Humes, for the most part, could be considered Vanadiel's equivalent to humans. They are both a common and popular choice of characters among FFXI players.

Humes could be considered a “Jack of all trades,” in the sense that they are able to perform exceptionally well with any job they choose.
Hume population is primarily concentrated in Bastok, where they originated and continue to prosper.
