Male and Female S'Kra Mur

Play.net Description

The reigning theory of the origins of the S'Kra Mur is that Hav'roth, in all his forms, created them and imbued them with sentience -- a hypothesis no more and no less valid than Elothean creation myths.

Whatever their origins, no one denies they are formidable in physical combat, combining the swiftness of a striking cobra and the strength of a bearhug from an enraged boa constrictor. While their scaly exterior may throw off those with warmer blood, S'Kra Mur hardly care what those races may think of them. In S'Kra Mur society, honor is measured by the length of one's tail -- and the opinions of those without simply aren't worth considering.

Character Creation

The S'Kra Mur figurine opens hooded eyes and gazes at you. A sibilant voice issues forth: "I am of the S'Kra Mur. We are the ssserpent folk. While we have two arms, two legs, a torso, and a head like any of the other races, our smile is the serpent's smile, our scales the serpent's scales, and our eyes the serpent's eyes. We strike like the snake with its agility and grace, and calculate our moves with the cold method that resides in our very blood. We are dangerous to encounter, and even more dangerous to cross."

The S'Kra Mur stands tall and lithe, cold skin glistening with a faint tracery of scales. Slitted pupils slash its eyes down the middle and a short tail curls restlessly behind it. A chill presence lurks within its gaze, at once vaguely repulsive and strangely hypnotic.
