Female Tarutaru

The Tarutaru are a race of skilled magic users who call Windurst their home. Although the Tarutaru physically resemble children, their size does not reflect their age. Masters of the magical arts, the Tarutaru have honed their abilities through dutiful study of the world around them.

Their dedication and hard work fueled the rapid reconstruction of Windurst after its destruction in the Crystal War. The Tarutaru enjoy a friendly relationship with the Mithra, who call Windurst their home as well.

The Childlike Tarutaru[edit]

The Tarutaru are the most skilled race when it comes to the use of magic. They originated from the Fauregandi Region from which they were eventually led to the Sarutabaruta Region which they now call home. They are the creators of the magical automatons known as Cardians. Tarutaru children are, in fact, smaller than the adults, but the entire race has child-like proportions compared to the other races. They are among the most dedicated, yet childish races of Vanadiel. They welcomed the Mithra into their home of Windurst at some point in history, and the two races have lived together in peace and harmony ever since. The only thing threatening that peace is a race of Beastmen that call themselves the Yagudo.

Tarutaru are unique in using a network of skilled mages for teleportation around their sprawling home, Windurst. Two brothers provide a similar service for the residents of Al Zahbi and Aht Urhgan Whitegate.

A Tarutaru in Lower Jeuno, Parike-Poranke uses a unique form of "Brown Magic" to remove food effects.

Player Culture[edit]

Many Players tend to experience "Taru love" or "Taru Hate" which seems to be polar opposite sides of how players tend to feel about the Tarutaru.

One group seems to love the little Tarutaru players seeing them as a cute novelty and something to be adored. Others see the Tarutaru as an overly cute and annoying race, a nuisance rather than a reliable ally.

More than often though this attitude goes more to the affectionate as the Tarutaru have some of the cutest emotes and no doubt their pint size gives great appreciation when they take on more melee classes such as paladins, dark knights and monks. There have been many cases where the sheer novelty of a Tarutaru Paladin makes them far more sought after to have a pint sized tank in action. Their outrageously large MP pool also comes in handy for melee classes that rely on MP.
