Hatred of Ferrets
Humans were created by the illithids late in the life of their empire, based on various characteristics from their other creations. Humans are natural pattern-making and intellectual creatures, and most mages and scholars are human. Humans are also the great city-builders, and were the first to do so. Humans worship an untold number of minor and major Ascended as local deities, or the Pentad in more philosophical circles. Humans value writing very strongly and their bards are often great poets or even novelists.
