Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: I believe this is overpowered. I estimate it to be 10 or more on this scale, where 4.5 is the target.

Physical Description[edit]

Yuan-ti HalfBreeds possesses a humanoid head and torso and a long, serpentine tail. They are generally slender, with lithe bodies that, in some cases, mask the strength hidden within their reptilian musculature. Their eyes have a reptilian slit pupil, while yuan-ti bear themselves with a cold, arrogant indifference or contempt towards others, even of their own kin, their halfblood kin are far more empathetic towards others.


The Yuan-ti HalfBreeds are a byproduct of Yuan-ti and their slave inter breeding. Yuan-ti that keep these offsprings keep them as slaves, used for sacrificial rituals, used as bait for hunting greater beast and are even cannibalized for food.


HalfBreeds unlike their cousins they do not seem to hold the same cruelty with in them and can become extremely empathetic to a fault. In the Yuan-ti society HalfBreed slaves try their best to stick together, sharing food with any Halfbreeds that are sick and injured.Those knowing their fate in Yuan-ti society they will try their best to sneak gold and other treasures to buy safe passage away from Faerun and the Houses of the Coiled Cabal. Once they find their freedom they quickly realized that they are shunned by other races do to the their serpent appearance and easily being mistaken for their cruel cousins of the Yuan-ti Houses.

Yuan-ti HalfBreed Names[edit]
