You’ve always felt at home both in civilization and in the natural world, elated and refreshed to be out in the field while appreciative of and comfortable with your amenities at home. Being in tune with nature and civilization has unlocked to you a healthy life style keeping you fit, but not agile. Used to patiently observing your environment from afar, you often grow stiff and are less nimble than your companions as a consequence. You might take to wearing colors that help you blend with your environment and feel uneasy when tusked like a grorthas, or otherwise standing out. Regardless, the fringes of your clothes are typically frayed and worn, or you might even carry a handy tool set on you at all times for fixing or “dissection” purposes.
