Crocuti (Hyenafolk)

Race Details

These standoffish, timid beings are primarily hunters and trappers by nature, though sometimes they can be found as mercenaries or merely doing odd jobs in small towns. Due to their similarities to Gnolls, they’re not well-liked. Descended from beings of unknown origin, Crocuti tend to view the world as out to get them and they must take what they can to survive. Often shunned for their size and attitudes, they sometimes seek solitude or run in packs – which perpetuates the fear and mistrust people have of them.

However untrusted they are and wary others are of them, they are not widely hated nor barred from entering towns and villages. They believe in following their pact leader (be it another Crocuti or different race altogether).. If they disagree, they may challenge for the leadership position. This forces pact leaders to be the best they can be at all times.

Crocuti are known for their cunning and elusiveness but they have lesser-known abilities as well.

Crocuti genuinely do not care for magic in the traditional sense – but there are exceptions.
