  • Purebloods appear mostly human, with minor reptilian features, such as slitted eyes, a forked tongue, or patches of scales on their skin. They are the most common of the Yuan-Ti and make up the bulk of their population.
  • Halfbloods are humanoid in shape but have a wide variety of noticeable serpentine features, such as a snakelike tail in place of legs, a complete covering of scales, a hood like a cobra, a snake's head, or snakes in place of arms.
  • Abominations are almost completely snakelike, with only a few human features, such as arms or a humanoid head. They are the most venerated within the yuan-ti society, serving as royalty of the Yuan-Ti.

   This ceased 20 years ago when the Celladrians left their empire to return to their home.  After more than 300 years of forced primitiveness, the Yuan-Ti are slowly trying to restore their civilization.
