Humans, also referred to as everymen (everyman, singular) are one of the two dominant types of intelligent life in the Harthe Alle, which is shared with their rivals, the monsters. They have colonised much of the known world except for those areas which are still ruled by monsters, with whom they have warred since time immemorial.
The origins of humans are largely obscure. However it is revealed by the Lapinduce that both humans and monsters have a common origin, being "'born of mud as are we'". This is supported by the hybrid human and animal forms that the monster-lords take. There are also monsters which appear human but have monster blood, known as manikins. Humans and monsters can communicate with each other by speech.
