Crocodilian humanoids. Sobekki are a primitive race of crocodilian humanoids that most sages believe to be extinct. A typical sobekki stands six feet tall with an equally long tail and weighs 300 pounds.

Their thick hide is typically a dark green or grayish color. Their large, powerful jaws are full of sharp teeth.

Vicious carnivores. Sobekki are excellent hunters and prefer to eat meat whenever possible. Sobekki are well adapted to their aquatic environment.

However, their large tails greatly hamper fast movement out of the water. They often make their homes underneath the banks of warm rivers.

Ambush tactics. Sobekki are fierce warriors, especially if encountered in the water. They prefer to surprise their opponents by laying an ambush near a watering hole or river trail. They usually hurl missile weapons and then close in to use their powerful bite to finish the job. In the water sobekki attempt to drag opponents underwater and drown them.
