You see a large deep green scaled lizard man with a large tail a Blue Ridge running from the top of its head to the tip of its tail. There also seams to be a lot of heat coming off its body the odd smell of brimstone in the air.
Creatures of fire and hate, the Ses’Rin look like a cross between a demon and a lizardman. They are strictly carnivorous creatures and seem to prefer elven and human flesh above everything else.
Ses’Rin are a recent addition, having just been released from an eon long stasis in the recently discovered underground complex of Rashen in the mournland. Their stasis was interrupted when a group of adventurers broke the seals of their chamber in the lower reaches of the complex.
None are left from the original group but subsequent expeditions have uncovered disturbing facts about the creatures and the complex itself. The lower reaches bear the mark of Illithid construction and the remnants of their chamber seals showed that they where made using psionics and not magic. If the translation of the Mindflayer’s scriptures is correct, the complex must have been an outpost of the ancient Daelkyr invasion and the Ses’Rin were bred to serve as elite troops or enforcers of their rule.
It seems that they were created from an extinct race of lizardmen with psionic potential and were subsequently crossbred with fire salamanders. How such a union was possible remains a mystery. It is certain that they proved to be uncontrollable and the few that the Daelkyr did managed to employ, they did so with the aid of psionic headgear that made them susceptible to the domination powers of there mindflayer servants.
The Ses’Rin will try to power up using all of its powers before it will go into for a strike. They hope to kill one of their targets in one hit if they can. They are in a sense a killing machine that will stop at nothing until every thing they want to kill is killed.
Heat (Ex): A ses’rin generates so much heat that its mere touch deal additional fire damage. Ses’rin’s metallic weapons also conduct this heat.
