Pech are omnivores, sustaining themselves with food gathered from both the underground and the surface. They often trade their stonecrafted items for food or services with other creatures. Pech are not known for accumulating large amounts of treasure; instead, they value simple, practical items made from stone and metal. Their lairs can be filled with trade gems, stone dishes, and utensils, which are often exchanged with outsiders.

They can shape and manipulate stone with ease, using their powers to create objects and structures for practical purposes.

Pech live in close-knit clans within their subterranean homes. They have a strong bond with their fellow pech and are protective of their communities.
