Hominapium (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
"Hey, that's kinda cute, don't you think?" "Hell no, that's a BEE!"
Insectoids in the form of bees, whether it be bumble or killer, these creatures are roughly the size of a human, either a little bigger or smaller depending on the subrace. The bipedal form of the creature has four arms, and the quadrupedal aberration of it has two arms. They have an exoskeleton, just as bees do and generally resemble bees in every way, save for the odd human gene here and there. The quadrupedal aberration's head resembles a bee, whereas the bipedal creature's head resembles a human.
Good old Mordenkainen decided that having magical bees would be cool, unfortunately his first rendition of the spell only magically enlarged the bees, but they were still under the control of the queen. Mordy is still working on the final version of the spell. But regardless, a few bards found these bees and took control of them... They're bards, you know what comes next. That spawned some more demihumans, and somehow, this happened multiple times. At least four different races were spawned via this method.
Hominapii live in close knit societies, such as a pure hive, which includes a queen and a swarm of hominapii. Others, outcasts, or Impureborn are still just as close knit as pureborn, but they are loyal to their friends, to a fault, or to their creator/owner.
Most Hominapii share names of the races who "own" them or made them, but the pureborn have names, some examples of pureborn names are listed.
