A race of simian-like humanoids, hadozee are often referred to as "winged deck apes." It's easy to see where they would come by such a moniker: They are covered in light brown fur, with a slightly stooped posture, a shaggy mane, and a fanged muzzle. And they have flaps of skin that hang beneath their arms that enable gliding, if not true flight. Because they're also good climbers and balancers, hadozee are particularly suited for life aboard a ship sailing the seas of adventure. Hadozee stand at about 5-1/2 to 6 feet tall, though they always seem slightly shorter due to their natural stooped posture. They tend to weigh between 200 and 150 pounds, most of that weight being solid muscle. Their eyes are black and glitter brightly, and their fur can range in color from a light tawny golden brown to a deep chocolate. Hadozee do not really need clothing due to their fur covering, though many who work aboard ships wear harnesses and belts for their tools and weapons. Hadozee generally have about the same lifespan as humans, though they are considered adults a little earlier.

Most fascinating of all however is a hadozee's patagial flaps--flaps of skin between legs and arms, similar to those of a flying squirrel. With these patagia, the hadozee can launch herself into the air and glide for significant distances. It is not uncommon for Hadozee in the rigging of ships not to bother climbing down, but simply throw themselves into the air and glide to another part of the ship.

Hadozee adventurers are hardly out of the ordinary among their people; after all, most hadozee feel the call to the high seas at some point in their lives. Certainly, those hadozee who choose to go adventuring away from the ocean are looked upon oddly by their fellows, but "to each their own," the hadozee say.

===Character Names===
Hadozee take great pride in ships that they serve aboard, and will often incorporate part of that ship's name into their own. Thus Garsh, who has served aboard the Dream of the Night, might call himself Garsh Nightdream. This "ship-name" often binds hadozee together in ways that family or clan names do for other races--a hadozee who meets another hadozee who has served aboard the same ship feels more of a bond with that hadozee than with her own blood kin.

Hadosee are known as very intense, prone to expressing themselves exuberantly--when a hadozee is enjoying herself, she is likely to chuckle or even whoop aloud; when angry, she bares her fangs and snarls. In general, though, they are a very peaceable folk who fight only when they must. Hadozee enjoy working aboard ships and do not consider their shipboard chores as inconveniences, often actually looking forward to them. Some unscrupulous captains take undue advantage of this trait, but for the most part, hadozee are well thought of  and highly sought after as crew by the majority of the captains.

The Hadozee tongue is composed primarily of hoots, barks, and low vocalizations, with minimal and easily learned body language. Hadozee are capable linguists, however and delight in learning new languages, though they react positively when they meet non-Hadozee who have learned their tongue.

Hadozee have little room in their lives for higher philosophies of morality and ethics. They simply wish to be left alone to do their work and enjoy their lives, and prefer to leave others alone to do the same. Hadozee tend toward neutrality as a result.

Although the Hadozee do have a home land, they no longer know (or care) where it is. As far as any of them can remember, they have simply always traveled among other races, working aboard their beloved ships and seeing what the horizon held. Accordingly, they're almost always found near the coasts and the sea.
