ECOLOGY

Syaandi are a hardy, nomadic race of lizard-like humanoids forced to adapt when a large contingent blundered through a gate from another world. Thriving in the arid environment, they’ve survived everything the planet has thrown at them, expanding to become the apex predators of their territories, which often range over dozens of square miles. Syaandi split their territories among small family units, each staying close to one another for mutual support. During festivals, they gather in greater numbers to engage in mock combat and athletic competitions. Syaandi often use these events to create further family units by marrying off eligible children, all in an effort to keep the entire race viable.

Syaandi stand nearly 7 feet tall and weigh 250 pounds.
