Humanoids are living beings that have a basic human-shaped body plan, including two arms and two legs. This shape is the most common for sapients in the multiverse. On some worlds, sapient quadrupeds are capable of standing on hind legs and using their paws or hooves as crude hands. Even the Elder Gods, who can assume any form at will, generally favor a humanoid form.
Those who have claimed to have witnessed have reported Eru have described him as having a humanoid shape regardless of their own form. From this, it has been speculated that Eru was a humanoid being in his original form and favors the development of humanoid species.
The term demihuman is used for members of species that closely resemble humans, such as elves or dwarves. Those whose ancestry can be reliably traced back to a version of humans on Earth can be classified as members of the genus Homo.
