There are several races living on the Islands, most of which are not native. If you were to ask anyone from the Liendrel Clan, they would tell you that many seasons have turned since the first ones came during that terrible storm that changed the islands from a tame hospitable place to live to the now sometimes savage place they call home.
If you are lucky enough you may even get to sit in on the annual Liendrel festival where stories are passed to the young from the old and where the rites of manhood are observed.
Counted among the races are the Liendrel, humans, halflings, orcs, gnomes, dwarves, dragonborn, tieflings, most half-breeds plus several others that are few in number. Although no one has taken a census the total population of the islands are roughly estimated at around 1000 or so.
