Rakshas

In the remote jungles to the North, the feline race called the Rakshas live. Their empire has been in decline for an age; their buildings old and dilapidated. The Rakshas are financially dependent on Dwarven caravans from the City of Stars for trade and owe a great depth to the mountain people.

A prideful and hedonistic people, the Rakshas enjoy leisure and are disinterested in the affairs of conquest and politics. Their military focus is on an age-old conflict with the Yuan Ti, the serpent people with whom they share the jungle.

The Rakshas are ashamed of their demonic heritage. Religion is a quiet and solemn acceptance that ancient cat demons were their ancestors. They are a superstitious people – convinced curses or trickery by Rakshasa are responsible for ailments.
