More information...


The race is a cross between many types of avians and humans, done by a crazy wizard who then released them all into the wild and they managed to survive and multiply.


The Alouettians are often found in groups that are roaming the land for a home. However there are some that wander alone, these are the ones that are most likely to join in on an adventure, as they are social creatures. Often times the Alouettians will gather together and just sit with each other because they crave company so much. They are also a highly proud race. Alouettians believe that their ancestors escape from the wizard was an act of incredible bravery and cunning. They will often brag about their ancestors. Alouettians follow a code of honor that is taught to them when they are children. Each sub-types has a slightly different code, but they all follow the basic principles; be kind to nature, respect your ancestors, be kind to those who are weak and protect your own. Alouettians also are protective of their many-colored feathers, if one ever gives their feathers to another, it is either a sign of great friendship or love. The Alouettian feathers are also greatly desired for arrows and hats, so some less fortunate Alouettians make money by selling their feathers.
