Description: Gorgos average between three and eight feet tall with wiry to brawny builds, and skin and hair shades much like humans, though some might even have shades of red, purple, blue, or green instead, and eye colors of blue, gray, green, red, amber, or yellow typically, that become cloudy white when using their Far Sight. Gorgos have long flowing hair that seems to move about on it’s own as if alive. Gorgos tend to have various features depending on their Surreal Potential. Appearance can vary drastically depending on the diet of a Gorgo. Maids tend to have skin of paler shades of the above with some having an otherworldly beauty and grace about them with non existent to sparse facial and body hair. Crones tend to have skin of darker shades with some having a more reptilian or bug like appearance both in face and body with non existent to sparse facial and body hair, but might have scales or chitinous plates. Hags tend to have skin of very pale, almost sickly shades with all having a more monstrous appearance both in face and body, their hair becoming stringy and greasy with sparse to non existent facial and body hair, but could be covered or at least partially covered in scales or chitinous plates.
