Yuan-ti Species in Aidonia | World Anvil


1st of Sun's Swell, AE 721  
The Yuan-ti, also known by their endonym, Reszmeni, are a species native to the Mahidian highlands, located in the northern reaches of the country. They are known for their snake-like features, as well as the variety of agricultural products produced in the fertile volcanic soils of the land they call home.

Basic Information


The placement of scales on the Reszmeni can vary greatly from individual to individual. Color is also quite variable, with green, brown, and black being some of the most common, but grey, yellow, orange, and pale lilacs are also seen. They also often have vertical slit pupils, with iris colors spanning the typical humanoid range.   Their fangs are hardly discernable from ordinary canine teeth without close inspection; only slightly sharper and longer than that of most humanoids, a groove down the distal surface of the fang guides venom from a small gland located between the soft palate and the nasal cavity. A measure of control over the amount of venom injected is possible, meaning fatal bites are exceptionally rare. Their venom is hemotoxic, meaning even restrained quantities can cause tremendous pain, swelling, and sometimes nausea.

Genetics and Reproduction

Reszmeni reproduce sexually, with gestation periods lasting an average of nine months. They are able to interbreed with other species with ease. Their slit pupils seem to be a dominant trait, commonly passed down to mixed children.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Reszmeni have the same dietary needs as your average humanoid.
