Dedede Spawn (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Dedede Spawn are large-bellied, loud-beaked avian humanoids with deep blue skin and short, penguin-like legs. A Dedede Spawn comes into being out of thin air, fully formed and ready to carve a niche for itself out of the local territory.

The origins of this race can be traced back to the Great King Dedede, who somehow managed to reproduce alone and spawn this proud, stupid, and powerful race of creatures. Some speculate that he either stole from or struck a deal with the demigod Raxivort. Regardless, after King Dedede suffered some sort of defeat (or betrayal), his spawns scattered all across the lands and took up residence wherever they landed. Over time, they spread further across the world, much to the dismay of everyone else. Today they can commonly be seen terrorizing small farming towns.
Dedede Spawn are notoriously proud and assertive like their father. In today's society, they look for small settlements to assert themselves over, or to rule as their own tiny kingdom as their infamous father once did long ago in the Dream Land territories. Some are very zealous about this, but others take a more mellow attitude and see it as a hobby.
Dedede Spawn Names
Dedede Spawn often simply call themselves Dedede, being rare enough that there's generally little point in differentiating between them by name. In the event that two meet, they might continue to call themselves and each other by their predecessor's name, refer to one another only by insults, or refer to each other by their place of origin. A third party is likely to adopt the latter approach.
