Veran

The verans are a race of humanoids that were once fully human, gnome, kor, or vishkanya. They differ in that mixed in with their blood or genetic nanobots. The tiny cellular robots power themselves with the food the person eats and replace damaged cells as they die. They cause the veran’s eyes to glow and eventually leave a trail across their skin that look like veins or circuit boards. As they age they become more and more synthetic until there is no organic material left and their nanobots die with them following soon after. They are rare now, though long ago they had an entire country. Only female veran can give birth to new veran as the sharing of blood with the infant is necessary to pass on the nanobots. Otherwise a veran man will have normal children.
