Habitat: Scions can be anywhere and not be noticed, but their homes are often in ancient ruins.

Equipped Weapons & Armor

It is up to the GM to decide if the Scion is being faced in blob form or in a shape shifted form. In blob form, the Scion cannot have weapons or armor. In a humanoid form, the Scion can. However, if the Scion is wearing armor and/or has a weapon, as soon as the scion changes to any form other than a humanoid form, that armor and weapon is dropped. It will be up to the GM to outfit the Scion as needed.

Combat Notes

Scions are prone to a pattern of behaviour similar to that of cartain bird species.  When they give birth to young they immediately place the child in the care of another creature, without that creatures’ knowledge.  Since they have no scent of their own and are capable of completely silent movements they are more often than not successful.  After being placed the scion spends a brief time (one to three hours on average) adopting the form of the specie they will be raised by.  In addition to their new form, they gain the attacks and natural abilities of this form.  Upon reaching Majority as a Scion (twenty to thirty years of age), they also gain the ability to assume the natural shape of a scion.  Aside from the instincive behavior of leaving their young to be cared for others, scions behave as somewhat impatient members of the specie they masquerade as.
 
It is also important to note that Scions contain both genders within each being, and are capable of producing young without a mate but are also capable of breeding true with other species.  Roughly half the children produced in this manner are born scions and the other half appear to be a member of the other parents’ species.  From time to time this latent bloodline becomes aparent and a scion is born to another species of creature


Scions choose to fight as the species they disguise themselves more often than not.  On the rare exception where its natural form is better suited to combat or they are forced to fight in that shape, they lunge forward to bludgeon oponents with their heads, appearing much as a striking snake.  Roughly two out of ten melee attacks by a scion has the side effect of slowing the target, no matter its form.  Those who have seen the scion’s native form have sometimes speculated that it might be vulnerable to salt while so shaped, but this has yet to be proven or disproven.

Spoils

Any and All Available Loot and/or Currency: You may loot the body of any weapons, armor, money, and other goods, if the GM has given the Scion any.
