Physical Description[edit]

Battle Born are similar to any Medium sized race (creator's choice), they are a darker skin race and appear heavily scarred, even if they have never been injure, they like to heavily Pierce there bodies, and support a wild look in their eyes, like a man in the thick of battle. The scars on their bodies do not appear to hamper them in any way.


War Born are formed from the chaos and destruction of the battlefield. They care only for war. War Born are natural warriors and are known for surviving wounds that bring down human allies. Some war born are reported as being struck down only to rise and continue to fight while, as the reports say, "ignoring wound through almost pure rage and willpower until not even willpower can keep their hearts beating." War Born are known for slaughtering small armies almost single-highhandedly. Despite sounding like berserkers, many war born are expert tacticians and generals, laying down tactics and controlling the battle with but a few words.
