Bakarii are a wandering race, with no set government. They have what can be described as a warlike culture. Everyone is raised to be a fighter, and everyone fights until they die. While they don’t have any form of religion, they do have superstitions. The most common being that after defeating an opponent in battle they will consume the body believing they will gain their strength. It is seen as a great disrespect in their culture to not eat the body of the defeated, it is viewed as if you don’t think they were strong enough to bother consuming. Bakarii are a solitary race and very rarely travel with more than 4 others. Outside of family, relationships aren’t highly valued. This is not saying that they can't form close friendships, only that it is very rare. Things like race, age, or gender don’t mean anything to a Bakarii. The only thing that matters to them is if someone is strong. As such it is very common for Bakarii to engage in relationships with other species, and have same sex relationships.
Bakarii have near impenetrable skin, and bones like concrete. They are fire resistant, and can withstand extreme temperatures both hot and cold. They can fire lazer beams from their mouths and have super strength and enhanced speed. They don’t have the best reflexes, and are often very single minded and rather unintelligent. Their biggest weakness lies in the fact that they have almost no regenerative ability. Any kind of wound can turn fatal if not immediately seen to.Appearance:
They are very short, but weigh over twice as much as a normal human. Their skin is composed of very small scales. Thier skin tones can range from pale reddish to green. Skin tone is passed down genetically through family lines however scale color varies from person to person. Eye color likewise is completely random.
The Bakarii suffer from a condition they refer to simply as Blood-Lust. When they experience intense emotions they can lose their sense of self and become a mindless killing machine. This state causes them to attack friend or foe indiscriminately. The older a Bakarii gets the better they become at controlling their Blood-lust. It is nearly impossible to calm down a Bakarii who has succumbed to Blood-lust. You either have to beat them down or wait till they burn themselves out.
