Edit A halfling is a short humanoid and the smallest of the civilized races of Golarion. They tend to be around three feet tall, though mostly human in proportion, with perhaps rounder heads and slightly more childlike proportions.
Their coloration is as variable as the locales they call home. Their skin tends to be somewhere between a rich almond color and a pale nut-brown. Many have brown hair, though quite a large proportion of them are as fair as the Ulfen. The eyes of halflings tend to be fair, with green and blue being the most common colors. Many, though not all, have variations in color that make them seem more similar to other humanoids, typically humans, who live in the region they share.
All halflings have very durable feet, the soles of which are very tough. Halflings have a fine growth of soft, warm hair on the tops of their feet to keep them warm.
Males generally only grow facial hair as sideburns, and tend to be a good two to three inches taller. Females are slimmer and shorter, appearing much like a human woman of half size, though both sexes typically have pleasant round faces, and big cheery smiles.
History Edit Halflings grew up among the human cultures of Avistan , alongside and often overlooked the growth and success of those nations and regions they inhabited, they have their own rich tales and heroes that few of the bigger folk have ever even guessed at.
Often working in service professions such as maids, cooks, and innkeepers, halflings tend to find themselves in the perfect position to observe the world around them.
This knowledge is invaluable to a halfling, given their generally defenseless position. It is not uncommon for halflings to be exploited for their labor, and they are one of the most common races of slaves in the Inner Sea region, especially in Cheliax , where they are seen as less-than-people.

Source Inner Sea Races pg. At once excitable and easy-going, halflings like to keep an even temper and a steady eye on opportunity, and are not as prone to violent or emotional outbursts as some of the more volatile races. Even in the jaws of catastrophe, halflings almost never lose their sense of humor. Their ability to find humor in the absurd, no matter how dire the situation, often allows halflings to distance themselves ever so slightly from the dangers that surround them. This sense of detachment can also help shield them from terrors that might immobilize their allies.

The same art forms the inside back cover, while the inside front cover is a list of halfling racial abilities as per the Core Rulebook and a list of favored halfling deities, along with their portfolios, domains, favored weapons, etc. Often enslaved and mistreated, halflings have made a virtue of blending in with the crowd: they survive and thrive by rarely being noticed by the far larger, stronger, and more dramatic races around them. The rest of the book does a fantastic job incorporating these themes, making it a far more coherent Player Companion than some more recent ones that sometimes seem to be little more than a random collection of feats and spells. The first five pages, covering the history of halflings in Golarion and exploring their physical and mental traits, are well-written and interesting.
