AppearanceA typical Norbril halfling stands around three and a half to four feet tall and weighs around 80 pounds. Their skin colors range from light pink to slightly tanned, and their hair color is typically auburn, brown or blonde. Males usually wear their hair short on the sides and back, keeping it neatly trimmed.
Nearly all male halflings are incapable of growing true beards, though many have long sideburns. Female Norbril hairstyles are often complex, with strands woven together or braided.
Halflings have lifespans comparable with, but slightly longer, than humans. A halfling is typically considered an adult in their early twenties and some live into their 150s
The Norbril were originally found in the north and south marches near the Sentinel Sea prior to when the humans arrived. They lived with and learned from the humans for many years - their two socieies becoming quite symbiotic. It was not until the Great Silence when the humans of the Kels drove the Norbril away - claiming that their involvement with other races is what cut them off from the gods.
The North Marches side became what are traditionally known as the Norbril and the Svalir or the "Lost Folk" who live in the Northlands.
Norbril gather together in clans just like their more wild Hanabril cousins. Though they are less political and staunch than their darker, Tenebril cousins, the Norbril consider themselves to be a 'happy middle' between the two extremes.
Because of their involvement with humans, the Norbril have adapted to their level of technology in many ways. Rather than relying upon leather, wood and bone for a majority of their materials, the Norbril have learned to weave cloth, work metal and have become some of the finest weavers in the northlands.
