Eternus Obscurum Races...-*-...Fae
The Fae are a mystical race that are the physical manifestation of natural harmonies and the purest life magics. Their very existence depends on the flow of energies around them as they are the living, physically sentient manifestation of the said energies. They come in a number of different shapes and sizes, ranging from only a couple of inches in height to the size of several humans stacked on top of one another. Their appearance is humanoid in shape.Coalescence
Although all the Fae mounds are found in the Obscurum, the elements and energies that the Fae are illustrated from are all on Sancta Terra. They can be physical locations (such as forests, bodies of water, earth etc); Emotions and feelings (fear, love, joy, lust etc) or organic aspects (blood, flesh etc). The power that the Fae draws on is from Obscurum but prevails and resides in Sancta Terra. PrevalencesStrength:
The Spirited (The physical and metaphysical matter of which the Spirited are created from are the bare elements which the Fae are so in tune with. As a result, certain Fae may have power over The Spirited)Weakness:
Humans. (The Fae are weakened when in the presence of manmade structures and products as well as hard iron - all of which Humans wield effortlessly).
A race as abundant and diverse as the animal kind and the Fae, Demons vary greatly when it comes to their appearance and sizes, types of hides and number of appendages. They are the predators of the Obscurum and Sancta Terra, not because of malicious intent, but by nature (Although some of them can be quite cunning and malicious). Culturally, they can be quite intense and brutal, using violence and pure physical and metaphysical power as their main means to survive and thrive. They are generally the bane of all other races as they thrive on corruption. Coalescence
Their spiritual and physical manifestation is entirely of the Obscurum. However, their main means of sustenance is on Sancta Terra. Some feed on emotions and energies from the Terran races while others feed on their flesh and blood. Although most of the sustenance can be found in the Eternus Obscurum, food is much more abundant and obtainable in Sancta Terra. Some Demons cannot survive feeding off the Obscurum racesPrevalencesStrength:
Venerable. (That which is corrupted by the Demonkind cannot be used to sustain the Venerable. The 'purity' of the Venerable and the corruption of the Demonkind are directly opposing elements; much like fire and water with Demonkind being the water)Weakness:
The Fae. (Because both races are so in tune with nature, and the Fae thrive and use natural forces as their power, they may call on and in some cases assume control over a Spirited creature of their element.)
The Venerable believe themselves to the most superior of all races. Their appearance is not well documented among others due to the fact that the highest ranking and most powerful of them do not make many public appearances. It is believed however that the most organic and humanoid looking ones are the lowest ranking of the Venerable and do the bidding of the high ranking officials and individuals. By nature they all are very proud and have a very totalitarian view of government and the way the lesser races should live – theirs. For those that do not follow their ways, punishment is dealt. They generally believe all others are beneath them and do not socialize, breed or bring themselves down to their level in any way.Coalescence
The Venerable all reside in their ‘realm of light’ in the Eternus Obscurum but their connection to Sancta Terra is one of both need and convenience. They thrive and gain power when they are given absolute power over the lesser races (IE, when they are worshiped and/or followed), so they seek to control the Human race and all similar races to sustain their own. Sancta Terra is also their version of a mortal afterlife. If a lesser Venerable falls from their superior’s grace, falls dishonorably in battle or is stripped of their power in any way, their punishment is dealt on earth. They may be condemned to a mortal life (or a succession of mortal lives) among the lesser races.
Note: A fallen Venerable, if they are not condemned to live on the mortal realm, may be brought back into ascension to the higher realm by being burned alive. This is also an effective exorcism method.PrevalencesStrength:
Humans. (Humans are simple creatures that are easily swayed and, in most cases, feel compelled to believe in or worship a higher power. They believe that this ‘higher power’ guides them and even has a hand in deciding major events such as who lives and who dies. The Venerable feel that this worship and believe belongs solely to them, who’s strength and authority are absolute.)Weakness:
Demonkind. (The corruption and manipulation of demons easily taints most races within Sancta Terra. This influence prevents any race from sustaining the power of the Venerable through worship as their purity is consumed or destroyed.)
