Bio:

Scar-Alak was born to an influential Yuan-Ti family in some of the farthest reaches of Yuan-Ti territory. A half-blood, his original form possessed a pronounced black snake’s tail instead of legs and a distinctive snake-like head. Most assumed he would serve as a strong warrior to the Yuan-Ti, but that was far from the truth. At 10, he was presented per tradition to a Yuan-Ti priest, who declared that Scar-Alak was blessed of Zehir. How exactly this is determined is unknown even to most Yuan-Ti, but it meant that Scar-Alak could take on an alternate, more humanoid form if trained in the proper magic. These Yuan-Ti are incredibly rare, and most of them are adopted into the elite group known as Zehir’s Chosen. The Chosen serve as the Yuan-Ti’s best infiltrators and spies, and their operatives are well trained in the arts of deception.

Scar-Alak trained for ten years as custom dictated. When he completed his final task by returning to his people from Kauthia with a very detailed description of Duke Andor’s defensive formations and positions along the Northern border, he was finally recognized as a full member of Zehir’s Chosen. After that he served ten years as a spy in Kauthia.

While Scar-Alak enjoyed the lifestyle of espionage and intrigue greatly, he was displeased by the sheer amounts hatred so many of his compatriots possessed. He had never been raised to hate all that is order and discipline as so many Yuan-Ti were. His family was not interested in toppling the Kauthian Empire, and they did not take well to Zehir’s demands that the world must be destroyed. He eventually left the Chosen after he served his requisite ten years, and returned to live with his family in relative peace. But his old life still called to him. The mountains held no adventure for him.

Thus it was that Kilik-das approached him. She charged him with a mission, one that would require him to risk his life in the Empire.

“Find Shanilsa. There is the cave that I spoke of. Find it. Find him. Return to me when you have done so.” ~ Scar-Alak’s unknown benefactor

Scar-Alak is part of the Pasu Sikra tribe on Yuan-Ti. He was born in the city of Sarlon.

Appearance: Scar-Alak has two forms. In Yin-Shu form, he appears almost human save for yellowish eyes and a forked serpentine tongue. This form has dark hair with slightly pale skin, with a height of 6’. His second form, Half Blood, has a long, sleek snake’s tail in place of legs. It is covered with black scales from head to toe, and his head is more snakelike than human.

He wields a curved sword with a decorative groove down the middle.

Note on the image: This is an accurate image of his half blood form, but his armor and weapon are much more akin to something you would find in Kauthia than those in the picture.
