The humans born here are a bit special, holding capabilities as vessels for spirits, they are actually the oldest race outside the spirits. Humans are a minority in the eyes of many of the races, simply because they are unacknowledged. They pay a price to use the powers of a spirit, these can be elemental, or special abilities, certain spirits are weapons that humans can control. The stronger the power, the higher the price and the quicker you usually have to pay up. Some spirits just have terms and conditions you must follow, or you pay a costly fine of sorts. Certain human households are respected but most are looked down on by all races, despite being the oldest surviving race in the netherworld. The main houses of the human kingdom are theStronghelms, The Biavens, The Amarr, and the Von Gisil.
Biavenhousehold as 2 decided son's one has passed away, the other is Loki Biaven the youngest. Open for any younger/older sibling.
Amarrhas no representation at this point.
Stronghelmhas many children, only one has been named ; Vaan Stronghelm.
Von Gisilhas only 1 announced son, he is 17 and oldest; Aiden Von Gisil
Side Note: Kyera Terrwyn is the premarital child of the wife of Huey Von Gisil, current head of the Von Gisil.
Due to their amazing ability to heal, the family makes money off their own kind. A true powerful Amarr can be drained of his blood, and be fine come morning. Those of the main household rarely have someone born who is not sold away as puppet wife/husband for breeding. Certain weaker generations are trained to be perfect warriors, and are usually breed with another family branch to strength the ability in the child. Of all the human Netherian households, they are the most controversial, morals mean nothing in the face of money.
Red/Orange Tigers. These are the Spartans of our society, from birth they are raised only to be the perfect warriors. Weak pups are killed at birth, there is no runt hell cat in the Red Tiger clan. The leader Kamal is a fierce and greatly feared leader, with an affinity for the fire and lightening element. He teaches there is no love, there is no mercy, that Hell Cats are invincible and the strongest creatures. They are comparable to Dragon's when hunting in packs, at least on power level.
Byakko, their leader is probably the greatest strategist the world as ever seen. A female tiger that uses both the water and the fire element to create an Ice element. White tigers are considered to be more of an intellectual stance than war mongers like the Red Tigers. They are trained to fight so they can hold their own on the battlefield but they are trained more as the medical pack.
They are the rulers of the hell cats, but are composed of several types with the Lions being the lead. Cheetas, panthers, lions, and cougars are the main groups within this clan. However in this bunch you can find hell cats similar to bobcats, lynx, and pumas who are usually the ones that tend to the care of the bigger clans and are broken up amongst them all despite calling the Lion's territory home. Their leader is named Xerxes, a man with a kind face and cold heart, those under his rule are similar to politicians. It is their job to govern the other hellcat's, keep them in line.
Their pack leader is named Nebi, a black leopard. Leopards are spread across all climates and areas, they run the information network working best described as spys. They are the ones that perfected becoming human, to sneak into societies and spread and learn information. They are the only clan that had ever interacted with other races directly, but it was only for the sake of information and they always appeared human. Instead of having emotion trained out of them like Red and White Tigers Spartan ways, they are trained to completely control it, and use it. They must live and thrive in both human, Hell Cat and other races society. By the time they are considered full trained adults ( 25 ) Even their own emotions are possibly considered fake, and trust isn't something they tend to have. They must find their own food, cloth themselves, fight off enemies, and learn from everything around them. Cause unlike other tribes, they run alone, no one will ever be backing them up. They specialize in synchronizing into other societies and transformations, never holding a cat like appearance when they transform to a humanoid shape. Snow leopards work most often with Byakko, Jaguar's for Kamal's tribe, Cheetahs for Xerxes, with Leopards holding a small territory for themselves. Each small fraction under Nebi's rule owns a small bit of land in each of the others territory.
⊶Ｈｕｍａｎｓ⊷ ㄨThe humans born here are not all that special some hold capabilities as vessels for spirits. While they are actually the oldest race, they are still considered the weakest and look down upon by some because of this.They pay a price to use the powers of a spirit, equal to that of the power of the spirit. In exchange they can use their elemental powers, certain spirits are weapons that humans can control, and some have fine tuned to have ' special abilities. The stronger the power, the higher the price and the quicker you usually have to pay up. Some spirits just have terms and conditions you must follow, or you pay a costly fine of sorts. Certain human households are respected by even those races that normally look down on the average human.
