Wee'diox (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Wee'diox have a passion for knowledge surpasses even aboleths and mind flayers, and therefore are very intelligent.
Wee'diox are always contemplative, but they are rarely cold-hearted. Their passion for knowledge surpasses even that of aboleths and illithids, and they therefore they make excellent inventors. The wee'diox despise Aboleths with a passion, and, if they get the chance, go out of their way to kill every single individual in an Aboleth community. In fact, wee'diox get along with non-aberrations well, and are especially fond of Inevitables, who are in turn very friendly with the wee'diox. Because they hate the cold, wee'diox live in warm forests, though they also dislike extremely bright light. The language of the wee'diox is Koourish, a language named after their deity, Grond Koour, the deity of the endless pursuit of knowledge. Wee'diox children, who are extremely intelligent from birth, pick their own names. Wee'diox, due to their caring nature, are typically lawful neutral, but sometimes become lawful good. There has yet to be recorded a chaotic or evil wee'diox.
 Physical Description
A wee'diox is typically about as tall as a tallfellow, and has a muscular relatively humanoid body, except for the mane of quills that run from it's head down to about mid-back and 2 pairs of small fangs where it's canine teeth would be. The weight of a wee'diox ranges from 70-105 pounds; the reason for it's weight that is abnormal for it's size is because of it quills and muscle mass.
