During the rule of the Old Balor Empire, it was common practice for the demons to be sexual pray of Humes; or Humes giving their body to the demons for political power. Because of this the blood of Humes and demons has intermingled to create the race of a Asura. Asuras typically look just like Humes, except their skin has a reddish tint, cat-like eyes, and small horns protrude from their forehead. Lastly they have a red long devil like tail. Asuras are usually looked upon as outsiders and with great distrust. They serve as a constant reminder of the dark clutches the Old Balor Empire once had over Shemdelver. They rule, with the Humes, the Eastern Balor Empire, where they wish to cleanse their heritage and wrongs of their demonic ancestors.

Asura Traits:

  • +2 Dexterity, +2 Intelligence, -2 Charisma: Asuras are gifted with heightened reflexes and cunning, but tend to disturb people with whom they interact.
  • Medium-Size.
  • Asuras base speed is 30 feet.
  • + 2 racial bonus on Bluff, Sense Motive, and Intimidate skill checks.
  • Darkvision out to 60 feet.
  • +2 Dodge Bonus to AC.
  • Asuras are encouraged to learn of their ancestors, and thus receive Knowledge (The Planes) as a class skill.
  • Asuras have a natural tail attack which has a reach of 10ft and does 1d6 piercing damage. The tail may be used as an extra appendage to hang from or grab items, but not to hold a weapon or manipulate complicated devices.
  • Asuras are treated as Fiendish for all purposes of obtaining feats, and are considered outsiders (thus effected by spells or not accordingly).
