
Humans of all kind are a mixed bag – while some can be empathic and kind, their neighbors can be just as cold and unforgiving as the North. Nevertheless, most of them share a common characteristic of collecting and keeping relics from the past, while thirsting for new knowledge and new technologies. This last peculiarity can cause a lot of Humans to suffer from nostalgia towards their past.
The Hatkans are made up of all Humans living in the desert, far in the South of the two continents. They chose to establish themselves in
arid and dangerous lands, where food, water and other resources
are sparse, and therefore, prized amongst the communities. Most
of the Hatkans live on the Western Continent,
in the Ank’Natel Desert. They share their near
environment with numerous threatening insects
and ferocious predators.
The vast majority of the Hatkans, or desert
people, are from nomadic tribes, rarely spending
more than a few days in the same place. One
traveling around can seldom find a city in the desert.
The houses are typically made from cement, granite,
marble, plaster or rocks; the nomadic majority,
however, carry large tents that are quick to deploy
and put away when in need of leaving.
