The Trolain got their prehensile tail from assassin vines and cat type creatures during the experiments.
The Trolain are descended from what at first were magical experiments on trolls and the mixing of other animals. These humanoids are the results. The Trolain stand between 5 ½ to 7 feet in height and usually weigh, when full grown, between 250 and 400 pounds. Unlike their Troll ancestors, they are not a truly gruesome race. While they did get some features from them, they are really a race unto their own.
After the experiments went awry, the results congregated and bred themselves into further existence. Other than being as tall and heavy as they are, the Trolain have a prehensile tail half the length of their own height (which comes from the assassin vines used during the experiments) and hardened claw like nails, reminiscent of some of their ancestors, as are the scales they gain as they grow older. These scales are a means of telling ones age, given enough experience with the creatures.
Because of the way these creatures were "born", they have an extremely long life lasting anywhere from 800 to 1000 years in length. While this race is not unknown to most regions, they don’t normally live in towns and cities like most humanoids, for they aren’t known for what they really are. Most seem to take them as Trolls or some other nightmarish monster. The Trolain normally live on their own, with a mate or spouse, and their family group. They generally don’t get much larger in groups than 8-10 people at one time. At this point the younger members of the group break off to form their own family. In a sense, though, these members are still part of the group, only separated by distance and relations. Several families will sometime congregate to one area and form a sort of “community” which spans the length of a several miles.
