Shou are Humans originally from the Empire of Shou Lung in the eastern lands of Kara-Tur. In recent years, many Shou have migrated to Thesk and other lands of Faerûn. Many cities, such as Mulsantir, Phsant, Telflamm, and Westgate, now have “Shou Town” districts within their walls.
They mostly keep to their own and have their own organisations, faith and politics. They do not make close friends with the Faerun people easy and do not share their ways openly. Therefore many is unknown about these people.
Shou have yellowish-bronze skin, black hair, and broad, flat features. The Shou language uses the Draconic alphabet.
