CaracdÝr are the degenerate lizardmen offspring of the awnshegh known as the Hydra, having bred true within the foul swamp in which the Hydra lairs. They live in the Harrowmarsh, where they have slowly formed a primitive society of sorts. Here, they resist most intrusions by outsiders, maintaining the purity, as it were, of the Hydra's realm.

Combat
None too bright, caracdÝr will usually pile on the largest attacker and rip him apart. CaracdÝr have, however, been known to exercise great deviousness when hunting, and any expedition into their territory should take a very cautious approach.

Poison (Ex): A caracdÝr that successfully bites a creature delivers its poison, which has an initial and secondary damage of 1d6 Con, and a Fort save DC of 12.

Bloodline: As the descendants of an awnshegh, all caracdÝr carry some of Azrai's tainted blood. Most caracdÝrs have a bloodline score of 6 and no abilities. Leaders of at least 8 HD tend to have bloodline scores of 12 and either the Alertness or the Animal Affinity blood ability.
