Trenosant (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
That thing in that mad man's tower wasn't like anything I'd ever seen before. But, no matter what he did to it, it wouldn't leave his side.
Trenosant are humanoid creatures made by wielders of the arcane arts. They have a wide variety of appearances, ranging from looking like Orcs to Halflings, but many of them have the appearance of humans. Their skin color is most often a gray, but can be anywhere from pure white to a dark black. Trenosant are affected by the skill level of their creator, as a clumsily made Trenosant are often nothing more than glorified flesh golems. But, an experienced creator can make a Trenosant that is almost indistinguishable from a normal humanoid in terms of bodily functions. While many that are unfamiliar with them assume them to be little more than slightly more intelligent and useful golems, their obedience does not mean they are easy to handle. While they are loyal to their creators, anyone else being unfair, rude, or even slightly annoying to them may find themselves without their company.
Like many creatures in the world, Trenosants were first created by a Wizard. He had wanted a more effective familiar capable of aiding him, while being more useful than a homunculus, and more obedient than your average apprentice. Using a mixture clay, flesh, various magical materials, and his own blood, he fashioned a body and imbued it with magic. Soon, the first Trenosant was created, and was completely loyal to their creator.
Trenosant society relies heavily upon their creators, but after they pass, many Trenosant migrate to cities heavily involved with magic. They were all made for a specific purpose, whether that is to be a bodyguard, or to be an apprentice to their creator, and they often continue with these purposes long after.
Often times, Trenosant names are based on concepts or names from their creator's race.
