Otter-kin are short and slender, with thick, slick brown fur and a long, angular muzzle. They have sharp teeth, pointed ears and a thick, powerful tail.

Carnivorous by nature, Otter-kin eat a varied diet of creatures from fish to frogs, and sometimes even birds that venture too close to the water’s edge.

All Otter-kin speak a derivative of Aquan, though no one is exactly sure where the language first originated, as they have few written records.
