The brutish, dull-looking humanoid before you is covered with a brown, almost-furry skin, and its jutting jaw does a poor job of hiding its misshapen teeth.
Despite their bestial appearance and utter lack of social skills, thokolas are honorable and proud warriors, living their lives in a secluded Hinterlands realm. They have only recently become known to the planar community, when a clueless pack wandered into the Cage and offered bodyguard & mercenary services. The thokola society follows a number of complex customs and taboos, but doesn’t really expect foreigners to acknowledge these. However, the thokolas who venture onto the planes are surprisingly adaptable, and usually willing to learn about the bigger picture. An average thokola stands a shade under 8 feet tall, and weighs some 400 pounds. Thokolas speak their own language, and some also learn Planar Trade.
COMBAT The thokola culture glorifies personal combat, and almost all thokolas, particularly males, are brought up as members of one or more warrior clan-guilds. Regardless of clan, they are all taught never to attack an obviously weaker foe unless insulted, and never to gang up on a foe unless it is bigger than two thokolas put together. There are many other such guidelines, but they vary from clan to clan.
Pounce (Ex): If a thokola charges, it can make a full attack even though it has already moved.
Powerful Build: The physical stature of thokola lets them function in many ways as if they were one size category larger. Whenever a thokola is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), the thokola is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to him. A thokola is also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creature’s special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect him. A thokola can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, his space and reach remain those of a creature of his actual size. The benefits of this racial trait stack with those of external effects that change the subject’s size category.
Skills: A thokola has a +4 racial bonus on Jump checks.
