Lizard/Wolf Geist (template)[edit]

(Sorry this is not in template form but I don't know how to do that)


Creatures of rage. That is their nickname. Easy to anger, these creatures are always looking for their next opponent. Strong, fast and hearty Wolf Geist should not be taken lightly. Even though in their primary races form (elf, human, dwarf, ect.) they still keep half there bonuses from their Geist form. Even thought they are mean they usually can be befriended by someone of the opposite sex. Then they will protect that person until death.. Lizard Geist though are a little more tame than their wolf brethren. They still have their instinct to fight but they can control it a little better. Which means they are able to conceal their Geist indignities allowing them to do more around normal people. Any Geist almost never attacks unless it means to kill. Geist also don't have mouths, but they can talk telepathically.

Physical Description[edit]

Armor colors: black, silver, gold

Eye colors: red, yellow, blue, green, black, white, and silver

Hair colors: silver, black, white, red, navy

Wolf: Between 7'-7'8" have dark blue skin, and armor like plating over their: shoulders, head, pecks, top of hands going up to the elbow, and shins. Men are a bit bigger and have more armor than females, but the females look better and are faster. Wolf Geist have sharp claws which if you are hit by you start to transform into a wolf Geist.

Lizard: between 6'10"-7'4" have darn green skin and armor like plating over their heads, shoulder. As with wolf Geist males are bigger and their armor covers more, but the females are faster and better looking. Lizard Geist also have sharp claws but also have a strong tail to bash things, same as a wolf Geist if you are hit by a lizard Geist claws you start to turn into one.

When you are turned it happens in stages: first your eyes change (usually blue, yellow, green, or red), then your hair changes (silver, black, or white if wolf, you go bald if lizard), then you grow your claws and tail, then finally your body shifts into Geist form. After the first time you can go to any of the stages you want; strate to Geist form, change of eye color, or up to claws and tail your chose. But when you shift to a middle stage you will get all that comes before it: want claws and a tail well you will also get a new eye and hair color.

Geist after adulthood don't change in appearance even in their base form until venerable age. But they still do get the same penalties when reaching middle and old age.


Are mainly solitary creatures but can be befriended by up to 3 people and they will protect them fiercely.


Usually chaotic neutral, but depending on the alignment of their pack mates they can be anything(but lawful)


anywhere, even planes


Geist aren't religious.


Whatever base race is plus common.


Based on base race.
