In the country of Collos is the volcano Dragonheart. Each day, smoke and fire burst from it in great gouts and the black smoke make the air unbreathable by most. All that can survive here are demons, norkers and Collosnans.

Collosnon are human in shape but with troll-like features, with ashen skin covered in small cracks through which red light shines. They have long fingers, noses and teeth. Their teeth and nails are black. Most have a semblance of hair, black or grey smoke curling from their heads, giving the impression of a flowing mane.
Playing a Collosnon
Collosnon, being created very particularly from the meeting of Half-Trolls with tainted ash, are not completely a widespread race. Most are part of a clan, a mixture of two or three family groups, living in caves in the volcano. If, however, two Collosnon from rival clans meet, they fight to the death. Those with features deemed too trollish are ousted from the clan, condemned to live as feral creatures, wandering the caves. Collosnon regularly attack human settlements, both for food, and for causing destruction. Most Collosnon revel in death. They see the world like a match to be struck, a candle to be lit. They have taken it upon themselves to bring the holy conflagration to the world of men. Of course, not all take this view, but those who do not are often killed or exiled.
Collosnon, while absorbing the heat of a fire or the sun for an hour a day is necessary to keeping them alive, prefer the ever-present heat of the volcano. They can breath ash, and prefer it to air. In the south, away from Dragonheart, poor parents tell their children of the Collosnon, sometimes calling them Cindermen, how, if they leave a precious candle burning by their bed, a Collosnon will be standing there when it goes out.
