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 day is the capital city of Falkvard, seat of the Falkvard line of human kings. Sadly, this city was largely destroyed in the Pact War; what remains, even after efforts to rebuild, is a mere shadow of what was once a mighty, bustling city. Their second major city, Barkamsted, was founded by Lord Barkam, who fled the capital in the beginnings of the war, with his city gradually growing as refugees of war fled to it. Thankfully, in recent years the city of Falkvard has undergone repairs and is inhabited once more thanks to the descendants of Lord Barkam, as well as the great efforts of Barkamsted's people. 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 taller than this. Both genders reach sexual maturity around 14 years, although 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 race in the world, with hair colors that range from bright blondes to dark blacks and 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. This is not to say that humans are inherently more intelligent than other races, though they are known for their ability to adapt to virtually anywhere they can settle, provided its living conditions are habitable. Their physical strength and magical abilities are somewhat limited, however, with most humans lacking the 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 commonly-worshipped are Aderoth, God of purity, healing, and Heaven, and Udero, God of balance and order. It is common for humans to build churches in dedication to Aderoth, and rarely altars to Udero will be constructed, one of the most significant being a one of pristine white, built thousands of years ago just outside of Falkvard. While Aderoth and Udero are the most commonly-worshiped of the Gods, humans will often worship whichever Gods suit their lives and needs; Behmos, of course, is an exception, for worship of the God of darkness and sin is illegal.
