From D&D Wiki
“Often one wrong word, one bad stutter, can result in the death of many.” – Okka Commoner
|OVERLORD Manga/Anime https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overlord_(novel_series)|
Okka are humanoid lizards, they have no scales. The okka's skin is abnormally smooth and warm. All known generations of okka are albino and look exactly the same, despite the runes that are engraved on their skin to show outsiders who is who.
Okka are clever yet feeble race, inside the underdark okka are seen as a slaves. Okka are forced to take "unwanted jobs" such as gathering hazardous materials or (If the okka is lucky) they can be forced to be a emissaries do to their natural appeal, and quick wits in conversations. Majority of "Okkans" deaths are from attempts to escape from there captivity in the underdark. Okkas live in large family, dotting the underdarks other populations instead of a more condensed society or grouped neighborhood. Oftentimes the lack of housing okkas can aquire in the underdark can lead to larger percentages of homelessness than other species, but this doesn’t usually last long as they’re likely to get caught and enslaved. The general population has never reached a "Stable" population, it is currently unknown how the okka avoid extinction.
Okka hold try their hardest to hold on to their dying traditions. Most okka are materialists believing that life is hard, Gods arn't real and the word "god" is just a title given to those who are superior to all others. Okka are generally untrusting to all races other then their kin.
Outside the underdark
Okka are found in areas with dense forests (Or in similar locations that the sun's rays are absent/minimal). Okka take inside jobs such as shop keeps, merchants and other indoor jobs. It's very rare to find a okka outside the underdark but not impossible. Okka are normally put on "fake smiles" when approached by other races and act friendly. When conversing with other of its kind the okka speaks truthfully and speaks with whats on her mind, in their own tongue of course. Okka are normally hunted when they escape the underdark to be resold as slaves.
Inside the underdark
Inside the underdark okka are found in the "Middle Dark". The occupation of okka are "slaves", Okka that ain't slaves are normally heavily indebted. Okka are scarce in the underdark, taking up jobs that the Okka's masters or other forces put them up too. Because of the genetic structure of the okka they also found them self in lots of experiments both alchemical and magical. Okka are also are not seens much in the streets, this is because the fact majority of Okka are forced to dawn cloaks for clothing, often the okkas masters will not buy them clothing of their own. The cloaks normally brand a company logo or emblem of the family they are enslaved too. It isn't uncommon for a Okka to attempt to escape their "Unsavory life" to the surface world, most okka die or are recaptured. Okka that escape the underdark never return to the underdark in fear of the captivity.
Okka names are normally given to them by their parents but are replaced by the species that the Okkas parents work for. If a Okka gives their real name to another creature this is normally a sign of great trust but if the creature to inform others creatures of the Okka’s name, this is considered a great insult. This was never originally apart of their culture but over the years it slowly was integrated in.
