Braguon are abhumans that live among the dense flora of the Ninth World.

Background[edit | edit source]

Green skinned like the forests and jungles they call home, these abhumans are somewhat less aggressive toward human beings than other of their own kind. They're more isolationist in outlook, but much like all abhumans, they're brutish and bestial. Braguon gain status among their kind through strength and intimidation. If approached by others, they will react poorly, usually either attacking or fleeing immediately, their weird hoots and whistles fading into the forest that they know so well.

These abhumans roam the forest, hunting, scavenging, and generally living short, shallow lives. Though they live in the woods and know its secrets, they have no love for it or its inhabitants. They kill and destroy out of pleasure.[1]

Combat:[edit | edit source]

The typical braguon warrior tends to be relatively weak. They rarely ever use weapons, relying instead on their claws. Their attacks are uncoordinated and somewhat clumsy. They never wear armor.

However, the process of giving birth toughens a braguon, so sometimes an older female who's had multiple children rises to a position of power within a band. Her greater size and strength ultimately makes her into a tougher opponent.

Interaction:[edit | edit source]

Braguon mouths are strange fluted things that couldn't produce human-like words if they wanted to. The abhumans communicate through a series of whistles and pops. They react to the actions of others with violence or terror, disappearing into the trees.

Use:[edit | edit source]

Some of the weakest of all abhumans, braguon are less effective as an overt threat and more useful as a way to show the truth of abhumans in general: even those who don't raid human settlements or ambush travelers are still unpleasant and awful.

Loot:[edit | edit source]

Very, very occasionally, a single braguon will have a cypher on them.[2]
