Half Rai
halfrai.jpg

Physical Description: Half-Rai look very much like their rai parents with the execption of being much smaller in size. Depending on the non-rai parent, some may have elven ears or slightly dim glowing eyes like their vada parents. Half-Rai have the horns like their rai parents though sometimes they are much smaller.

Society: Half-Rai have no society of their own, but they usually adapt easier to the society of their non-rai parent with most having a difficult time keeping up with the tasks and chores of their rai kin within the tribes and clans. Regardless of bloodline, they are seen, and stereotyped, no different than their rai parents making it, sometimes, difficult to live in more civilized societies. The less tribal Rai societies, within communes and established cities, see them as equals, and they tend to mentor them in the ways of fighting and, in some cases, the use of divine magics; whereas, the more feral and aggressive tribes may see them as too small and weak to even bother with. Half-Rai born in Rithia tend to usually be loners due to the deep hatred rithians have for rai, and Rai see them as simply rithian blooded.

Relations: Half-Rai are tolerated nearly everywhere, but being accepted in the elven and vadalani cities and villages is another story altogether. Vada admire their tenacity, but they cringe at their origins while humans regard them as no different than a half-orc. Rai tolerate them, but they see them as weaker cousins.

Alignment and Religion: Half-Rai vary in alignment, often according to subrace. Those with elf blood are generally good aligned while those with human blood travel the middle of the road - preferring more neutral paths. Those with vada blood gravitate towards lawful thinking, and those influenced by their Rai tribes enjoy more chaotic endeavors.

Adventurers: A Half-Rai's belief in their own talents drives them to try great deeds, for good or ill. It's very rare for a half-rai to be satisfied just being a cobbler or a farmer, but some of them have been known to become scholars, and, in some communities, either tribe leaders or chiefs of the villages. Most half-rai are driven to become martial classes such as brawler and fighter where the more tribal ones become barbarians. Those of vada origins usually become vanguards so they can satisfied their need for combat and spell casting.
