From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Often depends on the base creature they take after, but all Daiyokai are honorable in their actions. They believe they are superior to the other races, more so to the humans.

Physical Description[edit]

Beautiful in their appearance, both female and male when in human form. Often there are markings on them to denote noble houses or regions. Their true forms take on the appearance of their beast.


Daiyokai see humans as unintelligent worthless things, and often don't get along with them. They avoid them when given the chance. Elves and elf like races they see as better than humans, and tolerable. Dwarves they find useful in their skills with their hands in building and standard labor. All other races they often don't see worth their time.




The most powerful Daiyokai tend to claim land as their own. They they range and very from Daiyokai to Daiyokai.


Daiyokai tend not to believe any any one god, believing what they see not based on faith.
