Seeq

The Seeq are a pig-like race that comes in a variety of colors and sizes. They make a living in Hume societies and make decent go-betweens and peddlers. Many are mistrusted on account of their appearance, mannerisms, and size. But if they are treated correctly, they make loyal friends. They have large, tan bellies, with the rest of their bodies colored in various shades, commonly blue, but some are red, green, yellow, or brown. They have squat faces and snouts with large nostrils, large, pupil-less eyes of varying colors, and large tusks. One of their distinguishing features is their large single horn that protrudes from the top of their heads, sometimes it is a spire, and other times it resembles a knob. They stand on short, thin, but strong legs featuring three cloven toes. Their powerful arms feature two long-talon fingers and a thumb. Physically, it is impossible to distinguish between males and females. But females tend to wear tops, while most males usually only cover their bottoms with ragged skirts or shorts in day to day life, only donning armor for adventuring. Seeq are natural gossipmongers and peddlers. Most living among Hume societies operating bazaar stalls, shops, and taverns. They are treated as lower-class citizens, on the account that most are not very bright and speak crudely and have no table manners and spread rumors and are greedy and etc.
