"I have not seen a person that can go toe to toe with a kri... but I also have not seen one that wanted to try."

-Jekua Fallen (Arena Master)

Physical Description

Kri are the embodiment of unbridled strength. Each one stands 10-12 feet tall and weighs 600-900 pounds. Their skin varies from dark gray to almost white, with the females being on the lighter side of the scale and the males shifting more to the darker hues. Their blood is almost translucent, making it seem like they don't bleed but their blood will fade to a grayish red after several hours exposed to air. both male and female kri do not grow hair but males grow short horns around the jaw line.


Very little is know of kri history they have no written or oral traditions and do not seem interested in the matter, the most popular theory is they were made as a warrior/slave race for more advanced or civilized races and either rebelled and escaped or were discarded when a more suitable replacement was found.


Kri are very rare do not live in groups, therefore they do not have much of a society of their own but take from any society the are involved in, though they all seem to be very honour bound and most will dedicate themselves as a warrior to particular groups or individuals.

Kri Names

Kri take their names from the society in which they were raised.
