Kobolds are short, tiraki descendant humanoids with bony frames and small tails. They stand approximately 2 to 2-1/2 feet tall and weigh 35 to 45 pounds. Sinewy, double-jointed legs, naturally bent and poised for sudden speed, contribute to their height. When her legs are stretched out, a kobold can increase her height by up to 1 foot, but doing so is uncomfortable.

Kobolds have scaly skin, varying in color from rusty brown to reddish black. They have strong teeth, and their hands and feet have long digits tipped with very small claws. A kobold’s face is like a crocodile’s, with a jaw that can open wide enough to hold a whole melon. Constantly alert and wide, the eyes of a kobold range in color from burnt ochre to red. A ridge of small, hornlike bone juts above each brow and sweeps backward, the protrusions growing larger and more pronounced toward the rear of the skull.

Because kobolds so frequently inhabit nuclear waste sites leftover from the old society, they suffer a lot of birth defects. It is extremely common to see a kobold with an extra set of small dysfunctional limbs, one eye in the middle of the head, or other weird defects. Kobolds do not look down on defected young. They have completely accepted the wide variety of shapes their offspring can take on and no longer see any one form as the right one.
