The Humans, being the most common and abundant of the races, have settled in many places, particularly favoring the plains of the realm. They built large cities and many farming villages, where they would work the land raising cattle and crops. While the Elves took the forests and the dwarves took to the mountains, the humans spread themselves across the lands, inhabiting almost all environments. Being the closest to the eastern and northern mountains, they were the first to cross blades with the pact.
The humans have built many cities over the centuries, but the most prominent one to this era is the capital city of Falkvard. Sadly, this city was largely destroyed in the Pact war, and what is left of it is now a mere shadow of what was once a mighty bustling city. It was in fact a human, a nobleman named Barkam, who fled the capital in the beginnings of the war who founded the town of Barkamsted. Thankfully, in recent years the city of Falkvard has undergone repairs and is inhabited once more thanks to the descendant of Lord Barkam, as well as the great efforts and help of the people of Barkamsted. Today, Falkvard is nowhere near the size or splendor it once held, but perhaps someday, when enough people return, the city will once again be a great place of commerce and trade.
Humans stand reasonably tall, commonly around six feet for males and five feet seven inches for women; both reach adulthood around twenty-three years. It should be noted that, rarely, outliers emerge who stand much taller than this. Both genders reach sexual maturity around 14 years, although most activity at this age is highly frowned upon. Both men and women tend to expire around 85 years old. Humanity is among the most varied in the world, with hair colors that range from bright blondes to dark blacks with eyes of ranges one might expect up to and including malady indicating white. As for traits, humanity boasts unmatched tenacity and smarts, designing many great inventions during times of peril. Physical strength and magical abilities are somewhat limited however, with most humans lacking any real, if not all potential for magic. Today, roughly 15% of humanity has any magical potential.

The Humans worship a wide variety of gods based on their locations and heritage. The most common however are both Aderoth, the god of purity, healing, and heaven, and Udero, the god of balance and order. It is quite common for humans to build churches in dedication to Aderoth, and rarely altars to Udero will be constructed, one of the largest being a massive altar that was built thousands of years ago just outside of what is now Falkvard. While Aderoth and Udero are the most commonly worshiped of the gods, this does not mean certain factions or outlying villages do not worship other gods.
