The Librarian

Deep in the jungles of the Mwangi Expanse live many creatures seldom observed by anyone not native to the area. In fact, the Mwangi Expanse is so big that many native creatures don’t even know about each other. Typically, in the jungles, most creatures only pay attention to the creatures they want to eat, or who want to eat them. Interspecies social interactions, thus, are largely based on hunger and typically begin in a mouth and end in a stomach. Some hours later they end again in an, arguably, even less pleasant manner but we won’t bother going any more in depth. Suffice it to say, yes, a bear does do it in the woods.

Our story follows an individual of the deep jungle. I would tell you his name but really it defies the constructs of any language which may be written on a piece of paper. If one wanted to write our protagonist’s name that one would likely need to write it with a squealing pig on parchment made of two parts angry bull, and one part twitterpated alligator. This is because the “man” in question is of a race known as the vanaras. The vanaras are mostly human in shape, though often a little shorter with longer arms and a slightly stooping posture. This is because the parts that aren’t mostly human are entirely ape. Their faces look very much like a monkey’s, their bodies are covered in fur, and they have long tails which make clothing a difficult proposition.

Yet despite their animalistic appearance they are every bit as intelligent as humans and live a druidic and communal existence within the Mwangi Expanse….
