The Kingdom of Daytar Leamay
Personality: The decedents of the Paymars are all taught from a young age about “the purge”, the slaughter of their family by the Harramany royal line family during the Mauwti War 250 years ago. They are rebellious, stubborn, and often charismatic. Even the ones born without the were-jaguar genitics have some small measure of cat like luck.
The Paymars are the remnants of an ancient werejaguar race that was wiped out centuries ago, leaving only three blood lines carrying the magical shifting ability ( See History). Even so, the bloodline has become diluted and those left have lost much of the powers of their ancestors. Each child born to the Paymar family has only a 5% chance of having the shifting ability (1 or 2 each generation) and only 1% has the full range of their powers (1 every 100 years)
Most have reddish auburn hair and stunning green eyes and a single telling feature they can’t seem to get rid of, like silted pupils, whiskers or even a soft downy fur, most dress to hide these features. There is tell in ancient histories that the most powerful family members could take the form of all or any cats from lions to house cats, even cat like creatures such as Displacer beasts. But no one has been born with that level of power in many generations.
Not considered true Lycanthropes, members of the Paymar family line are more akin to shapeshifters than the cursed lycan. These shifters do not carry an actual curse and so cannot inflict lycanthropy on to anyone else nor do they possess the hybrid form of the lycanthrope.
Relations: As members of an ancient nobility they often find themselves embroiled in politics. They harbor a deep distrust of “Western Provence” residents and out right hatred of western nobility, particularly the King.
Alignment: Most members of the family are CG but any alignment is possible.
Paymar Lands: Depending who you talk to the entire eastern Provence is theirs, but in reality the family owns many properties in and around Grenneta, Nader, and Mat Jabar. They are treated with respect and deference by Boxin Clan members.
Religion: The Family doesn’t support any one religion over others but would never lower themselves to worshiping a Western Provence god or goddess.
Language: The Paymars put a high significance on schooling and many can speak a multitude of languages, they stress the importance of diplomatic languages, however they only gain Common and Sylvan automatically.
Names: There are no specific names used, however having an ancestor’s name is considered an honor.
Adventures: The family members tend to adventure to raise fortunes to make political moves, or out of boredom from politics. Paymars make excellent sorcerers, rangers and rogues.
