Grauel Kemono (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Standing over 7 feet tall on paw like feet Grauel Kemono are covered in short dark fur and thorn like vines grow from their back, which they can use as tentacles,and their skull is revealed, usually a dog or other carnivorous creature some which grow antlers or horns, with glowing and unblinking red eyes in the sockets of the skull.
Living in the Feywilds lives an old and unusual creature, The Unwanted One, as powerful as an Archfey, bleak and dreadful as a Shade monster from the Shadowfell, and as curious as a mortal child. All that is known about this creature is that he was born around the time when the borders between the Material Plan, Feywilds and the Shadowfell where extremely thin, so thin in fact you could walk through all three walking about a hundred yards in certain places, and from this period of time he was born. Due to his appearance and nature he earned the name The Unwanted One, he is considered to vibrant and creative in the Shadowfell, to bleak and corrupted to be accepted by the Fey courts including the Unseelie Courts, and a monstrosity in the Material Plane. As the borders between these realms thickened the ability to travel between these realms diminished and so The Unwanted One began to make his home in the Feywild secluded from any unwanted and even wanted guests from bothering him. So began a long and lonely time of thinking, so he decided to create a race as lonely and unwanted as himself. He kidnapped a human girl from the Material Plane to his home causing her to be soaked in the Fey magic of the Feywild and corrupted her soul with a shade from the Shadowfell and finally impregnated her, after nine months later four monstrous children were born, their mother died at childbirth, taking after their father's appearance and monstrosity, they ate their mothers remains. He sent two of his children to Shadowfell, one to the Material Plane and kept one with him.
There are three societies of the Grauel Kemono one In the Feywilds, one in Shadowfell and one in the Material Plane. These creatures have no understanding of emotions of others or their own. They are awfully curious and are prone to being deceived all too often. Their population has spread a considerable amount through all three realms due to with whatever humanoid they breed with will always produce a Grauel Kemono. When first born they are capable of walking in a hour after birth but are considered wild and feral, attacking everything that isn’t it’s parents, it may even run away and not be seen again for some time. After ten to fifteen years they immediately are able to read and write Sylvan and whatever their other parents language is. There is one thing that all Grauel Kemono debate with each other, and that is the feeding of other intelligent races, some only eat those that already dead, others like to fatten up their meals before eating, and while others don’t eat intelligent races at all.
