Jakello (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
The Jakello race are an alien people of tree dwellers who reside in dense forest and jungles where they build large tree house dens and live in tribes. These tribes are split into caste and each member does their best to provide for the whole group of Jakeelo called a Trimoor. The Fimir are warriors who stand at prominence with their leadership and fierce skill while the other worker caste or Trimir work various jobs such as labor or food gathering. These people from a far-off plane are close or possibly descended from the fey as seen to their close ties to nature, but slowly broke off to their current tribal state. While somewhat primitive in design the Jakello are just as knowledgeable and wise as the standard human. The most notable feature of them are their four arms and small stature made for climbing and navigating the dense tree lines with ease. While most of them are not trained to use all four arms the more veteran Fimir have learns to use all four arms in combat making them quite deadly despite their small size. While not usual some do venture out either to discover more or are cast out for breaking tribal code
The Jakello while resembling a human in design are shorter than average, The tallest being 4 feet(121 cm) and the shortest being 3’5 feet (107 cm). They look Animalistic with feline animal heads and a thin coat of fur on their skin. They all have four arms and are relatively nimble for their size and are born with at first small but pronounced cat features excluding a tail. They have a life span of 80 and reach adulthood at age 16, Since their small frame the average weight is 100 to 120 lbs. The fur color can be black, ginger, or tan and brown and eye colors are varied greatly. They do have normal human hands and feet though despite their mostly cat like appearance
The Jakello people before they became tribes were a wild group of loosely collected hunter gatherers who used their ties to nature to advance and survive the wilds. This was until they became more numerous and intelligent learning from their passed down techniques. Now they live in trees to better avoid danger and take advantage of their natural physiology. The most notable tribes and history have yet to be fully understood due to the scarce amount of Jakello seen outside the tribes but they are seen to value knowledge, skill, and respect for members of their clans. The main religion is dedicated to “The Great Shavmir”, a deity based on survival and wander lust
The Jakello are expressive and curious beings who value loyalty as taught by their ancestors of their people. They follow those who exude courage and skill in the merit based society and don't take to needless expenses kindly, unless convinced otherwise. Since they are still very traditional they are survivalist at heart and while neutral they can be aggressive when provoked They usually live in wooded areas sometimes near rivers. They don't like industrial areas and machines viewing them as threats to nature as they prefer living life through sustainability and balance with nature. They do, however, have respect for warriors or leaders with great skill thus why warriors hold key positions along with mage priest or shamans called Nimir They have a naturally talkative if somewhat nosey nature to the dismay of many who meet them. Sharing stories and achievements impresses them the most, as they can be intrigued and eager to learn more from new friends or tribe members and take this back with them to their homes
