Arkadius (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Born on a hellish plane of fire and volcanic rock where they carve out a simplistic living to pass the eons of their life they resort to fighting and over the centuries the race developed a natural hatred of other living creatures, creating heartless killing machines.


Cold, heartless, and tactical with a racial craving to murder those around them, these beings are the ultimate killing machine. They kill anything that so much as looks in their direction. Though on a rare occasion an Arkadius will spare a creatures life if it deemed it to pathetic to even deserve death.

Physical Description[edit]

Between 6-7ft tall humanoids weighing in between 150-200 lbs with luminescent red markings, resembling jagged cracks and swirls, running all across their body. Their arms and legs have fused with the volcanic rock of their plane creating a jagged natural armor and claws. Normally with white or grey hair and red smoldering eyes. They appear to have a build closer to that of an elf regardless of how large their strength is.


this race rarely gets along with any other race, and Arkadius would sooner kill you, your family, and your entire race before you give him your name. they seem to have a slightly less aggressive relation with tieflings aside from that they pretty much hate everything.


anything chaotic or evil


their home plane the name is completely incomprehensible to nearly all beyond the Arkadius race.


they have no religion and care only for fighting


infernal, Arkadian


the name an Arkadius receives is the same name of their first kill past that point the name is their own until they are killed.
