Dragonblood Outcasts (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
A race that follows the dragons array of colours.
Tall well-built humans with skin and eyes the colour of their draconic ancestors skin.
Dragonblood Outcasts are the descendants of a mixing of Dragons and Humans. Through their species' relatively short existence, they have faced severe persecution at the hands of ignorant humans. Because of this, they are very good at fighting, and have made a career in mercenary work.
Dragonblood Outcasts value honor and strength above all else. They live in jaded societies in which the only way to exist is to be strong. They have been known to execute the weak and crippled because the weak "slow them down". Their society most resembles the society of Goliaths, with the addition that war and blood are the only ways to gain honor. Their society is divided into certain castes:
Arcane. Arcane are the strongest spellcasters of the clan. They serve as elites in war, often going to war with the Warriors, or stay at home as guardians or researchers.
Warrior. These Outcasts bear draconic weapons. They serve as the Soldiers who go away to war.
Protector. Protectors are charged with the defense of the clan while the warriors are away. To fail protecting clanmates means death.
Savior. Saviors are the healers of the clan. They serve as healers in the ranks or at home. If someone dies under their charge it is the ultimate dishonor.
Survivor. Survivors are the Rangers of the clan, gathering herbs for medicine and serving as sentries and scouts. To let their guard down is to invite ruin.
The Dragonblood Outcasts usually use human names as those are passed most frequently down the line.
