Fauns

Fauns

A custom race for Pathfinder (14 RP)

Fauns are the descendants of Satyrs and either Humans or Elves. They are most commonly raised by their Human/Elven parents and never know their Satyr fathers.

Appearance

Fauns closely resemble their Human and Elven parents with a few notable differences; first they have curved goat-like horns protruding from the temples of their head and elongated furry ears that can rotate to triangulate sounds. Unlike Satyr’s, Fauns have legs that more resemble their human/elven heritage, though their feet end in a curved hoof where they would normally have toes. Fauns naturally walk on their tip-toes.

Fauns tend to prefer light, non-restrictive clothes and generally go without shoes. Their hooved feet lend themselves well to moving through tough terrain without injury. 

A faun’s coloration can vary as wildly as a Human’s, with Eyes, Hair, and Skin of any color suitable to a Satyr, Human, or Elf.

Alignment and Religion

While often mischievous, Fauns are not inherently evil, they tend more toward Neutral and either Good or Chaotic alignments. Fauns tend toward religions and Deities that spread the joys of wine, dance, music, and food.
