Morinch

Physical Description: Looking like grayish black skinned goblins, these creatures were once the brethren of the Goblinoid creatures, however the two ended up splitting when a large sum of Goblins were taken to the Underdark and Shadow Plane to serve the Drow and Umbral Dragons, eventually making their skin a grayish black.

Society: Morinch do not have their own society, instead living under another race be it the Drow, Umbral Dragons, or even as measly bar tenders in the Shadow Plane for the Fetchlings. Whatever the case may be, there is no known society owned by the Morinch. They are known, however, to have gained freedom in the Material Plane and roam freely in society, often being much more sociable than their Goblin cousins.

Relations: Although slaves to the Drow and Umbral Dragons, the Morinch have been known to interact with other races and get along with quite a few of the racial groups. Fetchlings take pity on the Morinch, letting them work in their taverns and inns, Humans and Elves find Morinches to be an interesting case and often study them, all the while Gnomes think Morinches should lighten up (both literally and metaphorically). Goblins have been known to throw Morinch children in with their own kin, however the Morinch children typically end up eaten by the other Goblins.

Alignment: While within the Underdark and Shadow Plane , Morinch adopt the Chaotic Neutral or any of the Evil alignments from their environment, however when raised outside of the typical environment, the Morinch are known to take on a more Chaotic Good/True Neutral take on life, helping people on occasion, yet keeping to themselves for the most part.

Adventurers: The Morinch make excellent Alchemists and tough spellcasters, however they could also do well as Tacticians and even Rogues. Morinch do not take up religious classes, as they do not believe deities are worth their time, and that worshiping concepts are simply ridiculous.
