The mongrelman appeared in second edition in the Monstrous Compendium Volume Two (1989), and Monstrous Manual (1993). The mongrelman is presented as a playable character race in The Complete Book of Humanoids (1993), and is later presented as a playable character race again in Player's Option: Skills & Powers (1995). The mongrelman is further detailed in Dragon #242 (December 1997), which also introduced the infiltrator mongrelman.
The mongrelfolk returned in the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons, appearing in the Curse of Strahd campaign module. Here they are imagined as perverted former humans, twisted into their chimera forms through magical surgeries by a fallen angel.
Each mongrelfolk, or "mongrelman," has a unique appearance, taking on various features from any or all of its ancestral races.
Mongrelfolk are often lawful neutral. Mongrelfolk are excellent mimics, and can reproduce just about any sound they have ever heard.
Mongrelfolk worship the god Meriadar.
While in older editions of Dungeons & Dragons mongrelfolk were defined as deformed outcasts, recent sourcebooks (Races of Destiny, Wizards of the Coast, 2006) gave them the special ability to appear as members of any other race. As such they mix into humanoid society by impersonation rather than being outcast.
