Paidion, a word in Dialektos Magos that means "little one", are a humanoid kind of short stature, but quick wit and hands. Sometimes derogatorily referred to as 'halflings', the paidion appear as miniature versions of Humans standing no more than 4' tall. Paidion live twice as long as humans on average, sometimes longer. They tend toward professions requiring agility and dexterity. There is little difference between the men and the women except for the obvious. Paidion males even tend to have long hair in various styles like their female counterparts.
