Sergal, Variant (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Their basic disposition is crude and gruff in personality, they don't worry about minor details, and they easily forget about things that aren't of much importance. Because many have broadly simple thinking, one possible upside is that they're not particularly good at holding a grudge and such. Due to their actions/movements being similarly rough and bold, they're not well-suited for work which requires fine motor skills and concentration. Their intelligence is not very high; the average Sergal's intelligence is considered to be no more than around that of a 14-year-old human male. Sergals are pretty much either combatants such as soldiers or they become laborers like construction workers and perform mainly simple tasks in industrial work. "Strength" is more highly regarded than smarts and birthplace. The extent of one's fighting power is what is considered to be admirable.

Physical Description[edit]

The head and nose shape is similar to sharks, and there are pointed ears which extend backwards. The ear holes normally cannot be seen because they are completely covered with fur. There is a mane that covers the back of their long neck from the back of the head down to the area around the shoulder blade.

The eye color is usually grey~blue. The average height is upwards of 183~196cm (6'-6'5"). The structure of their cry is similar to a mix between birds and dinosaurs.

Their fur has a straightforward two-tone color scheme: In addition to white as a secondary color, The main colors of Northern Sergals are cool colors and the main colors of Southern Sergals are warm colors. The two-color scheme pattern is easy to understand, just imagine a shark: the belly is mainly white, and the back is a darker color. The border between the two colors is clearly separated. Patterns such as stripes and spots are not common.

The eyes are attached sideways as in crocodiles and lizards, so they can't focus on a single point. Because of this, trying to use projectile weapons like guns and bows are their weak point. The pupils are vertical like reptiles.

The end of the mouth and the eye are in roughly the same vertical alignment. If the mouth is open, the meaty band at the end of the mouth stretches similar to what's seen in reptiles. The mouth can be opened very wide. Furthermore, due to the throat structure, prey such as naturally small animals are swallowed whole.

There is a thick black lower lip from the front edge of the lower jaw to the middle of the sides, and it resembles those found in canines, etc. Sharp fangs exist from the area around the base of the jaw, these fangs are equivalent to canine teeth. The fangs' shape is curved like barbs toward the back of the throat.The incisors are extremely small and almost invisible from the outside.There are those whose tongue is split at the tip like a snake, however this is not by nature but instead, it’s cut merely for fashion or as a kind of "warpaint." Near the back of the throat there are diagonally oriented pleats cutting into both sides of the tongue.

The arms, chest, shoulders, breast, abdomen, and waist are approximately human, but one distinction is that the "<" notch at the sternum from the middle of the chest is much more prominent. Because there is a dense mass of chest fur around this ridge, it's often thought to be merely a lump of fur but there is actually a bone protrusion.For this reason, Sergal armor and clothing is constructed with a wide raised portion at the sternum. Because the position and shape of the sternum is different for every individual, the protruding portion may be lower, and there are also individuals with it in the middle.


Are rarely seen in other planes existence aside from the their native plane. However some groups have been known to inhabit various other planes in much smaller groups.


Sergals tend to favor being chaotic neutral as they don't have a large hand in the great good and always look out for their own. Being natural hunters and still fairly primal they tend to follow their instincts and intuition rather than the rules of the land.


Dependent on the original race of sergal they may be more comfortable in the harsh winter climates to the dry desert like climates. The color of their fur is a good indicator of their origin. Darker color sergals are normally from a harsher cold climate having thicker coats as well while lighter color of fur is normally indicative of a temperate or desert climate.


Because the northern sergal live in areas close to dangerous primitive creatures, their original way of life centered on hunting and religion continues to this day.


Sergals more often than not speak common rarely dipping into other languages as they find common easy enough and typically lack the intellect.
