Bariaur are creatures born with the urge to wander and search. A nomadic people comfortable in the wilderness and with grand hospitality for strangers, bariaur are friendly and carefree, walking through the world with an open attitude. Some mistake this for frivolity, but the bariaur are known to be fierce combatants who shirk from no threat upon them or their friends. Many bariaur wander the planes in nomadic tribes, and many people from those tribes become adventurers, at least for a time, as it is a great way to see the worlds.
