Vurminee (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
|A "race's compendium" race created by|
 Physical Description
The vurminee have clearly rodent heads, with only a slight facial variation due to the enlarged brain case. They have small, nimble hands, short tails, and a coating of fur but are otherwise humanoid in appearance.
Vurminee are taught as young that the purpose of life is to advance in power and wealth through a combination of legal and illicit activities, although many exceptions reject these teachings. Vurminee tend to work in lesser positions amongst organized crime such as gangs and drug rings. They generally play second fiddle in a subordinate place due to their lack of ambition and leadership ability.
