The Kypiq tribe are unquestionably the most diminutive of the tribes, but their small size and adorable demeanor belies the true value their form affords them. With an average height of about 4' (122 cm) tall, and an average weight of about 60 lbs (27 kg), the Kypiq are significantly lighter on their feet than the other tribes, enabling them to make their homes in the treetops of the forests scattered throughout Elyria's temperate regions. With their medium to olive-tone skin, and their light brown, chestnut, or auburn hair, they blend in easily among the various broad-leaf and coniferous trees of the forest. Their most striking feature, however, are their large, brown eyes which have evolved to provide improved vision - particularly in the thick, forest canopy - but is also frequently mistaken for child-like proportions found in other tribes. As such, the Kypiq are often referred to by any number of diminutive nicknames which exacerbate their squirrel-like stereotype.
