Naku (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Nakus are nomadic by nature, and grow uncomfortable with remaining in the same area for very long. Their population is divided into several tribes, each headed by a chief and his shamans. Nakus are bound by a strict honor code, that forbids the questioning of the workings of nature.
 Physical Description
Nakus are typically thin and agile, and a thin layer of fur covers their entire form. This combines with their pointed ears and slitted eyes give them an almost feline appearance. They also possess sharp claws and teeth. Their fur typically ranges from orange to green to black, although various other colors do occur.
Naku prefer the open plains to any other form of land. They are uncomfortably claustrophobic in dense forests, and detest being underground.
Most Nakus primarily worship Amelatha, as well as the one-eyed god Gruumsh in times of war.
Nakus speak Goblin amongst themselves, and most can also speak Common when dealing with other races.
Naku names are typically a compound of two words, with adjectives followed by animals (i.e. Swifthawk, Strongbull) among the most common.
