Typical talpini

Members of the Mole King's Court and Royal Guard

The Talpini are a society of anthropomorphic, mole-like, sentient beings that live beneath Paris. Most of the world is apparently unaware of their existence, but they are known to the Master of Paris and his family, as well as Jiminez Hoffmann. Gilgamesh Wulfenbach also seems to know of their existence; there seem to be some working with his people on the time-tunneling project beneath Mechanicsburg. They are ruled by a Moligarchy headed by a King. They seem be, on the average, about half the average height of human beings. They are known for being suspicious and xenophobic; strangers who encounter them by accident are likely to be made into gloves, which the Talpini wear most of the time.

Cinderella Edit

In the Cinderella story break, Gil and Tarvek are desperate to find a wife in order to escape a clause in their trade agreement with the Mole People ("a bad idea") that would otherwise require them to marry Princess Whomper and Lady Gronk.

Possibly relevant outside information Edit

In Linnaean taxonomy, European moles are members of the order Soricomorpha ("shrew-like animals"), family Talpidae, subfamily Talpinae, and tribe Talpini.

One thing to note is that real-world moles have six digits on their hands.
