See above, regarding: GENERIC FANTASY.
To clarify, as apparently I didn't, the setting is a generic, unspecified fantasy world of my description. As far as specific character types, so long as people can clear it with me that it's workable in a generic fantasy setting, then it's workable in this world. It's a deliberately non-specific world, which means realistically we could have kender AND hobbits AND halfling all running around, all differentiatable (is that even a word? I declare it a word now.) from one another by their quirky racial characteristics, beyond the fact of being humanoid short people.
Besides which, Kender are specific to a fiction series, and weren't D&D creatures anyway. Maybe you were thinking Kobold?
