No one really knows the origins of the human race. Many say that humans are the result of breeding between the Four Families. Others say that humans are the base stock from which the Four Clans evolved. No one really knows and only the philosophers care. Humans can be part of any of the Four Families and they are the common racial thread that runs through all three political parties.

Cardonia Humans do not possess their own racial clan.  Instead they are scattered among all four clans. It is the nature of the human race that they can be born into any other humanoid race and can also give birth to any other humanoid.  
 
In the Heart Clan, a human birth is considered a burden.  A pure blood elf or even half-elf is much prefered. The short lived human has a hard time bonding with elven siblings which develop more slowly, but ordinarily live hundreds of years longer.  Humans are often scorned or pitied and forced into humble occupations.  The one exception to this is the armed forces in which a human born to a heart family can aquire great glory and status in his or her clan.
 
In the Diamond Clan, the oversized human child has trouble fitting into halfling and gnome communities.  He or she is prized for their greater strength and speed, but have trouble in the classic tumbling and spell casting games of their fellows. Human children often become bullies and beasts of burden in Diamond society, but they often leave their families to join the larger world.
 
In the Club Clan, a human is weaker but more intelligent than his siblings.  Humans are often pick on in a society that prizes neither intellectuals or weaklings.  Human born to the Club Clan often become the most jingoistic in an effort to prove their worth, or become sneaks and schemers that avoid direct conflict.
 
In the Spade Clan, a human struggles to thrive in the dour dwarf community.  A human child often rebels against his dwarven parents repressive domination by acting out.  Many humans of the Spade Clan are drawn to music, art, and dance to express his feelings.  Rarely will a full sized adult human find comfort and acceptance within dwarven communities. 
 
The isolation and dissaproval many humans feel in Cardonia leads many into rebelion.  By far humans are the most common race in the "Wild" political party. 

Human Heritage Feats

Not all mixed heritage characters have a dramatic expression of their ancestry (such as the Half-Elf and Half-Orc). Racial Heritage Feats are only available as the “initial” feats (1 or 2) of the character at creation. Each provides a minor ability of an ancestor or a unique improvement through genetic blending. Additionally, any person with one of these feats is likely to have physical traits that correspond with it. Pointed ears, sharpened canines, oddly colored eyes, heavy facial hair, or odd skin color would all be indications of a mixed heritage. A character with one of these feats is still considered to be "human" in regards to race and magic effects.
