A Light in Darkness
Caliban are poor twisted souls broken by evil magic while still in the womb. They are seen as an ill omen from birth and are often cast out of their communities. Every caliban is physically different but nearly all are deformed and ugly, or at least different. Common features include over sized arms, unusual patches of hair or even small tusks. Often due to their upbringing they stick to the shadows and are fearful or even violent recluses.
