Curse of the Neverborn's Blood
The Kappa of the Yazak Stepps have been twisted by the effects of the Red Curse, the water the once filled the bowls in their heads has been replaced with Vermeil, and their flesh and hair have been changed to the colour of rust. Spilling the dust from their bowls will in most cases cause the same loss of mobility and strength as their aquatic cousins, however the unpredictable nature of the Red Curse makes this less of a certainty.
Blood Kappa are scrawnier and weaker than their coastal cousins, living in ragged, warring tribes they make periodic raids upon the Baronies and Nations which boarder onto the Yazak Stepps. They do not possess the same sense of etiquette as normal Kappa do, and cannot be placated through the offering of cucumbers.
