Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Ogre

Ogre
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

Characters with ogre blood are likely the result of raids on humanoid settlements, but may also derive from alliances between barbaric tribes seeking to create a stronger generation of warriors. A small number of characters with a ogre bloodline are the result of the actions of the magically gifted and intelligent race of ogre mages (in fact, all intermediate ogre bloodlines are actually ogre mage bloodlines). These characters appear clumsy and brutish, but they can possess a high degree of cunning.

Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Storm Giant

Storm Giant
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

of all the giant bloodlines, the storm giant bloodline is the most prominent, in large part because several of the Great Houses of the Rhadynnic Sky Empire claimed descent from these powerful being, including the now lost House Llud of the High kings of Prydain. Due to political marriages, there are now many dynasties that can credibly claim to have storm giant forebears, and even those who do not often say that they do. For their part, storm giants seem somewhat embarrassed that they have become a sign of nobility among so many of the smaller folk, and have become quite circumspect in their dealings with outsiders in recent years.

The progeny of storm giants frequently have a greenish tint to their skin, and rarely a violet tinge instead. Those who tend towards green coloring often have dark green or black hair and deep green eyes. Those who tend towards the violent end of the spectrum, which includes the members of House Gilfaethwy, and used to include the members of House Llud before they were all killed in the whelming of Prydain, have hair that runs towards deep violent and silver or purple eyes.

Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Hill Giant

Hill Giant
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

After ogres, the hill giants are the most common form of giant, and are apt to come into contact with the smaller folk more often than many of the other strains of jattalainen. They are notorious as slavers, and are not above visiting their lust upon unwilling thralls. Hill giants are also often found in the company of humanoids such as euroz and kell, and have been known to enter into close alliances with such creatures that sometimes result in progeny.

Character with the hill giant bloodline tend to be powerfully built, barrel-chested with overlong arms. They usually have brown or black hair and eyes of the same color. Their skin is tanned and ruddy. Like their forebears, they tend to be brutish but often have a cruel cunning.

Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Stone Giant

Stone Giant
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

Stone giants are usually unconcerned with the affairs of the smaller folk, but sometimes a stone giant tribe will form a strong bond with one of the mountain villages or farming families that it trades with. In rare cases, these alliances result in such close unions that they result in children.

Individual descended from stone giants generally have a grey pallor to their skin, and are frequently bald. A very small fraction of those with the stone giant bloodline have hair, which is almost always dark grey or black. One clear marker of stone giant heritage is the eyes, which are almost universally entirely black, lacking even in whites.

Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Frost Giant

Frost Giant
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

Frost giants are alternatively the enemies and allies of the denizens of the icy lands of places like Elizon, Kysthjem, Midtenjord, Langjord, or the Dekkulde Isles. Many bands of frost giants raid their northern neighbors, but they are just as likely to join their some time targets in joint raids upon those from warmer climes. As a result, the frost giant bloodline commonly result both from the depredations of rape and pillage, or from the alliances between frost giants and smaller folk.

Characters bearing a frost giant bloodline tend to be massive for their race, tall and powerfully built. They usually have pale, almost white skin, and hair that runs from dirty yellowish blonde to light blue. They commonly have pale blue icy eyes.

Cloud Giant
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Marid-Blooded

Marid-Blooded
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

The marid are mercurial and capricious, in many ways as unpredictable as the sea itself. Consequently, the reasons that a marid may choose to take a mortal companion are so incredibly varied that trying to pinpoint a particular theme is a fool's errand. For rather obvious reasons most of those who have descended from these water genies hail from families of mariners or coast-dwellers, but given the chaotic nature of their progenitors, marid-blooded individuals are apt to turn up in the unlikeliest of places.

Those with a marid bloodline are often tall and somewhat slender for their race, although they have a wiry frame that is often stronger than they look. Their eyes tend to be blue or green, and often their hair or skin has a slight bluish or greenish tinge as well. Like their forebears, marid-blooded characters are often wildly unpredictable.

Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Dao-Blooded

Dao-Blooded
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

Of all the genies, the dao are the most commercially-minded, seeking out opportunities to trade precious gemstones and exquisitely crafted metalwork objects. The dao are also, like most of their brethren, quite paranoid, and as a result many have chosen to sire a line of children so they can have a cadre of trusted business partners and allies. Even though the dao are probably the rarest of all the genies, their bloodline shows up just as frequently as the others.

