The folk of the plateau of Leng are distant relatives of humanity, being the same size and shape and possessing the same basic abilities, and indeed able to pass for human with proper costuming. There the resemblance ends, however, for the almost-humans of Leng are morally repulsive, with dark desires and dubious inclinations. They are individually no more formidable than a normal human, have their own culture and religions, and build villages in their homeland.
More than once, the denizens of Leng have fallen under the sway of moonbeasts in the Dreamlands, serving as slaves, food, and emissaries to other more natural humanoid races (who typically would balk at dealing with moonbeasts). They are known to have waged wars against the Leng spiders.
Despite their bestial features, denizens of Leng are human-like enough to disguise themselves as true humans. To pass for full human, they must wear a hat, wrapping, or turban to cover their horns, and long pants and foot-coverings to hide their hooves and tails.
