Yuan-Ti Purebloods are humanoid creatures that have one or two distinct snake-like features, such as snake-like eyes, forked tongue, patches of scaly skin, and so on. They are of a similar size and weight to humans, and many have psionic powers.

Their personalities are rather alluring and almost magnetic, and they enjoy spying and deceit. Since they aren’t as likely to stay attached to their tribe, they often venture to the outside world, where most successfully infiltrate other societies.

Due to their snake-like nature, their language has a lot of hissing, which also shows in their names. There is also no need for last names, as they simply all belong to the Yuan-Ti race. Names like Sshetshih, Yolsush, and Hahlothass are common ones.
