Malady (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



The personalities of Malady tend to be cruel and sadistic at best. They are masters of acting and may seem to give off the impression of a kind soul. Even if they happen to be Good aligned, they still maintain a sadistic side and take no small pleasure in hurting those who anger them.

Physical Description[edit]

A Malady looks similar to their succubus mothers save for the fact that they lack wings and a tail. However, they do inherit their father's fangs - literally. Otherwise, they seem like a normal human with pale skin, fair hair and a admirable figure. Notably, Malady are ageless and cease to show visible signs of aging after they begin adulthood. Although, some may cease the aging process at an earlier date.


Malady tend to fit into societies quite well due to their succubus heritage. Although, if and when a cleric discovers their undead core, some debate usually ensues which ends in the exile or execution of the Malady.


Usually evil, their law-chaos axis tends to vary.


Malady live nearly anywhere that is heavily populated (usually by humanoid races).


Religion is a rather ambiguous topic with Malady. They are usually servants of the lord of their succubus mother, depending on their connection to their family. They aren't necessarily restricted from other forms of worship otherwise.


In terms of languages, Malady are fluent in Abyssal and Common.


Common names follow the scheme of mal-factors such as Pestilence, Curse, Evil, Destruction, etc.
