What makes satyr names unique?
Much like satyrs themselves, their names have an air of myth and intrigue. Most believe the goddess Nylea gave all satyrs their names ages ago during the birth of the Skola Vale. However, knowing a satyr's actual name can sometimes be challenging. Their mischievous and impulsive nature often leads them to change or lie about their names in the hopes of experiencing a new emotion, reaction, or adventure.
What are satyrs?
When present in their physical forms, satyrs embody the symbolic union of civilized humanoids with the free and wild beasts of Theros. Typically, they appear most similar to humans, with a wide range of builds and features. However, their goatlike horns, pointed ears, and fur-covered lower bodies distinguish them from other animalistic humanoids. Satyr's solid spiral horns grow from the base of their skulls while their legs end in stout hooves. Their fur is thickest from the waist down, growing longer as it reaches their feet, with shorter, softer hair sprouting around their neck, spine, shoulders, and forearms.
Satyrs are well known for their joyful demeanor, gregarious disposition, and love of celebrations and festivals. Their basic desires drive most to see the world and sample every pleasure they can. At times, a Satyr's impulsive and fanciful nature may put them at odds with more hardened individuals, but they rarely let the behavior of others influence their pursuit of happiness. After all, satyrs believe life at its base is a blessing from the gods. One fortunate enough to receive such a gift should accept it with gusto.
Where do satyrs live?
Along the eastern border of Oreskos, in the moors of the Oraniad Mountains, lies the Skola Vale. Blessed by Nylea, the land is lush, grassy, and dotted with copses of trees, thickets, and other scrubs. The goddess's magic provides for all within her domain, allowing satyrs and other creatures to roam comfortably without the need for permanent settlements. According to legend, overcome with the valley's beauty, Nylea poured the contents of her wineskin onto the Vale to allow it to thrive indefinitely. The original satyrs were born of the wild goats who first drank her enchanted wine.
Most satyrs believe a plague of seriousness woefully burdens their neighboring peoples. They scoff at the city-builders and policy-makers and mock the deep-thinking philosophers who endlessly theorize and debate amongst their peers. Satyrs believe that life should be lived and experienced through all of the senses. The world exists as a book of endless delights, and they wish to explore every page in great detail.
The residents of the nearby city-states conversely believe the satyrs to be raucous debauchers, capable of any and everything unsavory. While this may not be completely untrue, not all of the revelry is depraved and wicked. The satyr's way of life celebrates delight in the small things as well: the soothing song of a bird, a warming summer breeze, the sweet aroma of delicious pie, or even relaxing by the river in the sun. These are the free and joyful gifts of life, and for a satyr, they are more precious than fame or fortune. Revelry is to forget time constraints, and those who practice relinquish past regrets, future hopes, and exist wholly in the moment. Experiencing life through all of one's senses honors the gods, and perhaps most important to the satyrs, feels quite good. Being driven by instinct and intuition can make life unpredictable, as most satyrs will blindly follow their sense of wonder wherever it may lead.
