Hmmm...now I'm pondering making a Kender-turned-Haregon monk named Jaxx.
He accidentally offended a mage when he took the wizard's spell component pouch off the red robe to find out if it really contained a demon inside. When the rather now red-faced (who knew they could get their faces to match their robes?) wizard caught up with him and retrieved his pouch, he gave the Kender a "magic demonstration" and turned the Kender into a green-furred rabbitoid and left in a huff.
Amazed by this change, the transformed Kender left his homeland (after having his new race dubbed Haregon by misunderstanding travelers he met for "Hare today, gone tomorrow"), the Kender wandered into Solamnia where he was taken in by a monastic order who felt sorry for the little bugger. After partially completing his training, he's now back to wandering, taking the mystical skills he ...uh, learned... with him.
