The oldest of the ophiduan castes, the anguineum are the true progenitors of the race, and the creators of the other ophiduan. The anguineum are an ancient race, older than humanity and even, according to their own myth, older than elves. They are merciless, predatory, and despise the fact that mammals are currently the dominant civilized species.

For most of their recorded history, the anguineum ruled the ophiduan, but they were eventually overthrown by their own creation, the hominis caste. While any given anguineum is more powerful than a hominis, the hominis’ greater intelligence, and their aptitude for clerical magic, allowed them to prevail. While some anguineum still resent their reduced position in society, most now accept it as the will of their unnamed god. Should his will ever dictate that the anguineum rise again, then circumstances will permit them to do so.

As with the other ophiduan, anguineum are covered in snake-like scales, though theirs are thicker than those of their brethren. Anguineum ophiduan are actually long enough that they should seem to qualify as large creatures. Due to their distribution of weight, however, and the fact that much of that length is in the tail, they mechanically qualify as medium. They average around 400 pounds. Anguineum are able to wield spiked chains as one-handed weapons due to their unique shape.
