The Varkanína or Wererabbit, referred also as Usagimazoku(兎魔族, Rabbit demon tribe) in Japanese, is one of the minority races in Álfheimr.
As the name implies, the Varkanína are humanoids with rabbit-like characteristics. The most notable feature is the pair of extra rabbit ears above their heads in addition to their regular pointy ears. It is not stated whether or not these rabbit ears serve other than a cosmetic purpose. Their build is generally small. Many of them dedicate themselves to scholarly activities. As such, they normally stay in their labs and are rarely seen in public.
"Varkanína" comes from Icelandic "Var" from "Varúlfur" (werewolf) and "Kanína" (bunny) and it means "man-rabbit".
