Physical Qualities

Satyrs are humanoid with the lower body of a goat and the upper body of a human.

Their heads bear plentiful, curly hair and ram's or goat's horns. The horns are highly variable in size and utility; some satyrs can use them as weapons. Ears are slightly pointed but not elongated. A few satyrs have animal ears, typically those of a goat, tough other animal ears rarely occur. The humanoid torso of a satyr is very human-like, satyrs can easily disguise themselves as humans if they cover their legs, horns, and ears.

Male satyrs tend towards larger horns and often sport curly sideburns or a goatee. Their body hair sometimes makes the transition from man-torso to goat-abdomen blurred. Females often hide their smaller horns in their profuse head hair.

Satyrs wear jewelry if they have it, garlands of flowers otherwise, but never heavy clothes. Typical dress is a pelt, vest, jacket, sash, or cravat. Females sometimes wear long skirts or dresses that conceal their legs, and both genders can don robes and hoods as a disguise. Satyrs don't wear shoes, and any magical shoes the put on transform into leggings.

Satyrs have lifespans comparable to humans.

Playing a Satyr

Satyrs are hedonistic and wild, living for the moment and in the main refusing social restrictions and barriers. They enjoy brawling, wine, dancing, music, and flirting above all else. Female satyrs are sometimes called meneads, and prefer to provoke others into fighting rather than to fight themselves. Satyr heroes are rare, and tend to break with the norm, be more serious and involved. While they can see far-reaching goals, they still have trouble planning for tomorrow, and their companions often have to remind them of the urgency of their task. But once in motion, they work with great vigor.

Satyr names tend to be silly, pompous, or vulgar and are often full of innuendo.
