    Human

    Pronunciation | hyu-men
    Singular | Human (hyu-men)
    Plural | Humans (hyu-mens)

    Key Physical Traits
    • Completely humanoid in appearance.


    Customs and Culture
    Humans have an extremely diverse culture, split into what could be called Eastern and Western customs. These customs are followed by many.

    The Western customs focus on symphonic and concerto music, contact dancing and courtship; especially the classical ballroom dance, which is considered to be the staple of the elite, and painting and art that depict nude male and female figures. Those of the western culture have a larger personal space bubble than the East, preferring to only invade this during times of conflict or intimacy. The best forms of artistic and musical culture date from the age of the Renaissance.

    The Eastern customs focus on the heightening of sacred belief and elite positions. Many are very religious, in a way that the only possible connection to higher existence is believed to be through a total understanding through the gods and higher beings, themselves. Cleanliness, righteousness, and absolute respect for authority are held in the highest regard. Music is more natural, played with instruments that are inspired and crafted from nature.

    Typical Physical Features
    Hair Color Black, Brown, Blond
    Eye Color Brown, Blue, Green
    Skin Color Light, Bronze, Brown
    Skin Type Smooth, Coarse

    Discriminatory Records
    Racism: High
    The Human race are very high in racial discrimination. With a history of segregating one another by the color of their skin, they have committed atrocities against nature upon themselves. Though these times have passed, there are some who remain steadfast in their belief of "superiority". This does not apply to the entirety of the race, however; rather, only a small percentage.

    Sexism: Low
    Humans are not very sexist, though this usually differs from person to person. Due to many movements and protests, human women and men have gained the same rights.

    Isolation: Low
    Humans are very social creatures. They scour the world in search for new lands and people, meeting with many other races. Humans are unperturbed by the apprehensive feelings of danger or the unknown. They race into adventure to find anything about the world.

    Male: 140 years
    Female: 160 years

    Total: 2.4 Billion
      Male: 47%

    Linzin

    Pronunciation | leen-zine
    Singular | Linzin (leen-zine)
    Plural | Linzins (leen-zines)

    Key Physical Traits


    Customs and Culture
    The Linzin are a very diverse group of people in terms of settlement. While the majority are nomadic, many often live in warmer climates. Whenever this climate becomes cold, or the winter arrives; they leave to escape the chill. The Linzin culture holds familial ties above all else, believing that those who are in a family are to be considered the most important of any personal ties.

    While very isolated from the world, the Linzin are not afraid of travel. Actively seeking new homes, they travel to many different locations and "test the waters", so to speak. They rarely stay in one place forever, even if they were to leave a lover or civilization behind. All of the locations that are settled into by the Linzin are marked by the Linzin's scent; which gives the word to all other predators and animals in the area to stay away from their territory.

    They are amorous lovers. Often, you will not see one of the Linzin with only one spouse or mate. This derives from their very potent mating seasons, in which they are at the height of fertility. Both men and women are very sexually active during this period, with there even being cases of the Linzin to participate in orgies during these times.

    All of the race's music are pivotal in their society, with many of the songs being odes to their fallen ancestors. During the ancient times of slavery and hardship, the Linzin elders created songs to express themselves. These songs carried the hardship and sadness of all of the people, but were there to leave hope for the future.

    Typical Physical Features
    Hair Color Black, Brown
    Eye Color Brown, Blue
    Skin Color Apricot, Light
    Skin Type Smooth, Coarse

    Discriminatory Records
    Racism: Low
    The Linzin are very non-racist and open toward others. Though they are wary of other people, they are not very hostile toward them.

    Sexism: Medium
    Those of the Linzin culture are not sexist in the sense that any gender mistreated, but women are incapable simply incapable of joining hunting and guarding efforts.

    Isolation: Medium
    While open, the Linzin are a bit separated from the world. While they often live in warm climates, they will choose empty settlements to take up.

    Life Expectancy & Population Rates
    Male: 152 years
    Female: 181 years

    Total: 1.2 million
      Male: 34%
      Female: 66%

    Elenor

    Pronunciation | ell-in-or
    Singular | Elenor (ell-in-or)
    Plural | Elenor (ell-in-or)

    Key Physical Traits


    Customs and Culture
    The Elenor share a segregation of culture, delineated by the Northern and Southern Elenor.

    Those who live in the Northern portion of Spera hold battle and combat in high regard. Military strength and elegance is what is expected of those who are a part of them. Though the arts are important, they take a back-burner position to battle.

    In the Southern portion, art and music are held in regard over military strength. They are the opposite of the Northern Elenor, who practice the harsh training of young boys to be in the military as archers and swordsmen. They are usually much more peaceful than their Northern brethren.

    Due to their lack of women, the Elenor tend to preserve all female children at birth. This means keeping them indoors, fed, and - at times of further unbalance in gender population, sexual slavery to produce children. Using runes, these children always end up as female. The number of female children are always kept controlled meticulously, so that the population does not exceed or descend beyond its current.

    Typical Physical Features
    Hair Color Black, Brown, Blond
    Eye Color Brown, Golden
    Skin Color Apricot, Reddish
    Skin Type Smooth

    Discriminatory Records
    Racism: High
    Due to their sophisticated and aristocratic society, the Elenor have over time developed a large ego for their race. The people of their race are very discriminating against others of different races.

    Sexism: Low
    The Elenor people are not very sexist. The women of their race are treated as equally as the men.

    Isolation: High
    The Elenor people are very much segregated from the mainstream world. Living in deep, forested areas protected heavily by magic, they do not often seek out others of different racial backgrounds. This, culminated by their very stereotypical view of others, can make those who follow the tradition of the Elenor rather unpleasant to be around.

    Life Expectancy & Population Rates
    Male: 89%
    Female: 21%

    Total: 19.8 Million
      Male: 342 years

    Singular | Ul'Torin (ool-tor-in)
    Plural | Ul'Tori (ool-tor-eye)

    Key Physical Traits


    Customs and Culture
    The Ul'Torin are a race of female-dominated warriors. They thrive on a strong military state, but take a neutral stance in war. Their armies do not serve the purpose of expanding their lands; rather, they dedicate this woman power to protecting the male population of their race. Due to a terrible disease that plagued the lands - with its bizarre effects attacking the X-Chromosome of women, the male population has steadily dwindled. Now, only a handful of Ul'Torin are male.

    The Ul'Torin uphold art and civilization in high regard. The art structure of the race reflects on happier times, where men and women coexisted in harmony. Their cities are built high into the skies, where the Ul'Torin are at their most comfortable. It is said that the Ul'Torin are the descendants of Valkyrie.

    The Ul'Torin do not consider themselves to be a very large race, in terms of sheer numbers. Do to their very underwhelming population, they take a neutral stance in the topics of other races. However, they are very uneasy about breeding with other races; as they do not wish to dilute their bloodline.

    Sexism: Medium
    Men are not equal in their race. Due to there being around only 125,000 men, all males are kept separate from mainstream society. They are fed, clothed, and given fervent protection; so as to protect their numbers. Magic is expressly prohibited from use by males in the Ul'Torin-heavy locations.

    Isolation: High
    The Ul'Torin, due to their lack of men, wish to merely stay alone. They live in places far off of the coasts of other islands. Not many have found Ul'Torin land, and even fewer have ever laid eyes on a male.
