Nephilii tend to get along with well with humans and races of the non-demonic sort. They tend to keep some respectible distance and pacifistic attitude towards Angels, some are afraid of Angels. That isn't to say they won't defend themselves. Demons it's a tendancy to attack and/or be hostile. Above all else, however, an attack on a Nephilii is usually met with brutal retalliation.


Nephilii can easily vary in alignment. Any Good is normal. Exceptions do exist.


Varies, generally mountains.


Nephilii follow paragons of their alignment. Otherwise it is unknown what the consensus is.


Nephilii have tongues always active. They can understand and spoken language and any creature with a language can understand them.
