Half-Gnome Wereshark (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Half-Gnome Wereshark are exactly what they sound like. A Wereshark with a Red gnome hat.
The curse of Wereshark is permanent, because it is intrinsic in their race cause mutations
Thousands of years ago, the city of Corriaux (now Finderplain),a city inhabited by Sorcerers and Necromancer Gnome, was invaded and destroyed by Golem commanded by Drow. The gnomes who lived there were forced to migrate to another place. They chose a far-off swamp, inhabited by ultra-dimensional monsters. Although it was inhabited by these scary monsters, the environment was calm and welcoming. But the swamp was controlled by an obscure magician named Hastur who made experiments on them, crossing their DNA with Weresharks DNA. The result was something horrible and frighteningly strong. Hastur was killed and eaten by the Half-Gnome Wereshark. The Half-Gnome Wereshark could now fight the monsters that inhabited that swamp, creating a society now closed and forgotten by everyone. Over the years their strength has dropped a lot.
Half-Gnome Wereshark live in tribal villages and are not usually very open with other races. When they reach adulthood they must choose a tattoo to represent in wich Order they want to belong: there are six Orders that are distinguished by the activities they do; joining an Order makes sure that every Half-Gnome Wereshark is trained to be useful in the village. The size of the gnome hat indicates how important is a Half-Gnome Wereshark in their society.
