The Vyrian race are denizens of Abaddon, the plane of Daemons and other Neutral Evil monstrosities. However, Vryian are not all of the same alignment as their neighbors, in fact the Vyrian are known as the Hunters or the Stalkers by the creatures of the evil planes. Vyrian live among those that they hunt in a constant struggle to stay alive in such a hostile environment, living either as hermits or in small mobile groups so to not incite a massive organized daemon offensive against themselves. Vyrian learn at a very young age to live by themselves and when and how to pick fights, only doing what is necessary to stay alive, meaning that old Vyrian are very rare sights in Abaddon. However, if put into a group, a Vyrian can be a very useful gauge of how battles are progressing and can help support the party via Survival knowledge.

Physical Characteristics:

Vyrians commonly cover themselves in black clothing, usually large cloaks that cover most of their body from the neck down. They commonly keep their heads free of clothing so to keep all of their senses at their peak, as it is imperative for Vyrian to be aware at all times to not fall prey to the daemons and other foul creatures they hunt. Their skin is usually shades of brown to dark green and their hair usually matches their skin color. They have 6 fingers on each hand that help them in climbing and the bones in their arms extend past their elbows into a point, which help them be more aerodynamic. They do not have horns on their heads, like many of the evil plane denizens, but do have small spikes jutting forward from the back of their palms toward the tips of the fingers which act as handguards and as a tool to help Vyrian latch onto precarious ledges while climbing. Vyrian also have three eyes, one on the forehead and two more closer to their ears which allow them to see 360 degrees around themselves.

Society:

Vyrian are usually solitary beings since they need to survive in extremely harsh environments and the less to keep track of, the better. This is one of the reasons that the Vyrian race are few and far between, since Vyrian are content to spend their lives moving from one place to another alone and thus do not always mind someone to produce more Vyrian. Sometimes, Vyrian travel in small groups, which usually produce small Vyrian families, but the two Vyrian must first come across one another in the Abaddon waste.

Relations:

Vyrian don’t usually interact with other humanoid races, the extent of their interaction with these races are if they happen to wander into the Abaddon plane since many Vyrian do not get the chance to travel to other planes. How they would react when in the presence of other races would likely vary, but they would not become the charismatic center of the group, even though they may take up the position of intelligent leader.

Alignment and Religion:

Vyrian are not inherintly evil, even though they are denizens of Abaddon. Some are hardened by the life they live and become evil like the beings they hunt but for the most part they stay exclusively neutral. Good Vyrian are almost unheard of, unless the Vyrian in question was not born and raised in as harsh of an environment as Abaddon. They also don’t worship gods usually, as they believe in their own strength to guide them and keep them alive, they will actually consider the worship of a deity foolish or weak.

Adventurers:

As Adventurers, Vyrian Are very capable physical fighters, commonly sticking to ranged combat or Wizardry, as best compliments their high intelligence. They can do up-close fighting too and if they do they they would rather use larger swords and other bladed weapons, not smaller weapons like daggers, which they consider too small to take out real foes, the ones they commonly face in Abaddon.
