Dast


Description: A strange combination of near-human intellect and deep-rooted animalistic sensibility, dasts are rare wanderers, often hiding themselves far from where anyone would expect, across various types of land spaces.

Many strange historical events are linked with the wisdom of dasts. As such, certain mythological figures, such as Mobion (who has a constellation named after him), are claimed to have been dasts, although many historians speculate that these were just men -- likely druids -- wearing dast hides and horns on their helmets.

The most well-documented dast is a mischievous fiend, named Drallegos, currently imprisoned at the Lossan Center for Beast Containment. Most of what we know of dasts comes from interactions with this particular specimen. From it, we know dasts can speak, think critically, and have desires of other sentient beings.
