Frog-kin, Bully

On average a Bully is a few inches shorter than a human, but his muscular stature, large lower body, and thick skeleton make a weight nearing 300lbs very common. Most Bullies are a shade of green, with moist, slick skin.

Frog-kin are unique in their physical development, as they’re born as purely aquatic creatures, known as tadpoles. At this stage they have no legs or arms, and weigh only a few pounds. It takes approxamatly a year for a Frog-kin’s lungs and appendages to develop enough for them to walk on land. Caretakers hypothesized that it was their development away from adults of their species that led to their stunted intellectual abilities.

Bullies speak Croak, a deep, throaty language more often sung than spoken. When on a plague, Bullies will go for days only speaking in Croak as a sign of respect to their own culture.

Bullies are carnivores and live primarily on the monstrously large insects and rodents that live in the swamps of the Hegemony. While they can digest and survive on other meats, they prefer the crunch of living bugs heading down their throat as they swallow them whole. The fact that the insects occur naturally and in abundance means that the Frog-kin have never had to develop a system for producing food.
