Yousts (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Yousts are a terribly destructive people. They live to hunt those creatures that "plauge" their jungle. Youst Enjoy ripping apart humanoids that live in the jungle, especially Jungle elves. They are often harsh in their speech pattern and rarely stop to talk to any one. They however never attack their own kind.
 Physical Description
Youst stand on all fours at about 5ft tall. on two legs they are about 9ft tall. They appear as large bears upon first site however one would notice that rather than fur they have thick leaves and thorny vines. their mouths are filled with terrible looking razor sharp thorn teeth. their eyes are just sunken in pits. They can live to be about 5000years old but most die within 300 years.
It is rare that this race would ever become friendly to any one. Youst are grown in large seeds (which resemble Eggs). Even when grown by others this vile race has gone evil. They often immediately attack any non youst. They are never found out of the jungle.
