Locale: Scaria, Haunted Kingdom
The Scarians are the pumpkin like NPCs of the Haunted Kingdom. which is inspired largely by Eastern Europe, but Romania especially. They are mostly a peaceful race who just like to have fun. That fun being bobbing for apples, scaring people, and making candy.
However, they are scared by two things. Those being the Sadamuras and the Vacamacs. However, Mario is able to keep them safe.
They also seem to enjoy eating sausage and other foods accosted with Eastern Europe.
