Three sample Crocodilian adventurers are described below.
Harakesh is a Crocodilian ranger. She is of the Gharial sub-type and is oddly colored for her clan. Harakesh has light brown skin with a tan underside, and she is highly sought after by Crocodilian men. Most days were spent training her younger sister until she was taken captive by a band of Crocodilian marauders. Now she wanders the swamp as a solitary hunter searching for traces of her lost sister.
Charoo is a Crocodilian fighter. Charoo was the son of a progressive Crocodilian who sought unification of the clans. The ideals of his father eventually lead to his demise, and Charoo has inherited many of these. Now he leads a small band of raiders that target small trade boats as they travel through the swamp, however their loyalties only lie with the highest bidder.
Sharlene is a Crocodilian rogue. Sharlene has no memory of any family and has been alone for as long as she has been drawing a bow. Sharlene has poor social skills and as such doesn't have any friends, although she longs for companionship. She enjoys searching through the wrecks of ships in the small atolls of the island collecting trinkets which she trades for books.
