Silats were shapeshifting hags that roamed the wilderness of Zakhara. They would venture into the cities of the Land of Fate under magical disguise to search for food.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Their true appearance was that of a giant humanoid female with pale green or blue skin. Their hair was a darker color of their skin. Curved ram horns sprouted from the side of their head. Older silats had longer horns with the horns growing a full spiral every century. A silat’s teeth and nails were yellow but harder than obsidian.[1]

No matter what form they took, silats always wore rags that barely concealed their skin.[1]

CombatEdit

All silats possessed superhuman strength. They could attack with their claws or with a bite. Magical or iron weapons were needed to injure them and they were capable of regeneration. Silats were immune to poison and mind-influencing spells.[1]

Silats could polymorph at will once they reached adulthood. Matriach silats, those older than five centuries, could also polymorph others.[1]

Habitat/SocietyEdit

These usually solitary creatures could be found just about anywhere in Zakhara. In order to discourage encounters, they often disguised themselves as hideously ugly women.[1]

Small groups of silats could be found living together in the wild. The females would mate with ogre magi. Male offspring were ogre magi and all female offspring were silats.[1]

All silats preferred to be left alone and treated with respect when they were encountered. Individuals who showed respect and displayed manners were rarely eaten.[1]

EcologyEdit

Silats were nocturnal and much of their time was spent in search of food. Neutral or good silats ate animal meat while evil ones preferred human or demihuman flesh.[1]

Silats were treated with ambilvalence because they were known to be extremely helpful to those who approached them in the correct manner. Unfortunately this manner varied between each silat.[1]
