More information...



Most Alteaevantae tend to be withdrawn due to their empathic abilities. They flock to areas with crowds, due to their high levels of empathy they feel the emotions of those around them. However, their own weaker emotions are often overrun.

They rarely allow others into their homes, for such places are sanctuaries for them and don't like to risk having others imprint their homes with emotional resonances. Alteaevantae are attuned to emotional resonances left in locations and can discern powerful emotions and feelings.

Once an Alteaevantae has decided that someone is a friend they will never abandon them no matter what happens, or what those friends become.

Physical Description[edit]

Their height ranges from 6' 2" to 8' tall, with females often being slightly shorter. Alteaevantae are about half as light as they look, being partly composed of energies. Their skin color is the normal hue for a member of their parent race. Alteaevantaes eyes also change with age. The iris will slowly begin to gain a film much like that of oil on water and become cat-like after puberty.

The corneas of their eyes are black. These eye's are integral in perceiving emotional resonances in an area, a skill they develop with age and experience. However, such a skill is not without its dangers, as an Alteaevantaes must take care not to get wrapped up in the senses of others long past.

Their hair, often worn long, is white at birth and begins to change colors depending on the emotions of those around them after puberty. Finger and toenails are black. At puberty, these nails, much tougher than most nails, can be protracted and retracted.

They stop aging at adulthood and eternally if they are not killed or decide to disappear from the Material Plane. Some Alteaevantae will cease to exist or go back to where they came from if the emotions of others finally overwhelm them.

While in vaporous form, they appear as a vaguely humanoid cloud or ghost.


They are usually wary of everyone and will avoid those with extreme emotions. Once an alteaevantae has been given a chance to see the intentions of others, they will lend their trust. Alteaevantae are extremely loyal and would die for those they trust.


Alteaevantae usually range in alignment, depending on individual goals and means, but are typically chaotic neutral.


Alteaevantae have no lands of their own. They are found in cities, where they are able to surround themselves with other creatures.


Alteaevantae have no set religion, often revering the raw primal energy of nature. Those that do choose deities tend to follow Somata, the goddess of the wind and climate.


Alteaevantae speak Common and Auran. They can however learn other languages.
