Serpegon

The Serpegons are a race of Gorgons that share characteristics with snakes and inhabit a region in central Setath called Eclax.

Basic Information

Anatomy & Morphology

Origin of Morphology
  Born from the blood of Skiðin, he moulded them to resemble snakes. While they're an anthropomorphic race, they have many similarities with the legless reptiles.  
Anatomy
  They are anthropomorphic, with two arms, two digitigrade legs and an endoskeleton. Their forms are slightly hunched and they have long necks and extremely long tails. They also have five clawed fingers and toes. They are covered in scales, some of which resemble horns.

Biological Traits

Sexual Dimorphism
  Beyond sexual organs and slight voice difference, there is little to no differences between genders.  
Abilities
  They are highly capable of regulating their body temperatures and their scales can be incredibly strong. Some of them also have venom that they can spit or eject from their fangs.

Genetics and Reproduction

They mate as most reptiles do, with a gestation period of 6 months and egg incubation for 2 months.

Growth Rate & Stages

They reach adolescence within 6 to 8 years and adulthood in 14 to 16.

Dietary Needs and Habits

They are carnivores.

Additional Information

Facial characteristics

Their heads are roughly human-shaped; however, their heads protrude more, with their head base being more to the back of their skulls. Their eyes are in the middle of their heads and their mouths stretch as wide as their eyes. They also have small ear holes that sit high on the sides of their heads. However, their features can vary greatly, following the appearances of snake species.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Their eyesight is lacking; however, they have the ability to taste the scent of other creatures, the rest of their base senses are superior to that of most other races.

Civilization and Culture

Naming Traditions

First names generally have little bases, besides following the phonetics of their language Eclaxi. However, last names are based on their chosen deity.
