Wyverians (Japanese 竜人族) are a race found throughout the Monster Hunter series.

What are Wyverian?

Wyvernians superficially resemble humans, but they have several traits that suggest a wyvern ancestry. They have pointed ears, four fingered hands, digitigrade legs, and an increased lifespan. Some Wyvernians can live for hundreds of years. They reproduce less often than humans, resulting in a smaller population. Interestingly, Wyvernians tend to shrink in their old age, with some exceptions.

Similar to humans, they have different ethnicities and cultures. The First Wyvernians, for example, have a language that's less about words and more about "vibrations".[1]

A Wyverian's Thinking

Wyvernians think differently than humans, perhaps in part due to their increased lifespan, and are often considered more intelligent and rational than humans. Some Wyvernians have an extensive education, more than a human can learn in a feasible timespan, and are versed in multiple subjects.[2] They are also more attuned to nature, which they greatly respect. They are more peaceful than humans and prefer to avoid conflict, but still recognize the value of Hunters. In fact, they were the first Hunters, but eventually gave way to the human-centric Hunter's Guild and transitioned into a supporting role. There are very few Wyvernian Hunters today, and are considered rarities.

Wyvernian humor is strange by human standards.[3]

Coexistence With Humans

Wyvernians peacefully coexist with humans and often live among them, especially older individuals past their prime. Younger Wyvernians are known to travel far and wide, often accompanying humans.
