Semme (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Since the Semme are partially related to owls, they sport some owl characteristics. Their chest is more so plummage, covered with a thick layer of feathers. Usually these feathers are various shades of browns and greys, but can sometimes contain whites or blacks. Their legs are long and their feet are clawd and scaly. Their chest protrudes and they stand tall, walking on two feet. They have arms that double as wings with hands and clawed fingertips. They are almost completely covered in feathers. Their mouth is a beak but they are still able to speak human languages. About three quarters of Semme grow at least 2 horns on their head by the age of 15. Their wings are massive; twice their size, and are capable of flight. They stand at around 9 feet tall, and there is only one real difference between female and male Semmes. Females are slightly smaller in stature and are less imposing.
| The Semme have been around for only a small amount of time as compared to other races. They are an aberrant people, created from the mixing of bloods to form the Semme. They are subject to a twisted bloodline based off of horned devils, humans and griffons. It is unknown how many other creatures and races have helped form who they are today.
| The Semme are known to be intelligent but unconcerned with the problems of others. Some would call them simply just selfish, but they argue that it's independence that made the smart man. They live as a civilized people in populated areas. They could care less about other people of their kind, and treat all people equally. Semme are also characteristically lazy, or sleazy, if you will. While females and males have their difference, they achieve the same things in society and males and females are equal in that way.
