Mice are the smallest members of Rodentia, often reaching only about three and a half feet tall, and barely breaking forty pounds.

They have long, hairless tails that help with balance and movement, large floppy ears that increase hearing, and though they can be a variety of fur colors, white and grey are by far the most common.

Mouse-kin do not have a specific language to call their own. Instead they pride themselves on learning the languages of other races.

Mouse-kin will eat anything they can afford, and are not picky at all. Due to their lack of disposable income, and the fact that Cavy-kin are Herbivores and refuse to use the land for meat production, Mouse-kin children are known for being scrawny and sickly due to a lack of protein in their diet.
