"They are sometimes welcomed for a potentially immoral reason: they often sell at a loss since they are prone to flattery and quite bad with numbers."
Otters are a race of intelligent otter-like creatures. They are able to talk normally and walk on land, although they often have a great desire to fish. This usually makes them excellent swimmers and divers, and great at catching fish. This is why there are Otter-run fishing businesses in almost every town. They are quite bad at numbers and susceptible to flattery. By nature, they always believe everything will turn out just fine.
Female Otters are rarely seen, compared to their male counterparts. Gifting fish to each other is a manner of courtship between Otters.
Crioville, Southwestern Calpheon
Crioville is a town of hostile and unsociable Otters who have isolated themselves from the rest of the world. The village was originally built along the shores of Lake Crio, but as the lake diminishes in size, so too does the numbers of Otters living here. Some of the Otters have learned how to be sociable with Humans and have ventured out into the world, but the more conservative Otters still prefer to stay here within their own social structure.
Not too far from Crioville is the Longleaf Tree Sentry Post where Elves from the Kamasilve Temple built the outpost in a tall tree to protect the Otters from outside threats.
