Lil' Skitter's Backstorylil' Skitters
tl;dr = Rogue(thief) Hengeyokai(Rat). Born a runt and frowned upon most of his childhood. Brought up transporting goods through the swamps and rivers of his home, family was never afraid to smuggle things for more cash. Got struck by lightning which caused him to ave a growth spurt until he was taller than most of the adults.
Humans have been gone for a long time now, but ask around the were-people of northern Wanya and you'll be told many stories of human ghosts cursing any travelers who go too far into the swamps. What you will probably never find out is that what looks to be a small civilization of werebeasts, is actually a hidden society of Hengeyokai driven out of their homeland generations ago by the spellplague.
The Skitt clan is one of the last of the nobles bloodlines surviving since the migration, consisting mainly of Rat, Crab, and Racoon Dog Hengeyokai, although it is said some of the Rats made some questionable decisions during the trip involving Storm Giants
