While there is a wide range of different beasts and monsters scattered throughout Erridose, one of the most common of them would be the Pikins. Coming in many varieties that have adapted themselves to live in almost any natural environment, Pikins have some uniform physical features.
Almost always these monsters are short in stature (though some breeds have evolved into “super” Pikins which are much larger in size) but what they lack in size they make up for with ruthless viciousness. Armed with sharp teeth and claws, Pikins travel and hunt in packs which means that if you’ve seen one, you can be certain that there are more lurking nearby.
Loyal only to their pack leader, Pikins are driven only by their hunger and desire for violence. Every Pikin that you come across will be adorned with a skull helmet, where’s each skull helmet is unique to that specific Pikin species, as the skull helmet acts as a banner of sorts, and represents the tribe that Pikin belongs to.
Every breed of Pikin has adapted themselves to live in a different natural environment which makes their physical features as unique as snowflakes. Some breeds are natural born swimmers, some can scale mountains without a moment of hesitation, and some even practice dark, mystical arts. In addition to this, every breed of Pikin adorns themselves in different styles of clothing and armor that is perfectly suited for the environment in which they dwell.
