Hisk

Hisk are a type of Ratkin native to Harrow. Although they are most often found in Carabundi, where their people began the first sheltering monastery, Hisk can be found among the people of all Four Nations. Before the Kitarya’s exodus, the Hisk were a constant thorn in their side, attacking their laboratories and living on the run as guerilla warriors and freedom fighters. After the cataclysm, the remaining Hisk believed that with the dawn of their new world, they too must begin anew. They vowed to live in peace, providing the steady homeland and structure that they had denied themselves before and laid the foundations of serenity and balance that Carabundi stands on today.
