Quicklings are a rare breed of brownie that were once like any other brownies, but they sought out dark and powerful magic. It is unknown whether they sought the power for altruistic purposes or not, but it is known that the power corrupted them entirely. They became savage hunters who were particularly cruel in their methods of killing. They hate humanoids of all kinds and wish nothing more than to kill them all. They are exceptionally adept ventriloquists, used in fooling others into traps or other dangerous situations.
Quicklings seek out dark and evil places and live in a clan structure with their extended families. They favour poisoned or corrupted natural dwellings such as twisted groves of trees, poisoned, cursed or diseased springs or lands once ruled over by chaotic beings that have become overgrown. They avoid outside contact unless it helps them to promote their own evil desires such as contacting evil outsiders or wizards to offer their services as trackers and assassins.
