Short and thin, gnomes are often mistaken for children. They can be identified by their odd hair colors, highpitched voices, and curious nature. Gnomes have a knack for machinery and putting things together, and have delicate fingers with an extra joint from the normal human bone structure. Combine this with a near-photographic memory for details and formulae, and you’ve got the makings of a master craftsman.
Gnomes must have hair of a color not normally found (or uncommon) in the human species, such as Green, Blue, Bright Red, or pure White. Gnomes must also speak in a high voice when possible.
