Pisinguislor (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
When they are Piscium, you look like a relatively large fish, with a red shimmering face that arcs in a rainbow over your back to your purple tail. When you are Stans Grillus, you look like a human sized grasshopper, standing up. When you are Falco, you look like a large white kestrel. And when you are Serpens Rana, you look like a large, a bit girthy, snake with a frog face.
The Pisinguislor were born of a genetic experiment on a fish, a snake, a kestrel, a frog,a grasshopper, and a bit of Fey magic. The Creator, as they refer to it(gender not known) had done many experiments with Planar Energy and the Weave, and the Pisinguislor were the pinnacle of their achievements. A kind being, the Creator created multiple tribes across the land in areas perfectly tailored to their needs. From there, they grew to what they are today. The only disturbance in the peace was when a mighty army of warriors from a neighboring kingdom set up a military base in the homeland of a small tribe while they were on a hunting trip, and came back to find the land completely ruined. They traveled for days to find a new home, finally finding another tribe and joining them.
The Pisinguislor live in tribes all across the globe. They revere the Creator, but have no gods. Each tribe has a Grand Elder, who leads the Council of Elders whenever decisions are necessary. They also choose a warrior to protect them and lead them in battle. Besides that, they all live in small grass/bamboo/wood/straw houses at riverbanks and lakeshores. They all speak Latin, a language the Creator supposedly taught them.
The Pisinguislor names are all derived from Latin. If you so desire, you may name your Pisinguislor any Latin name or word you want.
Male: Laneus, Volantes
