Races of Cambria

First off, Cambria is home to many different races in varying degrees. Some are more numerous than others, and can bee seen with nothing thought odd. Others are a bit more exotic, and though folk might have heard of these races, not everyone will have seen a member of said races. The third category is the rare types of people that one might encounter, people that will be remembered for their odd appearance and mannerisms as much as their deeds.
