They have sharp features and their skin tones are usually somewhere in the middle of black and midnight blue. Some have dark purple hues. From its back sprout two leathery wings, much like a bat's. All Raikoths have red eyes.
Relations: Raikoths hate all races other than their own. They will kill any other race on sight.
Alignment: The alignment is always lawful evil. They were bred in evil and kill for rank; much like devils. A Raikoth who differs from that alignment would be hunted and killed. The only way a Raikoth could be of a different alignment and survive would be for it to grow up in a diffrent place besides the plane of sorrow.
Lands: All Raikoths live in the plane of sorrow; a vast and dark place. It is always raining there and most of the time a storm is brewing. It is always pitch black in the plane of sorrow.
Religion: Raikoths serve no god. They believe that divine powers get you no where and are a waste of time. They believe that their race is more powerful than any god could ever be.
Language: Raikoths speak their own language: Raikoth. Most also speak Abyssal and Infernal. Some can learn Common.
Names: Names of Raikoths are much unknown. The only names that have been heard of are some of the evil generals and sorcerers in the myths.
Male Names: Volk, Zak, Narokk, Rokaz
Female Names: Senditrizt, Layzantya, Craneshh
Adventures: The only reason a Raikoth would take up adventuring is because it seeks to destroy many things and gain power and rank in its society or because it is of different alignment and somehow escaped its fate of death and wishes to explore and train.
