Fennihk (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
A humanoid being whose soul has been bonded to that of an animal, Fehniks are strange and mystical beings.
 Physical Description
Standing at around four and a half feet tall, Fehniks are not imposing beings. They are inhumanly thin and frail loooking, with large almond-shaped eyes and delicate features. Females are slightly smaller and thinner than males, but both sexes have short fingers and toes with long hands and feet. Both sexes grow hair only on their heads, though the female has a full head of hair whil they male has a horseshoe ring. Many male Fehniks grow facial hair, though it is entirely optional. The biggest differences between sexes is that males have rows of bony nobs and plates atop their skull, which is why they have less hair. Hair coloring varies, but is usually only a few shades darker or lighter than their skin tone. Their skin is normally a rich, dark brown, but can be tawny or even black. Their eyes can be any shade of blue, though lighter shades are more common.
Fehniks get along fairly well with other races. They are considered something of an oddity, though, as they're quite uncommon outside of their cities.
Fehnik alignments vary quite a bit, but they seem to tend towards Neutral.
Fehniks are given two names through their lifetime. Their first name is given at birth and usually something quite short, being only one or two syllables at most. However, in recent years names common to other races have been gaining in popularity. Examples include Rek (male), Werl (male), Gesa (female), and Fari (female). Their surname is given at around fifteen years of age, when their partner's soul is melded to theirs. The name is always that of their partner's species, followed by either a physical feature of that animal, or a word such as "soul" or "spirit". Thus, examples are Rek Eaglesoul, Werl Bearclaw, Gesa Stagspirit, and Fari Wolftooth.
