The thri-kreen are a kind monstrous humanoids with a similar appearance to some species of mantis.[1]

History Edit

There is solid archeological evidence that the thri-kreen once claimed Stormreach as their own city. They established their own structures withing the underground sections of giant ruins. What destroyed their civilization is totally unknown.[2]

In modern day Stormreach, the thri-kreen make excelent guides for anyone wanting to explore the jungles or underneath the city. One reason for their aptitude as guides is their immunity to the Traveler's Curse.[2]

Appearance & Personality Edit

Thri-kreen are medium-sized humanoid figures resembling an anthropomorphized four-armed praying mantis.[1] Their favorite environments are arid grasslands. As a general rule the thri-kreen like hot and dry weather.[1]

Thri-kreen are hunters who revere nature. Their spiritual leaders are druids. The thri-kreen do not worship any gods. And they form strong bonds to a small number of individuals that they live with. Thri-kreen don't trust anyone outside of this small group of friends.[1]

Abilities Edit

Thri-kreen have access to psionic abilities, and are skilled combatants that make use of their four arms in battle to deadly effect.[1]

Thri-kreen do not sleep.[1] Some scholars posit that this may be because thri-kreen exist simultaneously between the Material Plane of Eberron and Dal Quor, the Region of Dreams.[2]

Lands Edit

A small number of thri-kreen live under Stormreach.[2] More are said to live in the Menechtarun desert of western Xen'drik.[3]
