Very rare, these crossbreeds of Human and one of the offshoots of the planar-traveling Gith race have strange abilities that often mark them for difficult lives. They are usually thinner and taller than average humans, with a definite tint of yellowish tone in their skin, small, sometimes almost nonexistent noses, high cheekbones, wide thin lips with very little rouging, and occasionally with spotted or mottled skin around the joints and the edges of the face. Their hair is stiff and brushy compared to a full blooded human, and generally only grows on their head.
Lucky Half-Gith that favor their human parentage lack the skin spotting, or else its so minor that it is covered over with a little makeup or concealed by a suntan, have hair that is simply very straight rather than brushy, and have fully formed human features including a normal nose, though still chiseled and lean.
Gith are generally born with innate Psionic gifts. Many hone these natural abilities actively, but others seek other pursuits, particularly those with a monastic orientation.
In human societies, Half-Gith often try to disguise or downplay their Gith features, accentuating their humanity. Some others develop their Psionic gifts sufficiently to leave the Prime Material Plane behind and go off to seek their fates elsewhere.
GM Permission is typically required to play a Half-Gith.
