Historical Background[edit]

Derived from Zulu mythology, the Abatwa were tiny humans that could ride ants and hide among the grass. They would only tolerate being seen by children, pregnant women, and magicians, and they were very sensitive about their size. If you met one they would ask where you had seen them from. If you didn't answer that it was from a far away place they would try to kill you.
