Dritte

Dritte, gray skinned half-orc half-humans with an elemental affinity with metal, born to a Gehen Volki mother. Dritte have an affinity for metal because the souls whom incarnate into Dritte bodies must go through the shredding the Soul to slash and grind out metal from earth the endless see of razor sharp wires of Meteor Tuefel's Hell. Dritte remember bits of their previous past life as a Zweite or God-Tainted Chikyu-no-min before they died and were churned or cut away and transformed into the metal of Meteor Tuefel's Hell before incarnating into their current life. Dritte also remember bits of their past life before that as a Zuerst or God-Tainted Ha-no-min before they died and their souls were entombed into by the soil and transformed by Grabmal Tuefel's Hell before incarnating into that previous life. These memories normally start to emerge when a Dritte reaches physical maturity around the age of 15. With a Gehen Volki upbringing teaching freedom, harmony through respectful conflict, and reverence towards natural cycles the introduction of memories of Jundo-no-min oppressive societal norms and the complete contempt Jundo-no-min Culture treats the world and those of lesser status around them as exploitable expendable dross creates strong feelings in Gehen Volki with past lives as Jundo-no-min God-Tainted. Dritte natural inclination towards greater than average Wisdom tends to strongly amplifies this.

Basic Information

Anatomy & Morphology

Dritte, gray skinned half-orc half-humans with an elemental affinity with metal. Dritte are roughly as tall as most humans with powerful builds and grayish skin. Their canine teeth often grow long enough to protrude from their mouths, and these “tusks,” combined with heavy brows and slightly pointed ears give them a strong brutish look. Their hair ranges the same hues as humans. Their eyes range all the metallic shades of gray, with a rare Dritte with blue eyes.

Additional Information

Social Structure

Naturally wise and strong, Dritte are naturally inclined towards having powerful senses of justice. Frequently they are looked to when wrongs are committed to set them right even though they lack the bravado and force of personality to quell crowds through words so they act instead. Frequently the right hand of a more personable leader. Dritte do well in most Classes in Gehen Volki Culture except Warlock. They are wonderful warriors and prosperous experts, or commoners. They are often expected to be shamans due to their talent for it, and often are druids too.

Civilization and Culture

Interspecies Relations and Assumptions

Dritte are members of the Gehen Volki Culture. Due to remembering previous both the incarnation as the race whose elemental affinity proceeds their current life, and also the incarnation as the race whose elemental affinity proceeded that life, in addition to there is a significant chance they have parents, siblings, or children whom are not Dritte, racial condemnation against other Gehen Volki races seems ridiculous to this race.

Procreation and Interbreeding

An important thing to remember about Dritte heredity is that they have both orcish and human heritage. When two Dritte procreate together their children may be Dritte, Vierte or Zweite, favoring Dritte progeny. When a Dritte and a Zweite procreate together their children may be a Dritte, and Zweite progeny without statistical bias. When a Dritte and a Fünft procreate together their children may be a Dritte, Vierte, Zuerst, or Fünft progeny without statistical bias. When a Dritte and a Veirte procreate together their children may be a Dritte, or Veirte progeny without statistical bias. When a Dritte and a Zuerst procreate together their children may be a Zuerst, Dritte, Zweite, or Fünft progeny without statistical bias.

Interbreeding Between Cultures

When a female Dritte procreates with a Jundo-no-min Mizu-no-min Gehen Volki God-Tainted male begets a Zuerst or Fünft progeny without statistical bias. When a female Dritte procreates with a Jundo-no-min Osen-no-hito God-Tainted male potentially begets Zuerst, Dritte, Vierte, or Fünft. Dritte males can successfully procreate with a female Gehen Volki God-Tainted Jundo-no-min Mizu-no-min or Osen-no-hito, and when they do it produces Osen-no-hito.
