Not native to Atala, humans were instead created by the living god the Grand Ogrun 1,000 years ago, to the shock of the other gods. Their arrival had been a surprise, but their predilection for dominance combined with an alarming rate of growth has sent tremors of terror and dismay throughout the world, thrusting humanity into hostilities with most other species.
That said, they aren't wholly disliked, with some ambassadors building strong ties with other likeminded individuals in far-flung lands.
They maintain their dominance of the world's waterways through an impressive fleet of battleships, much to the distress of the acquatic teleost, and have an innate ambition to uncover all of Atala's secrets, given large swathes of the world have yet to be touched by human hands.
Each kingdom has a large military, complemented by sophisticated weapons, such as guns, and brutish ogres. They are the most balanaced species in terms of their martial abilities.
