Ani-Men, Tiger-Man (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Tiger-men are passion in its pure form. They usually act on impulse, but such impulse is rarely selfish or harmful. They love nature and the wild, viewing as a place of freedom, and they will never suffer those who would impose their ways on others.

Physical Description[edit]

The tiger-men are the tallest of the ani-men, with a few of their brethren being over 7 feet tall. They normally weight around 280 pounds, with the women not being much less. Their skin is usually unseen as they have a thin coat of fur on their bodies that is colored orange with black stripes. Their heads are shaped like a human's, but their hair is always worn long and is orange with thin streaks of black.

Tiger-men are slightly longer living than humans, reaching adulthood at 15 and usually living at least a hundred years.


Tiger-men are always able to find friends with humans as their ability to adapt allows to them to adjust to a tiger-man's appearance very easily. Though they do not associate much with the warforged, they do share common ground in that they are both people who feel (and sometimes are) outcast, but they go about it in different ways. Since they are often at home in the wild, tiger-men have excellent relations with elves.


Tiger-men love living in the wild, so they are usually chaotic. They enjoy the rush of freedom above all else and will gladly fight for the freedom of others, making many tiger-men chaotic good.


Tiger-men are not much for claiming an area, though they usually call small areas in the jungle and the forest their home. Tiger-men will usually go into cities only if they are with a group. They do not like crowds and cramped spaces of the city.


Tiger-men care little about religion and rarely worship a deity. However, in rare situations, you might find a tiger-man worshipping Obad-Hai, the god of nature.


All tiger-man speak Common, but they rarely pick up a second language. Even if they do, their oft-secluded lifestyles make learning other languages difficult.


All ani-men take human names, and the tiger-men are no different.
