The murloc is a bipedal, amphibious, semi-intelligent, aggressive race residing along coastlines, lakeshores, and riverbeds. Murlocs possess bulbous bodies, large mouths lined with rows of sharp fangs, and slime-coated skin. Individuals range in coloration from turquoise to darkish grey, while their heights vary from 3-1/2 feet to 6 feet. Depending on the variety, murlocs may lean towards a closer resemblance to frogs or to fish; the iconic green murloc, for example, has coloration similar to the red-eyed tree frog. Yet some rise, sneaking around the forest and marshes as they steal books and scrolls from passing travelers, many of these murlocs slowly become attuned, slowly but surely to the arcane. Many of their tribe fear these individuals, some kneel to praise it. Travelers have seen rare occasions, but the nickname spread quickly.
