Background: The Half-bloods form the middle class in Yuan-ti society. Though not treated well by the abominations, the Half-blood have far better lives than the Purebloods. Day to day life requires that the Half-blood participate in his trade. what trade he practices is determined by his Abomination rulers. though this usually stays the same during a Half-blood’s life, it could change if other trades works die. The Abominations will do what they think is best for the Yuan-ti as a whole,with little care for how it effects the Half-bloods.
As a whole, the Yuan-ti are a theocracy devoted to evil. Their primary god is Merrshaulk. The Yuan-ti are divided into three sub-races. Abominations, Half-bloods and Purebloods.

Languages: Common, Yuan-ti
Role-Playing Suggestions: The Yuan-ti are an evil race. The rare exception might still tend toward this, or they might fight against this with all their will. Also the Half-bloods have serpentine mannerisms, licking the air, bobbing of the head, and so on.
Special Advantages: Half-bloods can detect poison on a successful save vs poison when rolled before the poising is used. they also have a +2 to saves against all poisons with an additional +2 for every five levels.
Special Disadvantages: Being cold blooded, Half-bloods have trouble regulating their body temperatures. In warm locations (over 85` F) the Half-blood must rest in shade for 30 minutes for every hour of activity. If this ratio is not met during a 12 hour period, then the Yuan-ti take a cumulative -1 on all checks and attack rolls, until he is able to get the required amount of shade and rest. Because they do not sweat, if a Half-blood spends more than 1 turn doing strenuous activity, in heat (85`F and over), they take a -1 to checks and saves. This can be removed by resting for 20 minutes in shade.
Monstrous Traits: Monstrous Appearance, even the most normal looking Yuan-ti Half-blood is an unnatural sight. Monstrous Habits. Half-Bloods cannot stop themselves from exhibiting snake like behavior. Because of these factors Half-bloods take a -4 on all reaction checks.
