They are bone skinny, with stringy hair, small sharp teeth, and blotchy skin. They stand between 4 and 6 feet tall, with leathery skin, and beady black eyes. They wear raggedy clothing stolen from others.

They tend to settle on the outskirts of settlements, or on their own in the rust wastes.[/pms-restrict]

“Trust not the Vaesil, for they will betray you.”


The Vaesil are quite intelligent, tending to bend their wills towards sinister plots and and devious intentions.


The Vaesil are not known to manufacture much of worth, besides thistlegrog, though some are known to carve their own dice from bone.

Male and female Vaesil are similar at first glance, though they of course are different to the discerning eye. They are identical in build and size.

Younglings grow and mature quickly, most leaving the nest by age 3, striking out on their own.

It is widely known that Vaesil love knives of any sort, and most seem to be in the middle of some deal to get a “better shiv” from some old uncle or chum. They are constantly sharpening the blades until they are thin and quite sharp.[/pms-restrict]

Derogatory term: “the ‘Sil”.

Vaeday is the only known holiday of the Vaesil people, where twigs and sticks are gathered for immense bonfire parties. Hundreds of the creatures will venture from all over the countryside to gather together with their thistlegrog, gristle-jerky, and bundles of twigs to contribute to the mating-pyre.

These fires can be seen for miles around, and should be avoided due to the aggressive and drunken nature of the Vaesil. After a few days, the festival ends, usually leaving behind a pile of charred corpses. (The Vaeday mating disputes are legendary.)

This ritual is repeated 2-3 times per year, and seems to be their usual mating times.
