Savage Earth: Cold Moon
Dakini are the result of a Human and a Deva (or Asura) mating, gaining a little from both parents. Dakini can grow body hair like humans and are no more or less attuned to Magic than them. They gain the Devas’ grace, pointed ears and extended lifespan but none of their environmental frailty. Most Dakini are well-adjusted, but some are shunned by one side of the family or the other and grow resentful. Others may even be mistreated.
- Their life-spans are closer to their human parent than those of their Deva kin, however when most Dakini live to about 100 years they often live to see several generations of their human family born and die.
- Heritage: Some Dakini retain the grace of their Deva or Asura parent. Others gain the adaptability of their human ancestry. A Dakini may either start with a free Edge of his choice (as a human), or a d6 in Agility instead of a d4.
- Low Light Vision: The character’s eyes amplify light like a cat’s, allowing him to see in the dark. He ignores attack penalties for Dim and Dark lighting.
- Outsider: Dakini aren’t true outsiders (as per the Hindrance of the same name), but neither are they ever quite comfortable around humans or elves as one of their own, so the effect is the same.
