But enough of gender and on to fauns as a race.
A peaceful and festive race, it could be said that the faun was the original 'party animal' in that their favourite activities number feasting, drinking, dancing and chasing dryads or for that matter any other attractive females.
Loving to dance by moonlight and play tricks on other races during the wee small hours, fauns do not make the ideal neighbour though they will welcome you with open arms if you happen to share their love of merriment.
Well known for their passion, fauns are incredibly impulsive beings who have little sense of right or wrong, their actions neither harmful nor helpful, they simply fulfil that impulse which is why humans and dwarfs tend to have the most trouble with them, elves and other halflings the least.
Socially and culturally very similar, fauns are Roman in origin whilst satyrs are Greek and, though later myths portrayed both as having horns and the lower body of an animal, the faun having goat-like hooves, the satyr human feet, originally the satyr was depicted as being a stocky, hairy and extremely ugly dwarf. Oh and though both are party loving and fond of the ladies the satyr is said to be (how to put this politely?) much more, err, promiscuous.
Belonging to a class of beings known as Satyrus/Saturos, the satyr, known as Satyriskoi as children and Seilenoi when they elderly, are connected with the worship of Dionysus, God of fertility and wine, and as such represent the vital power of nature.
