Delinor Race

The Delinor are a race of small reptiles native to Delin, an arid world of the Outer Reaches. Delinor travel widely, as they are highly sought-after assassins, spies, and confidence beings. Most Delinor are looking for a new place to call home after Delin was abruptly taken from their hands two centuries past. Delinor are resentful of megacorporations, but otherwise have learned a tolerance for the more prevalent races. Delinor tend to congregate in clans, which have loose genetic connection, but are not necessarily close family. Delinor clans can be found on many worlds, especially near busy spaceports. Delinor try to avoid bringing attention to themselves, but some individuals have become well-known.

Physical Description: Delinor tend to be fairly slight, standing a tiny bit shorter than most dwarves, but massing significantly less. Delinor are true reptilians, and are covered in tough sand-colored scales from head to foot. They have no visible ears, but have small pits on the sides of their heads. Delinor use their prehensile tails to carry small objects and to hinder their enemies.

Society: Delinor society lead by the elders, generally those of the first generations after the Exodus from Delin. While not always competent, many of the elders have accepted their roles in life, and try to provide good models of behavior for their clans. Most clans advocate martial defense of clan-mates, and as a whole Delinor have no qualms destroying any who hinder their lives.

Relations: Delinor resent the aloofness of elves, abhorr the fecundity of humans, and grudgingly admire the industriousness of dwarves. They have a lot in common with the other smaller races, as they are often given little notice, and have been known to provide aid to gnomes and halflings in their communities. Delinor despise goblinoids for their general stupidity, and are respectful of the power of the orc clans. Delinor clans tend to attract a lot of attention, as the generally friendly reptilians are known to have safe neighborhoods.

Alignment and Religion: Most Delinor tend toward neutrality. They respect their clan orders, but governmental law is a difficult thing for many Delinor to follow. Delinor help those around themselves, but out of a sense of community, not a value judgment of right or wrong. Delinor tend not to worship any of the major deities, but some minor gods of the hunt make their way into the occasional Delinor home.

Adventurers: The more tech-savvy Delinor find their way aboard transports and freighters across the sector, often as valued crewers. They take to the life of a spacer without hesitation, but also rangers, rogues, and druids abound. Delinor sorcerers draw upon the magics of their ancestral deserts, and are known to be quite potent.
