The Species of Aegeroth

Aegeroth is populated by several humanoid species, blue-blooded and magically tuned to the world they inhabit.  They are familiar, both to us and each other, but are not genetically compatible, differences borne out of the variety of ways they came into being.

The Species of Aegeroth:

  • The albi possess sickly green skin and ashen hair.  Their faces are boney and their ears are tall, twisting and discoloring at the tips like dry leaves.
  • The bagkyn have dark black hair and bright white skin, both of which are crisscrossed by mycelium strands.  These strands break the skin and interrupt facial features, a process harmless to the bagkyn.  Unlike the other species of Aegeroth, they bleed red.
  • The gissu have round eyes and brown, bark-like skin, which also often incorporates various shades of red and gray.  Their skin becomes increasingly more bark-like as they age.
  • The kapi are dark haired, and their skin has a minty green complexion.  Their features are sharp, especially around the eyes and mouth, which appear almost pointed around the edges, and their hair maintains its dark hue in old age.
  • The kulu are a naturally semi-aquatic species, feeling naturally at home in water and sometimes appearing clumsy on land.  Their skin is salmon colored, and their hair has the slightest twinge of blue to it.
  • The nassu are strikingly colored due to the dyes that they apply to the light portions of their skin, with the rest of their skin naturally consisting of stripes the color of desert varnish.
  • The tajkyn are turquoise skinned and amber eyed, but their most noted feature is often their hair, which ranges from bright orange to a dark burgundy to jet black.  Their features are sunken, and their wide ears twist and discolor at the tips like dry leaves.
  • The yilgez have rocky, sharp features, matching their own account of their origins.  Their skin has a slight roughness to it, like polished stone, and comes in a variety of shades of grey.
