In Krynn's Fifth Age following the Summer of Choas, when the Gods dissapeared
from Krynn. Dragons became the new ruling force of Ansalon. The greatest
dragon of all, Malystryx, a huge female red dragon, claimed the Goodlund
peninsula as her home. She completely destroyed Kendermore creating Afflicted
Kender in the process.
An odd mixture, the half-kender is one of the most misunderstood of all
half-breeds. This race of mixed blood between a human and a kender is
often the product of a romance between a human male and female kender.
Although on rare occasions the reverse has been known to happen. Of all
the mixed races the half-kender looks the most human, and is often believed
to be human, albeit a human small of stature.
Living in isolated Marak valleys of the Steamwall, well down on
the lower slopes, are a cluster of small kender communities. These
kender (a race that is somewhat rare in Taladas) are unique in Taladas
and perhaps throughout all of Krynn. They, perhaps more than any
others throughout Taladas, have undergone a distinct change in their
way of life.
No one knows how the Kendar got to Chorane, or even how long they
have been there; not even the Kendar themselves know. ''We've always
been here," a Kendar will say if asked about the race's origins.
''I mean, I think so...wait a minute. Hmmm...well, I've always been
here, except for that time I went exploring down that steam vent...so
I guess we've always been here. Yes, definitely. We've always been
here. I think."
About The Coomshee
There has long been a kender tale of a place where kender are not so civilized,
but have fallen and remained in a state of barbarianism. Until recently
the race was unheard of, but with the arrival of the Brutes at the end
of the 4th Age some of these kender have been encountered. They are known
to the Brutes as the Comshee, a troublesome little race that they equate
to fleas on a dog.

All About Kender
From the dark land of Sithicus comes word of a breed of vampire
only recently released on the demiplane of Ravenloft: the kender
vampire. While not truly the equal of the other species of vampire,
these monsters are no less evil.
Sea kender (Kendesti) hail from the waters surrounding Hylo. During the
Kender Flight, when kendermore kender fled their home, many went to Hylo,
seeking refuge in their cousins' land. But many didn't make it. Some boated
to Northern Ergoth, some even tried swimming. But all in all, only half
of the kender who intended on going to Hylo actually made it.
