Tiger Anthrolupe (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
While their looks and build can vary, they are mostly similar to larger humanoids in both shape and size, but appear more muscular. In some cases they look closer to Weretigers with the bulid of of an average Anthrolupe and snouts that seem to be a middle ground to those of Tigerfolk and Anthrolupe. They are covered in fur that varies in color and stripe pattern depending on the region of birth. Due to their beastly appearance and fierce reputation, they are often feared and discriminated against.
Since they are a crossbreed, there history is mostly tied to their parent races. Their life-style depends solely on the community they live in or based on their on accord so it can vary a great deal. At their best they are loyal allies and friends, being very peaceful towards all and at their worst they can go on a "bloodthirsty" like rampage unable to discern friend or foe. They at times live somewhat similar to monks when they're more at peace with the world and rumors say that some Tiger Anthrolupes can live well up to 300s if they have live a balanced enough life-style.
They do have a strong sense of society, whether or not said society accepts them. They are mostly an honor-based society. They tend to live in close-knit clans, termed "packs", and are rarely seen living in cities and towns. They care deeply for those from the same pack, often even willing to give their own lives in defense of friend or kin. Much of their values and beliefs stem from the Tigerfolk and Anthrolupe as well as a dedicated code of honor. Those who break the laws of the pack, are often banished and left to fend for themselves. In this society, they're gender neutral in almost all roles and positions. Power and honor of the pack are held in higher regard than the individual and especially other packs.
