Half-Minotaur (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Half-Minotaurs are usually hot-headed and stubborn. They're mistrustful people in general, typically because they have had troubled childhoods and/or have been chased out of towns and scorned by people for their appearance/race. Due to this they tend to be wanderers of sorts and live in the wilderness.

Physical Description[edit]

Half-Minotaurs resemble humans for the majority and as such are medium creatures. The average male is around 6'6" tall and the average female is around 6'1" tall. The average male weighs at least 230 lb., whereas the average female weighs at least 180 lb. Most of the time their skin color matches their human parent, but Half-Minotaurs can also have tan, red, brown, white, gray, and black skin colors. Half-Minotaurs can have most feasible eye colors, though red and violet are very rare. Hair colors tend to be brown, black, white, gray, and red, though red is a rare for them. Just about all Half-Minotaurs have horns, even the females. When generating a Half-Minotaur, if you feel the need, roll a percentile die. 1% have no horns. Some Half-Minotaurs have hooves, but this is an uncommon trait, about a 10% chance. Half-Minotaurs have about a 40% chance to have a tail. Most Half-Minotaurs tend to grow more hair than humans and in more places. It's about a 5% chance for a Half-Minotaur to grow hair over their entire body.


Half-Minotaurs are disliked by most races.


Though most often chaotic neutral, Half-Minotaurs can be any alignment.


Half-Minotaurs feel most comfortable living in plains, large grassy fields, barrens, open forests (not thickly clustered forests), dungeons, mazes and caves.


Half-Minotaurs tend to revere the gods of nature, since they feel a close relationship with all things natural, and a special respect for wildlife. However, their parent´s religion may influence their overall view of life. It is unusual, but not unheard of, for Half-Minotaurs to worship a racial deity, since they will often be but a half-breed in the eyes of proud minotaur gods, or an aberration in the eyes of other gods. This may cause a great hatred in Half-Minotaurs towards certain excluding churches. A hatred neutral evil gods will not hesitate to use for their own dark purposes, manipulating this race.


Half-Minotaurs tend to pick up Common some way or another. They can learn other languages spoken in the region they live in.


Half-Minotaurs are usually named by their mothers if not orphaned. If the Half-Minotaur is orphaned and not adopted, it goes nameless until it learns a language and names itself something that it identifies with in the language they learn. Names can differ based on what's common in the region they live in.
