Continuing on the Sesame Street builds, I bring you the Elmin, obviously built off of Elmo.
Every city and land has one; an intoxicatingly happy district full of these little red balls of fluff. Elmin sing, dance, laugh, and try to see the good in everything they encounter. An Elmin will always refer to itself in third person.
Physical Description: Having the same height range as gnomes, Elmin are covered in thick, vibrant red hair and have a large nose which serves as their main method of sensory input. They are toothless omnivores, are surprisingly agile yet very weak.
Society: Whilst rich in their own culture, Elmin embody the virtue of sharing, and will immerse themselves in the company of any who will allow it. They bond well, often have fairs, parties and parades and will attempt to involve everything and everyone in the fun.
Relations: Very loving, Elmin will attempt to get on well with everything; though often finalise a life partner of either their own kind or of the gnomes in their old age. Half-Gnomes, only producible through Elmin, take on no traits other than the thick red hair of their Elmin parentage.
Alignment and Religion: Elmin find it very difficult to be anything other than kind and happy, and therefore all are good. Their religious devotion varies, from including the Gods in every aspect of their lives to happily assuming that they're pleasing somebody up there.
Adventurers: Like Gnomes, Elmin suffer from The Bleaching instead of traditional ageing, and thus must maintain happy and active lifestyles in order to stay young. This encourages many Elmin adventurers, who can be found roaming in packs of their own kind or a friends of the big-people.
Male Names: Elmo, Fidel, Crispy, Patrick
Female Names: Elma, Priya, Mabel, Penguin

Author's Note: Here you go, the happy go lucky race based off of Elmo. If any race was more suited to being Bards, I have yet to see it.
