Distinctions Adaptable and ambitious, among the most numerous and widespread of Arc's races

Humans in Arc are widespread, can be found in most regions and, in general, are fierce and disagreeable, which can sometimes lead certain other races to view them with contempt. They are renowned for their diversity and ambition, and although they lack specialization, they can excel in many areas.


The origin of humanity is something yet unknown and humans have no unifying creation myth. However, they are certainly an ancient race, having originated since before written records exist and they are frequently considered one of the creator races.

Regardless of their precise origins, humans have been undeniably successful. While hardly the only dominant race of Arc, humans are one of them and the most recent to obtain dominance. In spite of this strength, or perhaps because of it, humanity is an eternally fractured and divided race, broken up into over a dozen ethnic offshoots. It is believed that this is in part because humanity, unlike most other races, did not emerge as a whole but rather in several places at once, thereby resulting in its diversity.

Human ethnic groupsEdit

While there are no natural human subraces, there is great ethnic diversity between humans in different regions.

Related races Edit

Humans are kin to many races, such asgithyanki, githzerai and Imaskari. Additionally, humans have bred outside their race many times, resulting in the various half-human races like half-elves and half-orcs as well as meta-human races  such as aasimars, genasi, tieflings, and dragonborn.
