Corgis are energetic, fun loving free spirits, found almost anywhere there are people and settlements. Wandering Corgi are friendly and helpful, and fellow travelers take them as a sign of good luck. Depending on the individual, Corgis can be extremely hard-working or lackadaisical vagabonds who wish nothing more than to sleep under a shady tree. Above all Corgis are caring, loyal, and curious to a fault.

Associated Languages: Giant, Goblin
You raised yourself on the streets of a bustling city. Did you have to steal food to survive? Are you naturally good at slipping through packed crowds? Did you make enemies during your time as a stray? Did your life on the streets give you the skills you needed to become who you are?
