Humans

Humans are outsiders in the galaxy. They did not originate there, although it is not known where they actually came from. They seemed to have appeared out of nowhere on the same planet that Dwarves, Elves, Gnomes, and Orcs originated on. None of the races have been able to find anything so far signifying where humans might have come from; it’s as if they appeared out of nowhere.
Humans, although starting small on one little planet, can now be found throughout the galaxy in large numbers. They breed quickly compared to certain other races, and they are very adaptive to their environments; allowing them to live in some places that confound other races at times. Humans tend to be short sighted in their view on life, although there are some that do break away from this. This affects their way of thinking to the point where they usually try to use force, either verbal or physical, in order to get what they want. Sometimes this has helped them, but other times it has not.
The other races of the galaxy are generally neutral in their relationship with humans. Most of the time how an individual is received is entirely dependent on their personal reputation or lack thereof. The only race that holds humans in a higher regard, until shown otherwise, are the Orcs. This is something that has confused the races because although the Orcs are generally courteous to others, they still usually hold some distrust of most other races.
