Physical Description[edit]

Half kobolds are the offspring of humans and kobolds. Their physical appearance is similar to kobolds but have more human features than reptilian and are usually taller and stronger than regular kobolds. Though most would simply think them a larger variety of kobold than being only half. Standing usually a foot taller their size can vary dependent on their parents lineage.


Half kobolds are almost never noticed because of their appearance and demeanor. They are taller than regular kobolds and slightly less reptile looking but otherwise would be taken as a bit larger kobold, even thought of as a possible leader or brute by most.


Half kobolds are treated regularly or even better within kobold society compared to other half breeds of other races. Their larger size and increased strength ensure that half kobolds are used to serve their community. They make excellent workers, fighters or even possibly magic wielders. Given their parentage they can grasp more advanced teachings and ideals than regular kobolds allowing them to help improve the clan they are within.
