Aasimar Variant[edit]

Aasimar bear within their souls the light of the heavens. They are descended from humans with a touch of the power of Mount Celestia, the divine realm of many lawful good deities. Aasimar are born to serve as champions of the gods, their births hailed as blessed events. They are a people of otherworldly visages, with luminous features that reveal their celestial heritage.

An aasimar, except for one who has turned to evil, has a link to an angelic being. That being – usually a deva – provides guidance to the aasimar, though this connection functions only in dreams. As such, the guidance is not a direct command or a simple spoken word. Instead, the aasimar receives visions, prophecies, and feelings.

Physical Description[edit]

Usually having the appearance of a human, Aasimar are mortal beings with divine blood, so it is entirely possible for an Orc, Elf or Dwarf Aasimar to exist, however the mortal part only affects their physical appearance.

The characteristics that most show the divine side of an Aasimar, are the presence of Wings that come from the back, eyes with a pure glow and an extremely beautiful beauty, male Aasimar can be confused with women in some situations.

Furthermore, Aasimar have a natural aura of kindness around them, which makes them convey a calmness and gentleness to those around them.


Born from a union of a mortal and a divine being, Aasimares are representatives of the desires of the higher planes on the material plane, often destined to do acts of vision of purity, such as being healers, Paladins, or protectors and counselors of important people


Unfortunately, unlike the Tieflings who have a society, Aasimar do not have this privilege because they are extremely rare to exist, for every 100,000 there can be 1 Aasimar among them.

When two Aasimar meet, something interesting and even poetic happens, they begin to treat each other as very close brothers and try to take care of each other as much as they can, in case they are two Aasimar of opposite gender, they begin to try to protect each other as a couple.

The names of the Aasimar are given in reference to their mortal race, so you are free to choose a name.
