Legend of Zelda: An RPG to the Past
The Minish, also known as Picori, are a diminutive race from beyond the land of Hyrule. When the Minish entered the world they found that darkness was invading and created the Picori Blade and the Light Force to aid humanity. They are known well for their great craftsmanship and magical ability. Minish also delight in making Humanity happy, which they do from their mouse holes spread across Hyrule. Important to note is that Minish can only be seen by those with Good in their hearts.
Minish stand barely taller than an adult’s thumb and look strikingly similar to mice, with four fingers and four toes. Minish appearances vary greatly, but they always have pale skin, large beady eyes, and feather-like tails. Some Minish have grown beards, and their hair always turns white with age. They have to wear hand tailored clothing, considering their size, and depending of where they live these clothes may even be made of plant-life. Minish never grow more than a few inches tall.
