Yuan-ti purebloods are the most human-seeming of all Yuan-ti. They are snake-human hybrids, which were created in the earliest days of civilization. Their culture fell from an advanced and enlightened state into cruelty and fanaticism. Purebloods are described as human-like with minor reptilian features like a forked tongue, snake-like eyes, and patches of scales on their skin.
Their height and weight range is the same as humans. Purebloods usually speak the language of their race, which involves a great deal of rating noises and hissing that require a forked tongue to execute. Most of the purebloods also learn Common in order to blend into foreign areas.
