An Escarian looks like a snail with arms and legs. They stand from 5 to 7 feet tall, with men being a tad bigger than the women. They have giant shells on their backs and they may withdraw into those shell when they feel threatened. Their head is slightly humanoid, with eye stalks and a slow moving, slimy, raspy mouth. Their arms and legs are similar to humans, though they have no toes. Their torsos look like those of slugs. Their bodies are perpetually covered in a layer of slime.

They have giant shells on their backs and they may withdraw into those shell when they feel threatened. Their head is slightly humanoid, with eye stalks and a slow moving, slimy, raspy mouth. Their arms and legs are similar to humans, though they have no toes. Their torsos look like those of slugs. Their bodies are perpetually covered in a layer of slime.

RelationsEdit
