|“||The first Lath that were created on Eberron were actually fused mortals with Rathkash. The King Rathkash went on a rampage of destruction when he arrived on Eberron. He was very huge, not just some normal sized Lath. There were a group of legendary adventurers, who figured they could stop the King easily. It was harder than they thought, because their physical attacks were not doing anything, not even their cold spells did much. They decided to cast a death spell on it. A very powerful death spell that consumed the wizard in the process. But it reduced the Lath to two seperate individuals. Fearing that they would be destroyed, they pleaded with the adventurers that they couldn't do anything against the King Lath's command. They offered to help the adventurers by fusing with two of them, which wouldn't allow them to control the adventurers. The adventurers agreed to this, because there was a cleric that could destroy the Rathkash if they tried to control the two adventurers. The Rathkash fused, and the first Lath were created.||”|

Playing a Lath
Lath are pyro-maniacs, probably because they're fiery themselves. Their eyes are actually red glowing embers. They're always careful not to set stuff on fire, so they turn down their heat, so as not to burn anything.
Lath Characteristics: pyro-maniacs, red eyes, careful with their fire.
