SRD‎ > ‎Fey‎ > ‎


Akin to Satyrs. The Menahune is a fey with the hindquarters of some hooved beast, usually covered in hair, possessing incredible strength. They are a race known for their exceptional strength. Despite their size, they have strength that exceeds that of mortal men. This leads them to be the guards and warriors among the fey.  They are an intense, tenacious and assertive. Menahune are among the most earthy of the fey and enjoy working with their hands. Their high strength and aggressive tendencies tend to cause menahune to choose combat over more social solutions.

Personality: Menahune are passionate yet flighty. They take on tasks with their whole heart but are quick to abandon them 
when something more interesting comes along. They are almost monomaniacal when they are in the midst of something. They hate interruptions and will often become angry and violent, though good ones will destroy property rather than injure others. They can be spiteful when slighted, and like many fey, become self-righteous when angered. Nightmare Menahune will often pay retribution on a family generations after the initial slight was suffered. 

Physical Description: Menahune have the lower body of coven-hooved animal. Their upper torso is more human like but their faces definatley have bestial attributes. Boar Menahune have red or black hair, while stag Menahune have white or brown hair with small antlers protruding from their brows. As they grow, their animal features can change over time. 

Relations: Menahune do not usually get along well with dwarves. Dwarves find Menahune unreliable, and Menahune find dwarves too serious to bear for long. When a Menahune’s temporary goals coincide with those of a dwarf, however, they can become fast friends. Other races have mixed reactions to a Menahune, and vice versa. Humans fear and respect them, and smart ones will not take any aid they offer for granted. Menahune appreciate such grateful humans and will do their best to make their lives easier. The ungrateful, however, commit a grave transgression and will be punished.
