ANCERIOUS BIOLOGY FORM:
Krovaedian Biological Briefing
Krovaedians possess vaguely saurian characteristics, resembling in some ways a sapient theropod. They stand on average about eight feet tall on two powerful digitigrade legs with four flexible, talon-tipped toes. Their waists are narrow, and flare out into wide hips and shoulders below and above. They possess two sets of pectoral muscles and large, muscular arms terminating in three fingers and a thumb.
Their heads are the characteristic that is less archetypal of a saurian species. The skull sweeps back in a crest of bone that extends a foot or so behind the individual. From this crest extend multiple tendrils that are often tied off in braids or dreadlocks. Their jaws are powerful, comprised of an upper and lower jaw and two mandibles that fold over them; the evolutionary purpose for these is unknown. Krovaedians posses four eyes: two primary eyes with vertical pupils and a pair of secondary eyes without pupils that see in a different spectrum.
A Krovaedian's entire body is covered in a thick, leathery skin. Some places, such as the face, crest, and shoulders are supplemented by bony plates as a form of natural armor. Skin tones range from tan to ebony to albino white.
Krovaedians possess an extremely potent arsenal of psionic abilities, ranging from telepathy to telekinesis to ESP. These abilities are granted by the Khrysarae material that occurs naturally in their brain and nervous system. This material is exceedingly conductive, to the point that if configured in the correct manner it can literally harness the ambient energy of the cosmos into a usable form. As a result, Krovaedians are able to harness the power of their brains, which are highly complex, and project it into the physical world. Adding to this psionic system is the tendrils located on their head, which detect microchanges in ambient electrical fields. With enough practice and discipline, a Krovaedian can use this natural system in ways that defy conventional explanations, including the summoning and discharge of massive amounts of energy in a burst comparable to a lightning strike.
Extreme Biological adaptations:
* Tough skin and bony armor (does not offer anywhere near enough protection to forego battle armor)
* Psionic nervous system
* Powerful legs allow for considerable speed and jumping abilities
* Khrysarae-coated nervous system
* Psionic tendrils
* Second set of eyes
Krovaedians are intelligent and capable of the same range of compassion and sophistication as other sapient races. However, the demands of their religion spurn them on a warlike path, and they are thus often seen as ruthless, bloodthirsty barbarians. This is an unfair observation, as they are not only bound by a strict honor code when conducting war, but also make very caring and loving spouses and parents.
It has been noted that Krovaedians tend to be xenophobic, or at the very least believe themselves to be above other races. They are prone to extreme self-sufficiency that has often proven to be unwise, such as their routine of denying alliances in favor of subjugation.
Above all, Krovaedians possess a distinct and vehement hatred for humans that has yet to be explained....
