Hearth orlans are a sub-race of orlans in Pillars of Eternity. Orlans prefer the term meadow orlan or meadow kin.[1]

Origin and prevalence[edit | edit source]

“Hearth” orlans originated from the same place as their “wild” kin: the forested parts of the continent to the north of Readceras. While the wild orlans have stayed deep in the forests and jungles of the continent, hearth orlans progressively moved closer to lands settled by other races and established semi-permanent communities.

In Readceras and the Vailian Republics, hearth orlans are often found as slaves. In the Dyrwood this is not officially the case thanks to a treaty with Eir Glanfath, but finding hearth orlans in indentured servitude is not unusual.

Physiology and culture[edit | edit source]

Hearth orlans have a thinner coat of fur and are notably less hairy than wild orlans, and generally more accepted by other races because of it.[2] They have tufts of hair on the ears, but otherwise their face is covered with hair much like a typical human. [3]

Culturally, they tend to be much more sedentary in nature than their wild counterparts.
