The Mazunti (singular: Mazunt) are aquatic people created by Harkon Armal in the early days of the warped world. They are sometimes called Sea Dwarves.
Mazunti are short, stalky creatures. There skin has a blue tinge to it and is very wrinkled and weathered, looking like a crumpled sack that has been loosely draped over their muscles and bones. They lack teeth but make up for it with a powerful beak. Their eyes are large and seem slightly sunk into their skulls, but are well adapted for seeing underwater. Strange, thick hair grows from their face, giving the appearance that they have beards of seaweed. Their torso is protected by a rough, horny, turtle-like shell. Despite this, they are still able to wear armor (though it must be custome made).
The Mazunti were created by Harkon Armal when the world had only recently been formed. They currently live in the waters surrounding the Hive, and on the seamats in those oceans.
Ker Aash - The first permanent Mazunti settlement, built on one of the larger and older coral reefs near the Hive. Currently only about 20 or 30 individuals live there.
The Mazunti live upon coral reefs, using the creatures to grow their buildings slowly, over many years (it is a fast growing variety of coral, so this process can be completed in less than a decade, for a small structure). Currently there communities are only about 3 or 4 families large; they do not herd animals or grow their food, so they must hunt in wide ranges, which often puts them in contact with others of their kind.
- Tro Shwa - An uncommon name. Tro Shwa was the name of the first Mazunti hero of legend, who gave his people a home when they had only been nomads before.
