Cave Rainid (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Cave rainids are wise and industrious, and are often the most welcoming and kind of all the peoples in their ecosystems, which tend to be the unforgiving troglododytic sort. They are strict and stern, but fair and judicious. Many of them ascribe various myths to the world outside of the caves they call home, seeing them as a strange realm, where the ceiling changes constantly in various cycles of light and darkness.
Cave rainids are about six feet tall, and are lean and tend to have a portly build, even their warriors. Their faces are featureless aside from a few holes for a mouth, nostrils and ears, but with no lips, external ears or nose. The whiter races generally live in aquatic caves and the yellower races in air-breathing caves
Cave rainids are typically allied with the more civilized cave-dwelling races, most commonly exiled drow and myconids who they work to rehabilitate in the case of the former and in the latter case, they trade knowledge with freely. They are usually hostile to the more chaotic and evil denizens of the dark. They do get along decently well with dwarves, elves and gnomes, occassionally trading with them and offering safe haven and safe passage to them if needed.
