While it is true that a number of half-krolvin are the random result of Krolvin raids on coastal towns and villages, the majority of the race are the result of a breeding program by a specific krolvin, who went by the name of Krintaur. It was Krintaur's hope that he would breed an army of half-krolvin at his command ... a hope that eventually led to his exile on a rocky, inhospitable island far from his krolvin home. The colony of half-breeds flourished on the small island, but eventually their numbers began to expand beyond what the small island could accommodate.


Half-krolvin most often wear their heritage in their bodies, an undeniable badge of identification. Most half-krolvin have pale skin, but their skin tones are within the range considered "normal" on a human, except that they often support a blue or blue-grey tinge, as you see on a human who has been overexposed to the cold. They also tend to be hairier than the average human, and much hairier than the average elf. Many half-krolvin tend to have disproportionately long arms ending in long hands with elongated fingers and swollen-looking knuckles. Often the elegance and delicacy of their fingers is remarked on, along with some comment as to how the swollen knuckles mar the beauty of the hand. Also, in profile it becomes apparent that the foreheads of half-krolvins tend to slope backward into the hairline and they often have a concave chin shape. The most obvious attribute that is used to prove half-krolvin heritage is a hair growth from the top four vertebrae of the spine. This is obviously easy to cover with clothing in most circumstances, but can be construed as damning evidence if a being's heritage is called into question for having krolvin blood.

Half-Krolvin take less damage from cold attacks as if they wore heavy critical padding. This bonus will stack with any other modifiers that apply (e.g., armor).
