Sons of malicious, predatory mothers, hagspawn are not a complete race, as there are no females of their kind. Hags continue their awful lineage by taking human males for mates, usually murdering and devouring the hapless captive later. The female children of a hag quickly grow into hags like their mothers, but the male children are hagspawn - half-human outcasts. Feared and hated by normal humans, hagspawn must make their way in the world by dint of their strength, hardiness, and sheer determination.

Most hagspawn take on greenish skin and brutish features, while those descended from night hags tend to have violet complexion and sometimes fairer features.
