Humanoids

Back To Creatures Page

This section is basically creatures that have a lot of human characteristics or a basic human shape at a similar size.  Some of these could also be used as Heroes.

 

Adlet                            These blood drinking monsters born to a woman and a dog, as such although basically human they are covered

                                    in a coarse hair and have an elongated nose and pointed ears.  It is rumoured that they see in black and white

                                    with the scent of blood overlaid in a crimson red.

                                    Fire:    5        Earth:    5        Water:    3        Air:    2        Powers: See blood scent (allows them to see where

                                                                                                                                blood is and has been)

 

Apotamkin/Asin (m/f)   These are strange hairy man-creatures with long fangs.  They are basically less well developed humans, and

                                    they have a penchant for attacking people that come their way.  They usually go for lone children as these are

                                    easy prey, though what they do with their victims is unknown.

                                    Fire:    3        Earth:    3        Water:    3        Air:    2        Powers: None

 

Baphomet                     This creature is basically a woman, but with two heads, one of a woman and one of a man.  It is unknown if

                                    others exist that are men with two heads, but they seem to intermingle with humans fine.

                                    Fire:    3        Earth:    3        Water:    3        Air:    3        Powers: None

 

Centaur                        The most common type of centaur is a human’s torso with the body of a horse, and when most people say

                                    centaur this is what they mean.  However there do exist human torso's on other animal's torsos, such as bulls,

                                    leopards and elephants.  In general these are referred to by the animals name followed by the word centaur e.g.

                                    Bull Centaur.  The stats given below are for the 4 types listed above.

        Centaur                Fire:    5        Earth:    4        Water:    3        Air:    4        Powers: None

Chiruwi                        These strange men are also known as half-men for obvious reasons.  They are like the right half of a man only,

                                   split directly down the middle, giving them one arm, one leg, one eye etc.  If viewed from one side you'd see a

                                    normal man, viewed from the other they are invisible.  They are very violent, but also possess very good

                                    medicinal skills.

                                    Fire:    4        Earth:    3        Water:    2        Air:    4        Powers:  Skilled healer, invisible from one side.   

 

Civatateo                      These female vampires are endowed with magical powers.  The appear like desiccated corpses, white in colour

                                    and generally have a death's head glyph tattooed on their flesh.  They like to stalk the individual traveller,

                                    particularly in churches and temples.

                                    Fire:    4        Earth:    3        Water:    3        Air:    4        Powers: Regenerate wounds, low level curses, a

                                                                                                                                        calming aura.

 

Ga-gorib                      This strange type of man likes to dig pits and sit on their sides.  When people approach he will taunt them until

                                    they throw objects at him.  Then he reflects the object perfectly back at the thrower so it knocks them into the

                                    pit for later consumption.  A monster guarding pits.  He can only reflect a projectile if he sees it coming

                                    however.

                                    Fire:    4        Earth:    4        Water:    3        Air:    2        Powers:  Reflect projectile.

 

Golem                          This is a man fashioned out of clay.  They tend to be bulky, lack grace of movement and the detail in features

                                    that a 'real' person has.  Nethertheless they are strong and do not need to sleep.  There seems to be several

                                    varieties of Golem but all are enchanted by words either encased/hidden in their body or physically written

                                    on their skin.  Destruction of the spell is the easiest way to defeat one of these constructions.

                                    Fire:    4        Earth:    7        Water:    2        Air:    2        Powers: None   

 

Hai-uri                          This is another half man often mistaken for a Chiruwi but is different in that it is only the left side of a human

                                    and only semi-invisible from the other side.  They move surprisingly fast for someone with only one leg, and

                                    leap over shrubbery in their hunt for prey.

                                    Fire:    5        Earth:    3        Water:    2        Air:    3        Powers: Semi-invisible from side, compulsion to

                                                                                                                                    leap small bushes.

 

Iguana Men                  This type of lizard-man is often mistaken for it's more blood-thirsty kin.  However Iguana men tend to strive to

                                    promote peace throughout the Spheres.  They are skilled craftsmen whose wares are often sought for their

                                    capabilities and magical nature.

                                    Fire:    4        Earth:    4        Water:    3        Air:    4        Powers: Skilled craftsmen, enchant object they've

                                                                                                                                    created.

 

Intulo                            This is a generic name for Lizard-men.  Some say it is a dragon name for them, and that they were made by

                                    the dragons to be a tool in the war against the Gods.  Nethertheless they come in countless varieties, but most

                                    are capable of speaking the Tongue and harbouring a particular hatred for humans.

                                    Fire:    4        Earth:    4        Water:    3        Air:    2        Powers: Cold-blooded.

 

Ipotane                         Most people don't realise that the Ipotane are anything but human most of the time.  This secretive race are

                                    humans with horses hooves instead of feet.  Legends say it is a curse from the god Isten for some long

                                    forgotten sleight, but it may equally be some type of blessing.       

                                    Fire:    4        Earth:    3        Water:    3        Air:    3        Powers: None

 

I’wai                            These crocodile men have a fearsome reputation and rightly so.  These green-hued creatures like nothing more

                                    than eating men's flesh, and their powerful clawed arms and jaws serve them well in this respect.  The only

                                    safe way to deal with them is to never even let them know you are there.

                                    Fire:    5        Earth:    6        Water:    4        Air:    3        Powers: Thick skin, harder to damage.  Amphibious.

