Centiperson (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Centipeople have the appearance of a humanoid centipede. All thirty of their legs can be used as either hands or feet, usually using their front legs as arms most of the time. A Centiperson has very poor eyesight and will typically view things with their antennae.
Not only are The Centipeople solitary, they are also very territorial and will fight any of their kind that come near. Being carnivorous, they have to compete for resources and don't see themselves as suited for a hive society. Centipeople will commit cannibalism without question.
Like most insect or arachnid creatures, Centipeople have trouble forming common words. As such, most creatures have trouble pronouncing Centipeople names.
