Mobian, Variant (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
A pair of thieves are hiding in the woods, dividing their plunder. Suddenly, a gust of wind forms around them as a creature swoops past them, grabbing the bag of money. As the bandits looks behind them, they see an anthropomorphic animal standing on a thick tree branch with their stolen goods. “You’re too slow!” the mobian taunts with a shaking index finger, jumping from the tree and blasting away at incredible speed.
Mobians are various anthropomorphic animals, but most of them resemble small halflings mixed with animal features. The colors of their fur, feathers, or scales are bright in hue. Oddly enough, mobians are almost never seen without shoes and gloves.
The mobians originate from the planet of Mobius, a world similar to Earth. On this planet there were 7 magical emeralds that could manipulate time and space and give one immense power. This space and/or time manipulation was referred to as Chaos Control by most, and it is this that caused a tragic event, sending all mobians to different locations in the universe, as well as different times. Some mobians were lucky enough to find each other and gathered around to try to create a society. Others still stray in their newfound worlds, lost.
Mobians, like humans, have a well-developed society. On their home planet, they are an advanced civilization with many technological advancements, and have their own set of various traditions. Mobians tend to act and think like humans do and are about the same intelligence wise. On their home planet, humans can also be found, which tend to differentiate between living in peace or going against the mobian species. One thing that almost all mobian societies have in common, is the intense care and respect for nature, often being against those that harm it for selfish deeds.
Mobians are regularly named most of the time, but sometimes their first name derives from their specific abilities. For example, a mobian with multiple tails will have the first name ‘Tails’. Mobians last names are almost always associated with their subrace. For example, if the creature would resemble a bear, then the character would be named “… The Bear”. Bird mobian last names may be more specific than other mobian races, as they have subraces within their subrace.
