Satarre are a race of reptilian humanoids possibly related to dragonborn from the Midgard setting for Pathfinder and Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition. They also known as the Children of Nidhogg, for they are devoted servants of Nidhogg the World Eater, the dark draconic god of oblivion that constantly seeks to destroy Yggdrasil, as well as a wide array of other dark gods of entropy, death, and ruination. Most satarre are found leading or assisting dark cults dedicated to nihilism and entropy, seeking to accelerate the inevitable destruction of all things; as a result, the race is bitterly opposed by both the Ravenfolk and the Volmar. In comparison, they are often frequent allies of demons, vampires, drow, derro, darakhul, dhampirs and tieflings.
Ironically, not all satarre believe there is a need to accelerate the approach of oblivion. Known amongst their own kind as "latje", meaning "the slothful ones", these heretical satarre simply ignore their sacred duty - some even go so far as to actively turn their backs on their mission and warn other races about the coming of the dark gods.
