Information

Domandanur are the offspring of the mating of a human and a thond. Fortuitously, they benefit from both some of the size and speed of their human parent and much of the strength and endurance of the thondish one, though their capacity for abstract reasoning and similar feats of intellect is often seen as lacking. In their favor, though, the domandan stamina seems to be magnified far beyond that of either progenitor race; it is in this area that domandanur truly come into their own. They also possess great vitality, and recover from fatigue far more quickly than most races. Interestingly, the combination of thond and human blood results in a peculiar lack of pilosity; no domandan has a single scrap of hair on torso, head, or anywhere else.

The domandan race is not numerous, and has no native culture to speak of. They seem more readily accepted by humans than by thondur, perhaps due to their similarity in stature to their taller parent, and so most have been wholly or partially assimilated into human culture. Naturally these speak Anglic, though many make an effort to learn the Dethek common to their shorter forebears.

The particular combination of traits enjoyed by domandanur seems to make them excellent warriors and even better gladiators; many domandanur are the result of breeding programs instituted by slaving rings for the purpose of producing these prized fighters. This unfortunate background results in many domandanur entirely lacking education and any but the roughest social skills. This does little for their popular image, but domandanur persevere. In fact, that ability to keep going despite all obstacles seems to be the talent that earns them what acceptance they do enjoy.

Domandanur inherit some of the thond nightvision and little of their longevity, though those that do not perish in gladiatorial pits can live considerably more than a hundred years. They display some of the resistance to disease and poison that thondur enjoy.
