The slairu are a mysterious race of humanoid snake men. While individual slairu vary in appearance, they are almost always covered in fine, iridescent scales and greenish-tinged skin. Their heads are hairless and their eyes large, yellow and reptilian. They worship Mershuul, a god of reptiles, and generally revere all reptiles as sacred animals. They frequent operate in human cities, using their special abilities and generally humanoid appearance to infiltrate the community and establish small cults dedicated to Mershuul's worship. A typical lesser slairu is ruthless, intelligent, and cunning.
