Ajern (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
They are energetic and friendly, but also easily upset. Furthermore, they have a mild malicious streak and revel in destruction.
Mortifins have a first name, a family name (which can comes from mother or father, whichever parent proposed to the other) and a name for their clan. Most names are a degenerated mixture of draconic and common. Here are some sample clans and mortifin names.
This tribe is housed at an intricate rock formation at the center of the wasteland, seeks honor and entertainment by taking various violent mortal risks. They are a combination agrarian society and big-game hunters, using every party of the creature they kill. They greet one another by drawing their finger across their throats and smile as a threat. Their coming of age ritual involves taking a test of arcane and cultural knowledge administered by a group of undead mystics. Vaeriloci have little notion of sentimentality with remains. The lead mystic will attempt a speak with dead spell if their is any important information they need from the deceased, the fat from the body is made into ceremonial candles at least one of which is burned with a breif list of the person's life and character. After that, the remains are animated and given to guard the firstborn child. Childless Vaeriloci have their bones animated in service of the group.

The bonzire make their home in a lush jungle and revel in the smell and sight of living things. Their diet is entirely vegetarian, a way that may have arisin from their love of living things or their belief that corpses are labor, not food. Undead minions defend the villaige against the large amount of poisonous creatures that dwell in the dense tropics, giant spiders, dire snakes, and violet fungi being a scant sampling thereof. Every villaiger old enough to handle bottles carries two antitoxins with them at all times, often more. They frequently employ the poisons of such creatures in their weapons, and use contact poisons to coat the teeth of their undead. Because the hot climate has a destructive and unpleasant effect on rotting flesh, they use alchemical and herbal mixtures to dry and preserve the flesh, giving it a dark green tinge and a faint citrus aroma. They are always lead by a male and female pair, one a druid, the other a necromancer (refered to as the bayshrood and levzix respectively), and almost by unspoken tradition these two are opposed on any issue you care to think of. The levzix provides curatives for injuries that do not need immediate healing and breaks curses, while the main function of the bayshrood is to deal with recurring or direct threats to the tribe and heal in the middle of battles or vital cases. How this diametrically opposed pair manages to profitably guide a community is unknown.
