The term halfling is the colloquial name of an offshoot species of humanity, with the scientific designation of Homo sapiens ex animalis. Halflings first appeared in the Mazes approximately 413 years ago, roughly at the same time as magicians did.

Halflings resemble humans at first glance, but possess several animalistic traits differentiating them from humans, appearing to be a cross between human and animal. They are completely sapient and civilized, and have integrated into settlements and society at large since their discovery. There exists 7 different halfling sub-species, each one possessing traits and elements from a different animal. All halflings are biologically compatible with each other, humans, and by extension, with youkai, and all have retained the human's omnivore diet.

Salientia halflings possess amphibian features on an otherwise human-like body, and are genetically related to frogs and toads. Specifically, they lack a human-like nose, instead possessing two simple nostril orifices. They possess a long, semi-prehensile tongue, with which they can grab small objects and bits of food. Their eyes possess large, horizontal slitted irises, just like a frog's. Similarly to snakepeople, they do possess human-like ears, but they are much smaller than normal.

By far the most visually striking and easily recognized part of a salientia halfling's body is their skin. Their skin not only has the full range of regular human skin colors but also many other colors natural in regular frogs and toads; virtually every color of the rainbow is naturally occurring (with green and yellow as most common, and blue, purple and pink as rarest), and with many different natural patterns (spotted, striped, blotches, etc.), some of which can even be bicolor or most rarely, tricolor. Each individual has a unique skin pattern, and many enjoy wearing clothing assorted to their natural skin color and patterns.

Colloquially, a salientia halfling may be referred to as a toadperson (toadboy and toadgirl are also commonly employed, sometimes substituted with frog- as a prefix). On average, they are about the same height as humans, averaging at 5 feet 7 inches, and have slightly higher average weights, at 170 pounds for males and 125 for females. Like humans, however, the actual height and weight may vary greatly between individuals.

Salientia halflings are omnivorous, and contrary to their animal counterparts, do not have a preference for insects. Instead, many seem to favor vegetarian diets supplemented mainly with fish. The semi-prehensile tongue of a frogperson is the subject of many and various raunchy stereotypes, ranging from kissing to sexual prowess. Possessing slightly higher average muscle mass than humans, as well as highly colorful and visually striking bodies, many frogpersons are frequently concerned with their appearance and the development of both their personal beauty and strength. Many famous bodybuilders and melee fighting specialists are frogpersons, while many others have achieved successful careers as dancers and strippers.
