Aerial are beings with hollow cartilage instead of bones, which give
them the natural ability to fly without wings. This state of lightness
keeps them extremely light of foot. Aerials can wear most armors, but
their fragile bodies render armor ineffective at absorbing attacks.

Elves are thin, graceful creatures with pointed ears. Their bodies
are somewhat frail, and they may bruise even when wearing thick
armor. Because they are typically nimble, elves of any class may
attempt to hide in shadows. Elves are naturally endowed with the

to influenced attacks if neutral. However, they do not have the

Shikari are ancient kin of tyrlings, a predatory bloodline that thrives on
the influence of its dying prey. Influence wielding affiliations view
these small hunters with mingled trepidation and amusement, for the very
thing that the shikari seeks is also their greatest weakness; they have no
natural resistances against affiliated spells and powers and will quickly
succumb to such attacks.

Tigris are tiger-like humanoids with sharp claws. They are
quick and agile, their claws even sharper than some weapons.
These standing creatures of prey have their own unwritten
language, and can see normally in low light. Due to their

Their weakened constitution makes them susceptible to
disease as well.

Tyrlings are descendants of dwarves, but slightly taller. They are
pensive creatures, with wiry bodies. They are a wild little race,
in spirit and in blood, with a heightened metabolism that allows
them to heal naturally faster than others. They are, however,
quite susceptible to madness and psionics. Many a tyrling has
fallen prey to a Telerean.

Umbral are hulking humanoids with a bad attitude. They take combat
quite personally and often become enraged when they lose control of their
emotions, causing them to lash out with wild ferocity. Too large to ride
a horse, they can bear two-handed weapons in one of their large fists.
Umbrals have difficulty finding armor to fit their large bodies.

Wivere are large, serpent-like creatures with scales and a long tail.
They can easily wield weapons in one hand that would normally require
two. They are somewhat slow to move, but their minds are quick. Their
blood is poisonous to others, making them immune to venoms. Wivere
are extremely tall and heavy, making them unfit for horses and most
armor. Their sluggish metabolism causes their bodies to slow in cold
