Perentie

Perentie

The Perentie are a race of lizard men that evolved in the great Heisha desert at the heart of the Roaravan Wastes. After the disaster at the end of the age of the time of the ancients, Teluria had become a different place. The normally dominant races retreated into small enclaves with the goal of surviving. This left many areas free of their influence and nature went to work. Without interference, the Perentie were able to evolve and control large mountain areas. Their society is a society of strict structure and adherence to the rule of law. This has resulted in their society developing a caste system as well as a strong concept of personal, family and societal honor.

There are two castes of Perentie that can be identified by the color of their scales. The Akai have a reddish tint to their scales and are the larger and physically more powerful. The Hairo have a grayish tint to their scales and while slightly smaller they are more nimble.

The Akai have developed into fierce warriors that follow a strict code of honor. The ruler of the Perentie, the Shogun, is always drawn from the Akai, while his chief advisor is drawn from the Hairo. They are serious and business like in their dealings with others. They will take any slight as an affront to their honor and will demand immediate redress. They will pass a slight down from generation to generation until it is avenged.

The Hairo have developed into assassins and spies. They work behind the scenes for the good of the empire. They gather information on the Perntie’s enemies and remove threats when a quiet hand is required. They are Perentie most likely to be encountered outside of the desert.
