Appyri[edit]

Introduction[edit]

Appyri (Pron: ah-pie-ree, singular: Appyre) are evolutionary descendants of vampires. No one knows how they "evolved", but it is said in their tradition that one particular vampire become a living being by becoming a martyr for someone she loved through burning on a stake. Her children have received this living gift, and also the need to feed on heat as opposed to blood, although bovine blood is an occasional treat.

Personality[edit]

Appyri are cunning, curious, and inventive, especially when it comes to precious stones. They are a race that have just come out of hiding and thus have a lot to learn about it. They do this mainly by observation and reading. Some may also go into tinkering.

Physical Description[edit]

Appyri are the same size as normal humans. They have smaller fangs than their evolutionary descendants, and their pale skin can have red to green coloring at the fingers and toes. Their hair can be of any metallic color except silver, and their eyes can be either be green or light blue, although those with tremendous magical aptitude can have yellow eyes.

Relations[edit]

Appyri are wary around other races as those races usually are afraid of their blood-sucking cousins. However, once another race is trusted, Appyri expect the same trust back. They are not that friendly towards lawful people, as they feel that "law" is much different than "true justice".

Alignment[edit]

Appyri are usually Neutral Good or Chaotic Good alignment. One can become Chaotic Evil when he/she loses the ability to absorb heat and thus begins to "devolve" into vampirism.

Lands[edit]

Any environment, but Appyri favor warm climate, as heat is "food" for them.

Religion[edit]

Appyri worshipers of the sun, as the sun is a source of life (heat) to them. Some, however, have little to no relations towards religion as they are too busy with intellectual things.

Language[edit]

Appyri can comprehend many languages depending on who is around them. They obviously know Common, but the most intellectual use very complex words.

Names[edit]

First names come from a language that is used in the area. Last name comes at near-adulthood when an appyre is acknowledged for a great feat.

Racial Traits[edit]

Other Information and Weaknesses[edit]

Appyri are weak against the cold. When hit with a cold-based attack, an appyre must take a DC 16 Fortitude check when hit with this type of attack. Upon failing this check, he/she will take an extra 2d6 damage.

When in a cold environment, an appyre must take a 16 DC Fortitude check each turn. Upon failing this check, he/she will take 1d4 damage.

When an appyre dies in a cold environment, a fire spell must be cast on him/her in order to be revived, treating the damage roll as a healing roll (I.E. a roll for a fire spell with 4d6 damage will heal her for 4d6 health).