Dao-blooded individuals are usually powerfully built for their race, usually with dark hair. Some may even have eyes the color of rubies or emeralds. Those descended from the dao tend to have an acquisitive nature, and are sharp hagglers and bargainers.

Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Janni-Blooded

Janni-Blooded
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

The jann wander throughout the Three Worlds, so the only thing that is surprising about the janni bloodline is that there aren't more of them. While their more powerful cousins the dao, djinn, efreet, and marid each despise one another, as creatures made of all four of the primal elements, the jann tend to get along with all of the other types of genies and consequently their descendants do as well.

A creature who bears the janni bloodline tends to be a couple inches taller than normal for his race, standing with a proud and regal posture. He may also share the janni's nomadic behavior.

Efreeti-Blooded
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

Characters with the bloodline of the efreet are most likely descended from slaves of that terrible and powerful race, although there are stories that tell of despotic fire genies who set up small kingdoms and took human spouses to found a dynasty beholden to their power. In some stories the city of Camocim was founded in exactly this way. The efreeti-blooded are most commonly found in the Tozlu Desert or  Calder, especially in the region near Mount Fire, and some say the dwarves of the Aidake Mountains and the Red Wizards of Valentia derive their mastery of the arcane arts as a result of efreeti influence.

The efreeti-blooded typically have reddish skin and a cruel disposition and may display tiny horns or bronze colored eyes.

Djinni-Blooded
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

Though few sages put much stock in myths that humanoids and genies share a common ancestor, there is no denying that the races are very similar in form. Although there are reports of djinn-blooded individuals from almost everywhere, they are most commonly found in Camocim and the surrounding Tozlu Desert, but some have shown up in the Minzoku Republics, and several local legends tell of people with djinn heritage in Hatalom, Zeme, Calder, and Roholukraj.

Fey-Blooded
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

Every culture tells stories of fey creatures taking mortal lovers, so it is no surprise that individuals display fey bloodlines from time to time. Alternatively, some mortals have earned Brid's favor and her influence has infused the power of the fey into their bloodline.

Regardless of whether it descended from a dryad, nymph, satyr, or other kind of fey, a creature with a fey bloodline often has a personality that is both aloof and carefree.

Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Devil-Blooded

Devil-Blooded
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

For a character with a diabolic bloodline, an erinys is often the source. However, other devils with the ability to use a polymorph effect, such as gelugons or pit fiends, have been known to consort with mortals. Some with diabolic heritage claim descent from one of the Lords of Hell. All šotek claim descent from Ninkurra, so any goblinoids with a diabolic bloodline assert that it is due to her influence. Other Demon Lords who are said to have sired lines include Belial, Darmas, and Ishi.

A character with this bloodline may also possess tiny horns or unusually sharp teeth.

Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Demon-Blooded

Demon-Blooded
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

A character with a demonic bloodline has one or more ancestors of demonic origin. The most common source of such a bloodline is a succubus, but any demon capable of taking humanoid form (and even some who cannot) might be responsible for for the character's unusual traits. Some demon-blooded individuals claim descent from the very Lords of Hell, with Gangyn, Halpas, Khil, Kivutar, Oxossi, and Sethra being the most frequently named culprits.

Characters with a demonic bloodline may bear some minor characteristic reminiscent of such an ancestor such as sinister glowing eyes, a faint smell of brimstone, or a love of brutality.

Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Celestial-Blooded

Celestial-Blooded
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

A character with a celestial bloodline can trace her heritage to beings of the Heavens. Most angels, archons, guardinals, and eladrins have the ability to interbreed with humanoids, and examples of celestial creatures descending from the heavens to live with mortals often appear in the myths and legends of the Three Worlds. Some even claim descent from the Lords of Heaven themselves, and many myths describe various Celestial Lords fathering (or, more rarely, Celestial Mistresses giving birth to) half-mortal children. Caire, Füllar, Hler, Lódur, and Vali are credited with many half-mortal children, while Heim, Forseti, and Tiwas each have a handful of stories attributing mortal children to them.

Those with celestial heritage often have silver or golden hair, a proud bearing, or a piercing stare.
