The faunus species was bred by the Sh'thani on Xan'rius during the height of the Age of Spires. At the time, the Sh'thani, who exercised total control over the world, found the native species of humans and wyldfolk, along with their fae servants, to be lacking in certain tasks. To this end, they experimented on the vast array of native animal-life (far different from the creatures of their world), ultimately creating five successful species. Since the fall of the spires, the faunus have had to find their own voice and culture in the world. There are five subspecies of faunus: Fela, Froggling, Muris, Ratta, and Sciura.
