Some have described Phanatons' appearance as that of a lemur with skin-flaps between wrist and ankle that are used for gliding. Others have described them as "a cross of raccoon, flying squirrel, and monkey."[1].

Phanaton Psychology[edit]

Phanatons are generally friendly and happy. They typically live in small arboreal communities. Being omnivores, they both hunt game and garden. In general they are shy and very curious; and will seek to explore and understand everything in their territory.

Curious and Affable

Fey, Elves: Phanatons like fey and elves, and are generally liked in return.

The phanaton's curiosity can wear on less light-hearted races.


Phanatons prefer an arboreal setting, making their homes in structures they build on platforms in the trees. "They have a simple culture in which the most capable members rule, and they are excellent woodcarvers."[1]

Phanaton Adventurers[edit]

Phanatons may become adventurers due to their curiosity getting the better of them, seeking to experience the wider world. They may have left a community because they could not get along with the rest of phanaton society. Or they may have been exiled, as too disruptive or dangerous to the community, or a crime against it.