 

Kangaroo Men             These creatures would generally be classified as a type of Satyr.  They have the torso of a human mounted on

                                   the legs and tail of a kangaroo.  Whilst generally peaceful, if roused one should avoid the reach of their legs and

                                    tail.  They are also known to make good bare-knuckle boxers.

                                    Fire:    5        Earth:    4        Water:    3        Air:    3        Powers: Boxing, powerful kick.

 

Lamia                           These serpent women are often confused for Siren's.  They are a type of snake satyr, with the face, arms and

                                    breast of a woman and the rest of the body like a snake.  They are incapable of speech or song, but their

                                    hissing has a hypnotic affect on men.  When their prey comes close enough they will knock them out with their

                                    tales and eat them whole.

                                    Fire:    4        Earth:    3        Water:    4        Air:    4        Powers: Hypnotic hissing, knockout blow.

 

Land Otter People     This is a strange corruption of normal humans into ones who are otter like creatures.  The Land Otter People are

                                    very vicious and territorial, but every so often they will take human form to lure boats close to them, pretending

                                    to be stranded.  Then they overturn the boats and kidnap their crew, feeding them fish and kelp from the

                                    nearby waters, which over time turns them into more Land Otter People.  It is not known if they can reproduce

                                    in any other way.

                                    Fire:    4        Earth:    2        Water:    4        Air:    2        Powers: Take human form.

 

Melusine                       This is a special type of mermaid with two fish tails.  It is not entirely certain if they are a different species or a

                                    mutation of normal mermaids.

                                    Fire:    5        Earth:    3        Water:    4        Air:    3        Powers: Breathe under water.

 

Mermaids                    Mermaids have been known by different names but all have the appearance in common.  A mermaid is a

                                    woman's torso, arms and head on a fish's tail.  They are capable of breathing under water and the air.  It is said

                                    that some mermaids can appear completely human for a while.

                                    Fire:    4        Earth:    3        Water:    4        Air:    3        Powers: Breathe under water, appear human.

N-dam-keno-wet         Sometimes mistaken for a merman, this type of creature is more a melding of fish and man than parts of either

                                  mixed together, though there is a tendency for the upper half to be basically human with a small thin face and

                                  long hair, and the lower half fish.  Strangely their favourite past time is to molest bathing women.

                                   Fire:    4        Earth:    4        Water:    3        Air:    2        Powers: Breathe under water.

 

Nixes                           This race of mer-people may just be a corruption of the general type.  The females seem to consist of those

                                    with a human upper body and a fish tail or a fish upper body and human legs.  The males always appear as

                                    either a man, a large fish or a snake, apparently being able to shift between those forms at will.

            Female            Fire:    4        Earth:    3        Water:    3        Air:    3        Powers: Breathe under water.

            Male               Fire:    4        Earth:    3        Water:    4        Air:    3        Powers: Breathe under water, shapeshift (3 forms)   

 

Satyr                            In general this term refers to a half man, half goat. Usually a bearded man's torso with horns and a goats hind

                                    legs and tail.  However other types of satyr exist such as sheep, horses, cow, wolf.  The scores given below are

                                    for the goat, wolf and cheetah varieties.

Selkie                           The Selkies are not really human, instead they are a type of seal like marine creature.  However the females

                                    shed their skin once a year and go to shore to mate with humans, since this is the only way they can

                                    reproduce.  Male Selkies cannot change shape, but are the hunters of the species.

            Male                Fire:    4        Earth:    3        Water:    4        Air:    2        Powers: None

Tjilpa                            This is the name given to a race of humanoid cats.  There are many different breeds but most have similar

                                    traits.  They are lazy, vain and carry an air of superiority with them.  However when needs be they are

                                    lightning quick and cruel cunning hunters.  Scores are given for 2 types.

            Lion                Fire:    4        Earth:    5        Water:    4        Air:    3        Powers: None

            White Tiger     Fire:    5        Earth:    4        Water:    4        Air:    4        Powers: None

 

Tsi-noo                        Some say that this is not a race of creatures but in fact normal humans with a type of disease or curse. 

                                    However whatever the case they should be avoided.  To all appearances they are normal humans, but cold to

                                    the touch and lacking something in their eyes.  In fact they have hearts made of ice, and don't have souls,

                                    instead feeding on those of others.

                                    Fire:    6        Earth:    7        Water:    2        Air:    3        Powers: Drain victim's soul, immune to pain

 

Wana-games-ak          These river-dwelling creatures look like humans, though their faces are very narrow, appearing almost flat. They

                                    are friendly, and are known to help travellers that fall in the river.

                                    Fire:    3        Earth:    2        Water:    5        Air:    4        Powers: Breathe under water

 

Woodwose                  These are basically humans covered in hair, and with a long mane running down their backs to the floor.  They

                                    have been known to attack unprovoked.

                                    Fire:    4        Earth:    5        Water:    4        Air:    2        Powers: None

 

Zombie                         This is a man who has no soul, but unlike the Tsi-noo they do not feast on others.  Generally they have been

                                    created as a punishment for some crime, and become servants to their maker.  Those who's master is slain tend

                                    to can a measure of intelligence, though with it a desire to consume brains.

                                    Fire:    2        Earth:    4        Water:    2        Air:    2        Powers: Immune to pain
