        Correct. Wild Man spawned the Hsunchen off of the
appropriate animal types. Even the Kralori can tell that the
Hsunchen look like humans, and act like beasts. And that the
Hsunchen are better off looking like humans than being beasts, and

        Hsunchen are wild and ferocious animals. Broos are wild and
ferocious animals. Aldryami are civilized, but potentially
