Saiyans (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Being of a warrior race, Saiyans can adapt both physically and mentally to any combat situation. As such, most Saiyans tend to show no fear in combat as fear and anger can drive the Saiyan into an unbridled rage. Many tend to have a superiority complex, stemming from an and enlarged ego padded by their advanced power. As such, they tend to be brash and thick headed with the tendency to jump into the fray before even considering the consequences.

Physical Description[edit]

Saiyans, from the basic outlook, look identical to humans, although they age slower and live up to twice as long. However due to their culture they don't often live to their full age, always in the midst of combat. They are almost universally buff and strong, men and woman alike, due to this warrior culture. They possess black, green, and brown hair but never natural blond, and their eye colors vary as much as any human. They are born with quite a bit of hair to begin with and it grows slowly, often never changing in maximum length once fully grown. Most notably the Saiyans possess a long monkey tail, a weak sensitive point but useful for balance, and key to triggering the lycanthropic transformation into an Oozaru.


Saiyans are generally of the mindset of the Prideful Warrior, and as such come off as dominating and overbearing to others. Because of this, they do not get along well with others unless they lose a struggle of wills or an actual fight. If they lose the altercation, they tend to respect their opponents as they have proven their strength in battle.


Saiyan life strays to chaotic lifestyles, as the power a saiyan possesses often gets to their heads.


Saiyans come from the planet Vegeta, Its existence has been terminated. But given the number of saiyans who have escaped to other worlds, and those who survived the destruction there are many possible clans out there.


The saiyans have no known religion, but they do have a belief in a super-being who will be born among their ranks. This "super saiyan" is the basis of the current ruling family's power, as they believe they possess the blood necessary to become one.


Saiyans speak Common, as the original language of the saiyans has vanished over the years. Vast traveling around the stars have forced them to abandon their racial languages.


Saiyans have first names, but are not known to keep last names. Members of the royal family often possess the name of those before them, such as the title and name of Vegeta.
