Deep Folk are variant humans who can trace their ancestry to subterranean dwellers that settled the inhospitable South West continent thousands of years ago. Modern day Deep Folk have pale gray skin, reddish eyes and ashen hair. They are on average shorter than their cousins with very few reaching close 6 feet in height. They also tend to be leaner with few individuals weighing over 200 pounds.
Most of Deep Folk live in the five great cities of the South Reach Emirates. Because of their sensitive skin and eyes they prefer subterranean dwellings, and usually wear protective clothing when venturing outside during the day.
