Whereas the Aasimars bear a Celestial Ancestor, the Archaasimars ARE the Celestials, born into mortal bloodlines.

Physical Description[edit]

Archaasimars appear much like their mortal parents, but their eyes and blood always glow of some metallic sheen, they are immensely tall, and their bones are far denser than typical of their race. They always appear youthful, regardless of their true age, and they bear an unusually comely appearance.


Archaasimars bear no society themselves because they are far more rare than even the Aasimars. They tend to inhabit the society of their parent races, and although they are good, they keep their distance from most, as they bear a great hatred of the evil in the societies in which they are present.


Archaasimars get along best with Aasimars and members of their Parent Races. How they relate to other races is unique to each Archaasimar.

Alignment and Religion[edit]

Archaasimars are Always Good, and few devote themselves to Religion, as they are inclined to the essence of good itself.


Archaasimars often become adventurers, as a way to grow their holy power and to find ways to right the wrongs of the world and beyond.
