A race of bipedal rat humanoids, the Nezumi are covered in fur from head to toe except for their ears, muzzles, hands and worm-like tails. Their eyes gleam red in the light and their mouths are lined with razor-sharp teeth designed for ripping and tearing, particularly their dagger-like incisors. In terms of size, the average Nezumi is slight of build and can stand up to between four and six feet in height when not in their usual hunched-over posture.

Fur colour can be used to identify a Nezumi’s rank. While most Nezumi are brown or piebald, larger or more deadly specimens have visibly darker fur than their kin. White or grey fur on the other hand denotes leadership, intelligence and possibly tinkerer abilities. It is speculated among surface dwellers that this is to help distinguish leaders in the dark of the ruins of old.

The Nezumi are a twitchy and constantly agitated species, owing to a metabolism that burns energy at a tremendous rate, which also gives them unnatural agility and speed. Another side-effect of this is their equally unnatural hunger, driving them to gorge themselves on the corpses of the fallen. A Nezumi unable to replenish itself will visibly weaken and die.

Female Nezumi are rare and lethargic in nature, seemingly existing only to give birth to huge litters of Nezumi at alarming rates, arguably making the Nezumi the most numerous of all the races in the old ruins.
