Shur'Talon, Shieldbound (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
The Shieldbound Shur'Talon are different from the other Shur'Talon. They are raised from a young age to be stoic, and guard the holy places of Liorgon with reverence.
Shur'Talon average around about 5'11", weighing about 170 lb. They all have Storm-Gray eyes, which is one of the most common ways to tell them apart from Elves, aside from their height. Skin color can vary, though mainly they are pale, with a slight tinge of gray/metallic blue sometimes.
Shur'Talon have no predispositions towards any races, but fit in most around Elves and Humans.
Any, though they tend towards Lawful.
The Shur'Talon have lands in a pocket dimension, the domain of Liorgon.
Shur'Talon revere Liorgon, and Liorgon only. He is their patron deity, and they are his messengers.
Lior is the language derived from a cult code, springing from the cult which was the origins of the Shur'Talon. Over the ages since the following was uplifted, it has developed into an actual language, named after their god, Liorgon.
Shur'Talon are named by their parents, in a ritual shortly after birth devoting the Shur'Talon to Liorgon.
