Dai-Yokai are creatures of Japanese lore who tend to be arrogant.


Dai-Yokai are a war driven race who love to fight. They hate humans and avoid them if possible.

Physical Description[edit]

Dai-Yokai often resemble an oriental half-elf, with the skin, eyes and hair of those from the east, but also with elvish shaped ears and razor sharp claws. Some Dai-Yokai may also have unusual eye or hair color that further extinguishes them from the other races. Dai-Yokai are often of similar size as humans, 4'5" to 5'5" and 100+ lbs., whilst females tend to be of a smaller stature. But with size as with other things, it varies. Their alternate animal form is usually kept secret.


Dai-Yokai have good relations with Elves and Tengus but not with others.


Dai-Yokai gravitate toward Chaotic alignment. They are honorable and their behavior sometimes makes things 'messy'. They don't gravitate toward good or evil.


Dai-Yokai have no lands, they simply wander. Rarely a Dai-Yokai may settle in a community.


Dai-Yokai have no religion, though great warriors of their race are revered as gods.


Dai-Yokai due to their affiliation with Elves speak Elvish, and Common languages.


Dai-Yokai are given names by their parents.

Example of Name: Shiba, Nala, Koga
