The Moles are a species of highly intelligent beastfolk, ranging from medium to man-size, and possessing poor base eyesight and an outstanding sense of smell. The Moles typically live underground, in Velous as well as Terra.
Moles are, as a species, hard working, productive members of society. Almost all Moles on Earth enter subterranean occupations, such as mining or tunnel-building. Most Moles in particular chose to work for the powerful Mining Union, due to their mastery of digging. Moles are naturally disposed to working, and so it is very rare to see an unemployed or idle Mole - they are almost always working and, in their spare time, tinkering with or building unique machines. Moles are rarely seen outside their tunnels, and they are the world's main suppliers of raw minerals and other underground goods.
The chairman of the Mining Union, a powerful Mole known as Leonard von Digg, was responsible for the events of the Mining Union War.
Physiology and Culture
Moles are on average, short, burly, intelligent, and tough. Moles have rather large, pointy noses with which they smell out points of interest in their subterranean tunnels. Moles have thick shovel claws to assist in digging, and moles are also very adept in mechanics.
Moles, apart from being diggers, are inventors by trade. Evidence of that can be found in their incredible genetic engineering projects, and the impressive technologies that they develop to assist in their mining and demolition endeavors. Moles speak with unique accents that vaguely resemble an eastern european vernacular. Though individually smaller on average than a man, a Mole is hardened by life underground in the tunnels. Moles can tolerate a wide range of temperatures, pressures, and air qualities. Constant digging has grown their muscle mass and density, and their natural hardiness allows them to take a lot of punishment.
Their natural intelligence gives them the tactics and know-how that they need to survive underground, and on the battlefield.
