While in an area with ample debris, a keulia can spend 1 hour adhering pieces of debris to its scales. This grants the keulia a +2 racial bonus on Stealth checks while in that environment. A keulia can shed its current camouflage with 1 hour of work; otherwise, it sheds it gradually over the course of 1d6 weeks.
Environment temperate or warm forests
Organization solitary, pair, or masquerade (3–30)
The keulia is an omnivorous lizard with a hermit crab’s penchant for acquiring and covering itself in useful detritus. This is primarily a camouflage function, allowing the reptile to blend in with its surroundings. However, more than a millennium of domestication has resulted in a less timid creature that rarely scampers or bites. Keulias today are prestige pets that are often groomed with all the care one would pay a bonsai tree, delicately coaxing the lizards to absorb gems and precious metals into their hides. They naturally shed their camouflage, and so intermittently shed a few jewels every month.
