The Serpentis sub-genre of dragon descendants are variants of serpents. They have a bodily serpentine element, but may have limbs and heads resembling other more humanoid species. Most dragons consider them a blasphemous offshoot; the particular humanoid/serpent combinations produced spectacularly cunning sub species, with a decided lack of empathy for other species. The Serpentis family of draconic descent are almost always hostile to others, aggressive, but lack the Essence to achieve any of the Hamazd dream powers of their true blood cousins.
