Qullans are warlike humanoids tainted by chaos and insanity, their rage and aggressiveness rivaling the baser demons. These creatures are capable of honing swords to a phenomenal edge, but no warlords of other races have yet taken advantage of their strength or skill because so chaotic are they that merely doing anything against their will causes them deathly pain.
A qullan looks like a muscular human but stands over eight feet tall. They cover themselves in body paint and ritual scars, and either go naked or wear only light furs to show off old wounds from past battles. Qullans’ propensity to chaos is palpable: merely being in their presence induces confusion and panic.
Qullans live in small tribes of up to twenty members with no internal hierarchy, though stronger individuals of either sex (usually barbarian or bloodragers) gravitate towards leadership. Qullans rarely speak, even amongst themselves, and seem disconcertingly serene and withdrawn when not in battle, spending almost all their free time sharpening their blades, but the merest suspicion of non-qullans nearby drives them into a rage that will not abate until blood is spilled. They have no sense of strategy, relying on their aura of confusion to break enemy defences. Qullans never willingly work for other races, but desperate warlords have been known to herd qullans into warbands and simply drive them ahead of their main force as shock troops.
These beings may once have been humans or a minor race of giants, but something in the distant past altered them and inflicted them with a racial insanity. Most sages ascribe their insanity to a demonic curse, and indeed many qullans revere demon lords of blood and battle, but the fact that the only other beings qullan tolerate are the vile foulspawn point to a far more otherworldly origin for their madness.
