Nearly as tall as a typical human, the humanoid reptilian hisskra shares many characteristics with mankind. A long snout filled with an array of sharp teeth dominates the hisskra's facial features, giving him the appearance of a bipedal iguana. Well-defined pectorals and a muscular torso are nearly man-like, but for the dull, dark green scales that fade to a paler shade at the throat, and the ridge of mottled, boney spines that runs from between the hisskra shaman's shoulder blades to the tip of his four-foot tail. The hisskra's muscular limbs end in thick-fingered, partially-webbed hands and feet tipped with blackened claws, which are formidable weapons should the creature lose his more civilized martial implements. A primitive necklace formed of the bones of various sea creatures hangs around the shaman's neck, signifying his rank.

Hunting strategies

Like the other Hisskra the shaman are protected by thick, scaly, plates. A physical swing can be negated by this armor or can even jar a weapon loose. This can be a devastating problem if there are other hisskra present. It is often advised to use throw away weapons and have them e-bladed. Hisskra, and the shaman are no exception, actually will work together and drag off stunned or prone allies to safety. The shaman have a habit of casting Minor Sanctuary if any of their allies in the room are deceased and subsequently raising them.

Their thick scaly hide, however, makes small weapons and arrows a difficult prospect (even for like-level ambushers). Spell-casters must be wary of the hisskra tail-sweep maneuver, which can put you on the ground. By themselves, the shaman don't put up much of a challenge, but combined with their brethren they can leave you dead with your weapon on the ground.
