Salamander Kin

Deep from the underdark, specifically within the hottest of climates, beneath volcanic lands and pools of magma, originate the Salamander. These serpentine creatures had also came from the Elemental Plane of Fire, mixing in with humanoids of the lands above. From this, comes the Salamander Kin, large, hot-headed creatures who have an affinity for the flames. They inherited the greed and vileness of their monstrosity ancestors, as well as their tendency to be Neutral Evil. 
  Salamander Kin are serpentine creatures with a humanoid torso, snake heads, and humanoid arms and other parts. They are known for having long, stretchy spines, beginning from their tail, all the way to their neck. This allows them to have more finesse with their movements, especially in what a regular human would consider a straining activity, such as combat, or avoiding traps in a dungeon. Regardless, their spines are a wonder, allowing them to be perfect for many jobs an adventurer may need to do. 
  Salamander Kin are experts with mainly a zoned fighting style. Often, their weapons of choice are javelins, spears, and throwing knives. Not only that, but with skin that is hot to the touch, burning those who try to fight with their fists, it allows for them to keep others at a distance. However, if a Salamander Kin is deciding to become more aggresive, their main tactic would be to constrict their enemies, until they burn to death.
