Vishkanya are ophidian humanoids with scaly skin, pupilless eyes, and a split tongue resembling that of a serpent. They are rather intelligent and insightful creatures, and they enjoy using poisons, deception, and all-around secrecy wherever they go.
While they are quite perceptive, they can also be quite irrational where their actions portray a different type of personality than they usually possess. Most other races find them rather graceful and alluring, at least in their own peculiar way.
They make for great spies and assassins, but also teachers, and their abilities are greatly appreciated by other races. This fact allows them to pursue those jobs with ease where their names become known, names like Irjise, Ykoeses, and Xseilkso.

Think about where the character was born, how they grew up, what do they believe in, what do they feel their destiny is, and create a name worthy of all the turmoil their deceptive ways will surely stir up.
