Very little is known about mimics. All that is known is from brief encounters with them. In general, there are two types of mimics, classified by size - small, and large. Smaller mimics tend to be intelligent enough to converse and are benevolent in exchange for tokens of gratitude. Larger mimics tend to be more hostile and dangerous to all species.
Overal, mimics have unique qualities. They tend to take the form of chests or furniture as camouflage when waiting for prey, and, upon contact, they are very sticky and hold fast to their prey. Humans have been known to lose limbs to mimics.
Something less seen is a mimic changing form to copy a human's appearance - although the appearances are never spot on.
