Ves

Ves

Art By Andrew "Viking" Bortniak

With two heads and otherworldly looks, the humanoid ves are a sight to behold. Their features are long and round, and their skin is the color of snow. They generally have soft, womanly curves and a full bosom. Their slanted eyes are a deep, dark, glittering, and vibrant blue or purple, and are accentuated with naturally dark lines; their mouths are small with indigo lips. A ridged crest runs like a fin across the scalp (from the bridge of the nose to the occipital ridge), framed by fine dark hair. This exotic beauty is accentuated by their mystique and reclusive ways.


The ves, though female, is born with a "vestigial" twin inside her that is nothing more than a male sex organ, allowing her to reproduce asexually if needed. However, ves are still free to mate for pleasure or crossbreeding with other species if they wish (as they are known for their extreme appetites).


Because they have two heads, ves’ names are two-parted (i.e “Jenvel”) where each part of the name in its own right pertains to one of the heads (i.e “Jen” and “Vel”). The two heads have separate brains, but they tend to function more like the left and right hemispheres of a human brain rather than as separate entities. Ves can speak from either head and tend to use them to perform separate tasks (like speaking with one head and analyzing reactions with another). From a ves’ perspective, there is little segregation between the heads, but one form of ves humor involves banter between heads.


Ves are sensuous, fierce, and commanding ,and are known for their legendary skills. Born and raised in a strict, savage culture where the golden rule is “kill or be killed”, most ves take up careers in the military or as merchants. They make cold, calculating, but brilliant tacticians who can look at a problem from multiple ways at once. They use their attractiveness to their advantage in negotiations and to lure weak-willed men to their folly or even their deaths, so they have gained a reputation as assassins.


They have an antagonistic relationship with races they consider “ugly” or uncultured, but they have a begrudging respect for races that show a savage side, like orcs.
