Durvroes (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Durvros are heartless, cruel humans who made a pact with Mephistopheles to give them power over fire. They tend to live in Volcanic areas, and have a nation of their own, Vokhiil.There are only male Durvros. Human women also inhabit Vokhiil, and these women are just as cruel as the Durvros themselves. They would leave a child that is no of Vokhiil on the streets to die, they would lock their doors to visitors or wanderers, and they would kill anyone who had wronged them, even if they had done a minor offense. However, they are tough but loving to their own. For some reason, children of a Durvros is a Durvros if male, and a human if female.
Powerfully built, Durvros stand at around 6'5. They have greyish caucasian skin, but can be anything from pale to pure grey. Vokhiil was showered with riches, allowing the Durvros to build and equip a powerful army. Most Durvros are soldiers, in menacing black plates of armor. They train with Hand-and-half swords, and carry large metal shields with a erupting volcanoe, the symbol of Vokhiil, etched upon it. Durvros weigh around 300 pounds.
Vokhiil are usually silent, preferring to listen instead. They do not feel sympathy exept for the most haert-wrenching stories, or stories in which similar occurences happened to them. They laugh at enemies in pain, giving them a cruel and heartless look. They have terrible relations with those of good alignments, and are known to challenge a boasting Paladin to a fight to the death. Neutral alignments they simply understand the best and deal with most. Evil alignments they deal with as well. They take offense very easily, but do not show it until a line has been crossed, which at that point they crush their enemy.
