A powerful and savage race with many natural means of defence and attack. With some magical abilities the Kairyu prefer to fight unarmed but many do fight with weapons. Extremely resourceful and creative the Kairyu have a great grasp of smiting and explosives, having made many types of weapons. The Kairyu live under ground for the most part, so they're very used to total darkness and having to work their way through solid rock. They tend to come in packs and live very closely together, although not cold blooded, they like to stay warm. They have a very strong sense of honour, preferring to fight 1 versus 1. Most Kairyu can be very calm and controlled.
