A tall, lanky elf with extremely pale, scaly skin and sunken eyes sits in a large throne at the end of an inimical hall, the hostile architecture resembles those of snakes and serpents. In chambers up and down the spire, there are swarms of snakes. The elf slowly stands, opening his eyes. They are pure pools of orange, with sharp black lines going down the middle. He grins, showing off his long fangs and hissing his pitch-black forked tongue.

Viper with Conviction[edit]

A Serpentine is anybody with an affinity for the serpentine side of them. Serpentines are experts of deception and stealth, slippery in social confrontations, and ready to strike at any opportune moment. Every Serpentine has a serpent animal companion, like a barbarian and his axe, the snake is the man's weapon, and the two are one. Serpentines adventure for multitudes of reasons whether it be to further the understanding of what they are, or spread their religion. Their motives are never clear, but are always well-defined within the confines of the Serpentine's mind
