Pales are bipedal, dark-pelted creatures that inhabit the forest surrounding the Mansion of E. They tend to be bad-tempered, reclusive and ill-disposed towards outsiders. This is however only a tendency: a solitary Pale will occasionally venture into the Basement where they are treated as objects of mild curiosity.
Pales do not have names as such: instead they are primarily known by job titles.
Pales are particularly unfriendly towards the Forest Gnolls, and there are vague reports of ongoing skirmishes between the two species.
There is a large Pale population in the desert province of Shibolith.
