Azara (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Azara are tall, strong, anthropomorphic creatures that lie in between wolves and cats.
|Male and female Azara comparison, with a human to scale.|
The azaras are tall, strong creatures, generally standing around 7'0" in height. They are covered in thick fur that varies in color without any apparent basis for its variation. The azara have sharp teeth, semi-retractable claws and pointed ears on the tops of their canine-like heads. They also have tails, usually thick like that of a wolf, but occasionally having leaner and thinner feline tails. Male azaras have a mane, while female azaras have no such trait. Both sexes have two pairs of breasts, which are more noticeable in females than males.
The azara are an old race, with origins dating back millennia. Not much is known of the azara from this time as humans didn't see fit to document them. It is a general belief the azara were the most populous beings once, living alongside humans on their world. They were thought to be no more than beasts because they saw little use of displaying their true sentience. Over time, however, the azaras gained confidence. With it, came power. They came upon the humans and took them by surprise. After a series of wars, they were the dominant race of their continent Athar, subjugating the local humans. It is believed the azara evolved from an ancient race of quadrupeds.
Society for the azaras is very-well defined. The queen/king of the azara is the leader of the army. They also operate in a council that makes decisions and governs the laws, similar to a human parliamentary monarchy. To azaras, females are highly valued for their fertility and motherly nature, which is why queens are allowed to rule alone when the occasion arises. Humans are the lowest rungs of society, with the azara treating them as little more than cattle. However, humans still have rights, though many of them are enslaved to the azaras.
Azara names are made of words in the Azaran language. Usually, these names describe them.
Male: Irrash (Unique Eyes), Urrb’esh (Born in Summer), M’ishirr (Yellow Eyes)
Female: Ishk’af (Crystal), Ishā (Place of Stones), R'oshirr (Red Eyes)
