The lashunta are race of humanoids that exhibit a curious sexual dimorphism. The most obvious similarity the two sexes have is a pair of thin, twitching antennae that sprout from just below their hairlines. Beyond that, male lashunta are compact, muscular, and hirsute, whereas female lashunta are tall, lithe, and majestic. Their personalities also differ somewhat; females are generally charismatic and commanding, and males are brusque and war-like. However, both sexes are equally intelligent, civilized, and competent on the battlefield. Most lashunta prize magical, mental, and psychic potential over common physical prowess.
Lashunta society has a long and proud matriarchal tradition—women are often expected to take up leadership roles when the need arises. While lashunta men may seem more obviously suited to (and enjoy engaging in) brawling, both sexes regularly become warriors and adventurers, in part because their telepathy makes groups of lashunta more effective combatants. Yet fighting is ultimately a secondary concern to most lashunta, who instead highly value scholarship and the thirst for knowledge, particularly lauding the arcane classes for the high degree of intellectual stamina they require.
Female lashunta are typically 6 feet tall and weigh 140 pounds. The males of the race are usually 5 feet tall and weigh 200 pounds.
