Bokbok


Summary:

Bokbok are a centaur subspecies that stand slightly shorter than a human. They consist of a small humanoid torso situated atop an equally small springbok body. They are a lively race that seek out community and cooperation above all else.


Physical:

Bokbok are on the short end of medium sized creatures. Male Bokbok stand between male and female humans in height, but female Bokbok average less than either. They are a short lived race that mature quickly and don’t suffer the effects of old age. They look and feel as young on their last day as they did on their first. The eldest Bokbok have not lived past 40 years of age.

Each tribe of Bokbok has a fur pattern somewhat unique to their location, but all Bokbok share clean white underbellies and inner legs. Bokbok spanning across plains tend to have lighter browns on their backs as compared to those in tall grass or wooded environments who have darker browns. Likewise, Bokbok in plains have a long dark brown or black stripe that spans across either of their sides while Bokbok in tall grass or wooded areas have light speckles over their backs.


Culture:

Bokbok are a highly curious, cooperative, and energetic race. While generally nomadic, they always stick together. Bokbok not among their own race will stick just as tightly to those they have no reason to distrust.

Due to Bokbok love for travel, migration, and roaming, they tend to be large nomadic tribes of talented professionals. As such, they travel, care for, and explore together in large bustling communities. Bouncing from city to city as an entourage of travelling artisans, merchants, mercenaries, and scouts.


Ecology:

Bokbok naturally inhabit that which is wide, open, and generally grassy. Plains, savannah, and environments with lots of space to roam are among their favored places, but it’s not uncommon to see Bokbok living in wooded or covered areas. Very rarely are Bokbok found in marshes, wetlands, or environments without grass.


Alignment and Religion:

Bokbok tend to be chaotic good, not often raised under rule or law, but highly cooperative by nature. While unbound from law, they have no trouble following them, and though cooperative, their tendency to be evil is no more than their tendency to be good. Very “I’ll scratch your back if you promise to scratch mine.” On the other hand, Bokbok tricksters and pranksters are common, but rarely cruel.


Adventuring:

Bokbok are quick to take up adventuring as long as with it comes company, because travel is usually a given. It is strongly accepted within their culture, and knowing how short lived the Bokbok are in comparison to many other races drives them to maximize their life experiences in a shorter time than most.
