Ophiduan, Semiferum Caste

This creature appears as a hideous, yet somehow pathetic, cross of man and snake. A vaguely humanoid torso,covered in reptilian scales, melds into an enormous serpentine tail at the waste. A gaunt humanoid face, also covered in scales, bulges in odd spots as fangs far too large for the mouth push at the thin lips from within.Sporadic tufts of hair just from the top of the head, giving the creature almost a sickly appearance.

Tactics Semiferum ophiduan are straightforward combatants, and are used as frontline soldiers by their more powerful and intelligent brethren. The semiferum are culturally predisposed to consider themselves worthless and expendable, so they often continue to fight against odds that would send other creatures into retreat.
