    Known Races

    Human Types
    Humanity (open)
    The standard version of the human types, Humans are one of the largest races found in this world. Although they mainly inhabit Centora now, humans can still be found in Kinjun, Tarbis and even Zarbrew. Unable to use magic normally, these humans rely on the power of the blue stones, which they have a mysterious connection to.

    Jörniit (open)
    Sharing the same ancestors as humans, Jörniit's were forced to adapt to the harsh environment of Zarbrew and evolved into a different race. While Jörniit's are stronger physically, they do not have any known connection with magic and cannot find any stones within Zarbrew.

    Tarbian Human (open)
    An unusual human type, these humans stand on the verge of Mystical and Human by being a cross between Human and Elf. Although their features are barely noticeable, they are said to be capable of extraordinary power when united and are a force to be reckoned with.

    Dōbutsu Ningen
    Kitsune (open)
    Kitsune are a common Dōbutsu Ningen, being humanoid figures with fox traits to them. Tales of these creatures speak of their intelligence and magical abilities that grow with age and wisdom. Some see them as tricksters, nuisances that love to play with your mind, while others see them as beings representing good.

    Avian (open)
    A rare Dōbutsu Ningen, Avian's once were all humanoids with bird features, but when the Blind Time began, they faced extinction. Forced to move to a secluded home with humans, breeding with them has made almost all Avian's now humans with bird wings on their backs. While few of the original Avian's exist now, there is still a chance they may survive.

    Neko (open)
    Another common Dōbutsu Ningen, Neko's are humanoid figures featuring cat-like features to them. While they fall prey to most cat things, they are actually very intelligent and keen to things, and can be very active if they so wished. While not much is known about their culture, it is said they keep that in secrecy.

    Anthropomorphic (open)
    Also known by Anthro for short, these are the Dōbutsu Ningen seen the most by people. Being humanoid, but looking completely animal-like, Anthro's come in all sorts of variety, whether it be lion, wolf, tiger or so on and so forth.

    Elf (open)
    A common Mystical, Elves have been around as long as humans have known. Although they are better at communicating with nature, they are also very diverse in weapons and can get pretty good at what skills they need to focus on. While not usually seen outside of nature, they are said to be found in both Centora and Kinjun.

    Giant (open)
    An uncommon Mystical, Giants are one of the most diverse races in the entire world. Any giant you meet is said to be larger than most creatures you'll ever meet. Some are dumb, some are intelligent, but they all are very hard to hurt, and are said to be easy to provoke. Because of the vast diversity, Giants are said to be found anywhere in the world.

    Dragon (open)
    A rare Mystical, Dragons used to be very diverse just like the giants, but were driven near extinction and they can now mainly be found in Tarbis. Due to near extinction, some Dragons spawned off into different races, such as the Fatalis, in order to survive in the current world. Tales depict many different incarnations of dragons, some being greedy treasure lovers, some being intelligent and wise creatures, and others being savage and animal-like.

    Dwarf (open)
    The Dwarves are a short race that are generally known for their master forging behemoth mining projects. they are also known for being great warriors.

    Qlippoth (open)
    Cunning and utterly destructive, the Qlippoth are hateful beings existing since the Celestials and the creation of the world. They hate the Celestials and everything they have made, and want to end all life. Their leaders are the mysterious Twin Kings, Ahrimos the Deceiver and Nyarlos the Infinite. All Qlippoth sway under the rule of these near godlike beings, the Twin Kings mysteriously sealed away a time before even the _ _ _. Qlippoth come in thousands of shapes and sizes, but they all share a similar motif: They all have magic that allows them to adapt to their surroundings in rather unique and creative ways, and fear or mind manipulating magic.

    Vampire (open)
    These creatures of the night are six times stronger and faster than a good human athlete, have sharp fangs capable of extracting blood, wings, and most of all eyes that seem to glow in the dark. They are incapable of aging, but an uncontrollable curse hangs over them all: The blood curse. The blood curse is a side effect of vampirism: At first, the vampire is driven to insanity over blood, made into an outright animal desiring nothing more than blood. As long as they get a constant supply, they will return to normal or even be calmer than usual. Any vampire can grant the Blood Curse(And with it, Vampirism) in two flavors: Vampirism, which grants them the full gifts and force of the curse, or Spawndom, which turns them into a half-alive, half-undead creature called a Dhampir.

    Pixie (open)
    Small, short humanoid creatures with pointed ears and a low life expectancy (15-30 years at the most). Pixies often like to tinker around with technology or just plain cause trouble, some have even developed potions that cause them to increase in size for easier interactivity with humans. They're sometimes mistaken for short Elves as some of them have pointed ears.

Jörniit are on average two to three feet larger than the humans of Centora, have a dark skin and possess great physical capabilities. On the one hand, they are a spiritual people, as well as warm-hearted and always looking out for one another. On the other, they are tough survivalists, who can be unforgiving and quick to judge.

    Physical Appearance: 7'8 tall, dresses fairly scantly due to the climate being a lot warmer than she is used to, even if she's drifted for a couple years now.

    Image source.

    Personality: A hearty woman with a positive outlook on life and a can-do attitude. Atuat is brave and confident in her ability.

    Have you read and agree to the rules: I'm pretty sure we're solid.

Like Dominic she lives in one of the rooms built above the tavern.

She belongs to the side that believes the Stones should be available to everyone. Since she is from Kinjun she has a natural affinity for forests and wildlife, though she cannot get too near either one because of her deep fear of both, which is why she lives in the desert city of Fairwolf.
