The Perfected Makhai
The Charun are the perfected Makhai, the third iteration of the race, which consists of both male and female genders. As the youngest of the Makhai races, they were few during The First War; however, since then their numbers have grown greatly, becoming the most prevalent of the Makhai.
Anatomy & Morphology
They are anthropomorphic, with two arms, two legs and an endoskeleton. Their skin is thick and textured with shards of black bone protruding from their epidermis along parts of their bodies, notably their spines and the back of their limbs. They are completely hairless, with the exception of the hair on the top of their heads. Their hair is typically black or dark red.
Males or often larger and stronger than females, with larger horns and cranial formations; however, females are more flexible and have stronger immune systems since they bear children.
Genetics and Reproduction
They reproduce like most mammals do, with a gestation period of about three months. The Charun's genes are dominant within their racial group, meaning that any offspring between them and the Succubi or Deimos will by Charun; however, between other races they'll be halfbreeds.
Growth Rate & Stages
The Charun have an incredibly fast early life cycle. They reach adolescence within five to six years and adulthood within ten to twelve. This is due to them being created for the purpose of war. Their old age is considered to be around the 800-year mark, at which point their skin turns paler and their bone protrusions overgrow.
Dietary Needs and Habits
The Charun are carnivorous but will eat pretty much anything from plants to each other.
They have human features with strong jawlines and high cheekbones. Their eyes vary from orange and red to black, their sclera is always black. They also have long horns that protrude from the corners of their heads, they can be simple bull-like in shape or have complex twists and branching forms, these horns turn black near the end.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Their primary senses are on par with most mortal races, with the exception of their sense of taste, which is so strong they can taste blood and sweat in the air from over 500m.
Civilization and Culture
The Charun's names are based in their native language of Křalug.
Major Language Groups and Dialects
The Charun were Křacos' third attempt at creating a mortal race that can breed, an important factor since the mortal race needed to be able to replenish its ranks during the war. While they were created very close to the end of the First War, they still had a noticeable impact on the other mortal races, killing numerous and even drawing blood from many of the Menaðíos. At the start of the new era, they and their kin left seeking themselves a home, eventually ending up in Ersetu. Since then many have returned to Domus and settled a colony in the southern reaches by the nations of the orcs.
Interspecies Relations and Assumptions
The Charun have little aversion towards the other mortal races and are often open to creating relations with them. However, they usually intend the relations to benefit them; otherwise, it's considered a waste of their time. On the other hand, most races distrust them and see them as monsters.
