Ages ago, when most other fey who left the Wild to become mortal adopted and practiced the cultural norms of other humanoids, the maskani retained a tenuous connection to their fey home. These mischievous and playful racoon-like humanoids enjoy playing pranks, telling jokes and hearing good stories. Maskani are fierce defenders of their home, however, and can be a surprisingly dangerous foe, especially if in great numbers.

If  you want to play an animal-like character who is both playful and ferocious, you should play a maskani.

You Might…

  • Be playful and gregarious, and enjoying playing harmless pranks
  • Always appear to be in good spirits, laughing and joking, despite your actual mood

Others Probably…

  • Think you are a scavenger or thief
  • Mistake your playful disposition as weakness

Physical Description

Maskani range in height from roughly three to almost four feet. They are covered head to toe in soft, thick black, brown or gray fur, with white markings on their head, chest and paws. Their large round eyes come in a variety of colors – black, brown, hazel or, rarely, green. Their short snout, similar to a racoon’s, has sensitive whiskers below a pattern of dark fur around their eyes and nose. Not all maskani have tails, but for those that do, they are long and bushy, with distinctive black and white rings.


Maskani live in interconnected treehouses, crafted from sturdy branches and platforms woven with leaves and vines. These villages blend seamlessly with the canopy, offering excellent camouflage. Skilled at carpentry and weaving, maskani communities work together to build and maintain their treetop dwellings. While following a general design, each maskani family personalizes their treehouse with scavenged trinkets, trophies, and colorful fabrics.

Maskani society revolves around close-knit family units that work together to gather resources and raise young. Elders, repositories of wisdom and storytelling, are highly respected and hold leadership positions within the community. Cooperation and mutual aid are crucial for survival in the trees. Maskani society emphasizes working together and resolving conflicts peacefully. Oral traditions are strong among the maskani. They use stories, songs, and dances passed down through generations to teach history, survival skills, and their connection to the forest.


Maskani rarely pay heed to any so-called divine beings, preferring the lessons and guidance of powerful fey, or the tangible security of a devoted Enosi.
