A variant on the centaur theme, serpentaurs are part elf and part snake. Found in remote wilderness areas, serpentaurs are widely varied in appearance, and need not resemble elves or other humanoids native to the same area in coloration. Their elven skin tone varies from light tan to dark brown, while the scales of the their serpentine lower bodies can have almost any pattern of colors. Hair and eye colors span the entire range of human coloration and then some. A given individual is likely to have eye and hair colors that match the colors of its scales.

Like centaurs, serpentaurs are an old race. Unlike centaurs, serpentaurs remain reclusive. Very rarely is an individual found in or around a humanoid city. Living off the land, nests of serpentaurs find little need to trade with outsiders, though they have been known to provide intelligence and advice to individuals interested in defending their wilderness homelands from unwanted incursions.

An average serpentaur stands 7 feet tall when perched upright on its tail, and can weight as much as 1,000 pounds. Its body is 16 feet long from head to tail, and proportionally thicker than that of a snake.
