According to ancient records, the m'teoulin were not human. Tales and artistic depictions portray them as similar to humans, but thinner, possessing an unearthly beauty and grace, the men rangy and surprisingly strong.
The m'teoulin today are twisted parodies of what they once were. Still human-seeming at a distance, in the light they are startlingly pale, bestial and coarse featured. The daggers, short swords, and axes they carry are forged of bronze and imbued with a foul taint. They have excellent night-vision, but have difficulty seeing in sunlight. They are masters of stealth.
