Turtle Duck (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Long ago, the four nations lived in harmony. But whether it still is or not doesn't matter- You're a turtle duck! The most lovable fuzzy cutie stuffed in a shell! Protective of her poor child now pelted with bread, the turtle duck mother rises against the tyrant child prince Zuko with a bite, only persuaded by his mother Ursa to stop her rage and assault against boy.

The turtle duck has a duck's head, neck, and tail, but the body, shell, and legs of a turtle. Its neck, tail, and most of its head are light brown or beige in color. A dark brown stripe runs from its bill back over its head. Its legs and unfeathered body are of the same shade of brown. Its shell is dark green and its scaly underside is light green or off white.
In ancient times, the large turtle duck pond added to the Fire Nation Royal Palace became one of the structure's most widely known features. By the time of Avatar Kyoshi, many Earth Kingdom nobles had constructed their own mansions in likeness of the Fire Nation Royal Palace, including a turtle duck pond.

Turtle Duck Names
Turtle ducks usually don't have names, as they are usually simple animals- unless kept as pets. As pets they are given usual pet names. Give your turtle duck a name you'd give to your own pet turtle duck if you had one.

Natural Shell Armor. You have natural armor thanks to your shell that doesn't weight you down too much. Your AC is now 13 + your Dexterity mod when not wearing armor.
