A zakya can twist its backwards hands, enabling it to wield weapons normally.

Information: The 'basic' rakshasa is but one breed of that fiendish race that dominated Eberron for hundreds of thousands of years in ancient times. Spawned from the blood of Khyber, the Dragon Below, the rakshasa race includes a race of warriors: the zakyas.

Unlike other rakshasas, zakyas enjoy combat and plunge into melee with relish. They are accomplished combatants and masters of their chosen weapons. They supplement their martial skill with limited spell-like abilities useful for weakening their enemies.


In addition to the mind-reading and shapeshifting common to all of their kind, the zakya also receives bonus Combat Feats & meets Feat Prerequisites as if it were a Fighter of level = their Hit Dice.
