Pygmy Kaava

An unusually large number of kaava living in the Kaava Lands are relatively small, standing about 3 feet tall and weighing about 30 pounds. Pygmy kaava openly show their disdain for larger kaava, and the two groups rarely get along. Pygmy kaava often hunt alongside trained bush vipers or black mamba snakes.

Kaava are stealthy, jungle-dwelling humanoids with short down feathers that can easily be mistaken for fur from a distance. Kaava have tough scales beneath these feathers. Both the scales and feathers have mutable pigmentation that allows a kaava to blend into surrounding foliage like a chameleon.

Sidebar - Additional Lore Kaava Diplomacy

The term kaava is both singular and plural, which reflects their community-driven nature; obligation and duty define kaava culture, principally their duty to each other. Due to unpleasant interactions with humanoids in the past, most kaava are insular and suspicious, and have a tendency to attack intruders with little provocation. A stranger can earn a kaava's grudging trust through numerous patient and peaceful interactions, but even then a kaava is unlikely to go out of their way to provide aid to anyone they deem an outsider.
