Despite their name, salamander-folk are more closely related to lizardfolk than salamanders. They're also considered closer to dragons than lizardfolk are due to their ties with fire. However, they have significantly less lizard-like traits — salamander-folk would sooner be considered humans with scaled limbs and flaming tails than bipedal reptiles with powerful jaws and colorful frills.

Salamander-folk are humanoid in shape, but their arms and legs are covered in scales and end in claws. These limbs are bulky, but the scales quickly thin out around the elbow and thighs. Their hands have four claws with one serving as a thumb, and their feet have three claws in front and one at the back for balance. They also have scaled tails capable of lighting on fire. Their skin tends to be tough, shingled with undeveloped scales.

Salamander-folk have little variance in the colors their bodies have. Their skin is usually tan, if not a couple shades lighter or darker, and their hair, eyes, and scales fall in a red to orange spectrum. Their claws are brighter, more saturated versions of their scale colors.

Despite their size, salamander-folk are surprisingly nimble and quick, used to chasing prey through various terrain.


Loud, boisterious, immature, and friendly — all are traits that describe salamander-folk. They have big personalities and thoroughly enjoy being with others, seeing everything as someone to befriend. They're good-natured, kind-hearted, and hard not to love with their curious, open-minded nature.

They live in large tribes in plains and deserts. These groups tend to have little structure, since there is no clear leader. Salamander-folk are simple creatures who judge others by their strength, and get along very well with one another, so they have little need for a heirarchy. A salamander-folk greeting is usually wrestling. They love to fight, seeing it as playful and a bonding activity, and tend to be cheery regardless of who wins.

They're unaccustomed to the conventions of human society, as well-meaning as they may be, and thus tend to come across as quirky or weird. They also don't have a clear concept of gender. Male and female salamander-folk are very alike in builds and easily stand up to one another. Each does their fair share to help the tribe. The concept of gender roles is even more confusing, to say the least.
