Proxy (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
The Proxies are superbeings created by highly advanced science in order to protect earth from invasions, but some of them went rogue and now they are terrorizing earth. The others are trying either to stop them, or to live their life and to avoid being discovered. Despite being originally lab creations, they are an actual race and can reproduce with each other, although they rarely do so. Proxies that were created in the same lab often consider themselves as siblings, and take care of each other.
Good ones are happy to help to everyone needed help. Neutral ones usually care only about themselves and their friends, however won't hurt others unless it is necessary. Evil ones, however, are malevolent tyrants that take whatever they want whenever they want. Their basic personality traits are very human-like. If they remain lonely for too long, for whatever reason, they can easily develop some form of insanity.
Proxies look a lot like humans, except their skin is dark blue and their eyes are pure white. Anyway, they can disguise themselves as other beings (see Disguise).
Good and neutral ones can get along with any non-evil being, usually while in Disguise, while evil ones rarely hide their true identity and rule over some region as virtually indisputable tyrants, and tend to enslave weaker beings. Regardless to their alignment, proxies sometimes associate with other proxies from similar alignments.
Any, however there are more good and neutral ones than evil ones. Originally, they all were good, so even the most evil proxy still have some good in it. However, they are far from being innately good; newborn or newly created proxy can be nurtured to any alignment.
Any, however they prefer inhabited areas, especially big cities where one can easily blend in (or, in the case of evil proxies, they can rule over many subjects).
Most of them, especially evil ones, don't worship deities at all, however ones who do aren't inconceivable. The exact deity/deities depend on their alignment.
Proxies are proficient in all languages thanks to their innate Omnilingualism ability. Anyway, they typically begin conversations with Common, as an attempt to blend in, coexist and pose as mortals. Evil proxies may choose to speak in ancient languages in an attempt to emphasize their significance or to elevate themselves above their subordinates and other creatures they find inferior.
While in disguise, any. Their true names tend to be archaic and (respectively) simple, without surnames, while "proxy" functions as their collective middle name (such as Kenix Proxy, Lune Proxy, Mare Proxy, Pearl Proxy, Will Proxy, Swan Proxy and etc.).

However, they cannot climb on perfectly smooth surfaces; they must have some gripping points (although, even a gripping point as small as a square inch is enough for them).
- Disastrous Charge: When a proxy charges, it creates a destructive shockwave that hits anything in and around the charge's path, dealing them 6d6 hit points damage and stuns them for one round. Proxies are resilient to the shockwave effect, aren't getting stunned and gain only 2d6 hit points damage.

|10||The proxies were originally created for the purpose of protecting earth from invasions. Over time, some of them were corrupted and went rogue, while some still serve their original purpose of protecting others. There are also some that choose to play mortals in intend to live their life in peace.|
|15||Evil proxies are usually the malevolent tyrant type, and tend to enslave weaker beings, which they see as inferior.
