Physical Qualities

Goyles have a wirey build on a small frame. There faces look like a human's with bat like ears and a snub nose. Their eyes give off a faint glow. Their eye color ranges the entire spectrum. Their skin is heavy and folds like an elephants. Skin color is usually dark, cool earthy and stone like colors: green, dark grey, brown, black, and others. The only hair they have is sparce and patchy. Even with the hair, it is nearly impossible to tell the genders apart.

A Goyles most outstanding feature is, of course, their wings. They are bat-like, but without claws. They make a disctinct heavy flap on the air while flying. Their wingspan is usally about twice their height and fold loosley when landed.

Playing a Goyle

Goyles are usually quiet and reserved, only speaking when nessesary. They are usually pretty harsh on the exterior, but in truth are just looking for the other races to trust them. This is due to the animosity brought on by their heritage. They do not hold hatred to other races because their ancestors served mankind and the other races in the past.