⊶Ｖａｍｐｉｒｅｓ⊷ ㄨHuman like in appearance, enhanced strength, acute awareness of the body, heal quick, DO NOT SPARKLE, and neither do they fly. Their power is in the their blood, the blood it self is like a venom that would give another a vampiric nature. They can eat other Food but can not survive off it, blood is needed at minimum every three days. The venom that heals the body, it requires the oxygen, iron, calcium, and infection fighting proteins in the white blood cells. Your eyes can see through any darkness, those of the royal family are of pure line an more powerful because of it.The venom is so strong that there is no diluting it, those born as half breeds are no longer the other race by the time of adolescence. They will retain physical properties though, that are genetic, hence why some vampires have short pointed ears while others have long ears like a elf. They dull the senses of their 'prey' with special pheromones, which is the trade mark skill of a powerful vampire. After drinking their blood for a while they can see through their victims eyes while in close range. They're healing rate is astounding, something many of them use to their advantage.Vampires do age, once they reach adulthood it slows down considerably though. This is usually due to the fact that by then they have learned to control their blood thirst.
ㄨA creation of fairy and human, they lived in the mortal world cloaked by magic to hide them. However with the collision those precautions where taken down. They decided not to hide anymore in their forests, protecting the fairies that god created in that world. They are born with a natural resistance to destructive energy. Hence why they tend to lean towards the lighter side than the shadow side, tending to be healers. Holding capability of elemental control without a spiritual affiliation, but theirs is very limited and tires them without aid of an elemental. Elves tend to have an array of trade skills as well, carpenters, healers, blacksmiths, ect. You have all kinds of elves, from the tall handsome archers, to the tiny little guys, have your pick! They can have a spirit affiliation but it must be through a device of sorts, one of the many magical weapons/containers/ect developed to connect to elemental spirits.
⊶Ｗｏｌｖｅｓ⊷ ㄨThese are wolves whom have the ability to become human. They can transform into a large wolf at will, and when weakened they will loose their human form. While their early life they develop very fast as children, becoming adults at a rate a wolf should. They need to eat massive amounts of food and water to supplement their bodies constant reconstruction and regeneration level. Wolves are very loyal, a bit over protective, affectionate, and extra abilities changes per their binding to Mother Gaia or an Elemental. Those that hold a power, are bound by contract to mother Gaia, and can not disobey an order from her.
⊶Ｍｅｒｆｏｌｋ⊷ ㄨThey're voice is unmeasurable, as well in beauty, created after the merger of remaining Nymph Spirits to Humans. Over time they learned how to use their power to form human legs, but it is limited to how much energy they can constantly feed it. Usually getting their legs submerged in water will cause them transform back. Only well controlled powerful individuals can maintain their legs for more than two or three days without rest and a soaking of water energy.
Nymphs where originally only female spirits, this trait carried over in a bad way. The birthrate of merman is very low, most mermaids will come ashore and seduce a man. Usually killing him afterwards, after being solid as objects by lower life form idiots and vampires they've come to dislike all land dwellers. They have a second row of teeth they can produce that are all sharp razor's. Claws can from from their nail's and their scales can temporarily harden as a shield during those violent moments..
Four Hell Cat tribes protect the Netherworld from the dark magic of creatures and hellspawned beings. As children they are the size of savannah cats here in the human world. As teenagers to adults(25) they range from the size of a small car to a full sized truck. Hell Cat's are heavily pack oriented, and raised in a militant lifestyle. They are unaffected by miasma, and unless you have a disorder keeping you from being scared, you dont ******** with them. They can transform into humanoid form each varying in appearance, closer to animal than human in habits and ways. They can be very aggressive, possessive, over protective, only the younger generation really has personalities of their own. Most hellcat's do not have varying personalities. They are soldiers through in through, by the time they reach adulthood it is almost like a brainwashing. Hellcat's with elemental powers are very rare, and usually become back leaders.
IE: If you want to have a happy ' hellcat ' that cat better have ran away from the militant hardcore lifestyle by the time he was 16.
