Augusti Tyrannis are the one of the trickiest, deceitful and downright lewd races in the planes. They claim to originate from an elemental plane of lies, deceit and betrayl though many scholars agree that their true origins are carceri. Augusti Tyrannis claw their way through life at the expense and manipulation at others. They would much rather gain some wealth then kill anyone though, and those who deal with them do so at great risk, for they are likely to turn on their employers if someone offers a higher price.
Augusti Tyrannis can take on the form of any normal humanoid, and whilst on the material plane they often take on that form for their entire stay on the prime. Their real form is of that of a tall, guant humanoid with shadow-colored skin. They wear a twisted imitation of flamboyant sophisticate clothes, yet they are almost always black. They have long arms that reach all the way to their ankles and dark crimson hoofs instead of feet. Their strangest feature is their ram-like skull for a head, covered with blood-red patterns and empty eye-sockets that glow an eerie red light.
