Physical Description[edit]

Similar in appearance to humans, Nephalem are set apart from their human companions by an eerie, unnerving air of physical perfection. They share many characteristics with the humans that their race has grown to mimic, although small vestiges of their angelic and demonic bloodlines show that they aren't quite what they seem at first glance, They are thin, lithe, typically well-muscled but lean. Their bodies border on perfect, though they may have distinguishing features that show what they really are. Such features could be red, gold, or silver eyes, a metallic sheen to their hair or tan skin, or even stunted horns that typically hide beneath their hair.


During the Soul-bound wars the angels of Aether and the Demons waged war on each other in a war of Light versus Dark until some rogue angels and demons grew sick of the eternal struggle between their people, and fled to make a new realm called Haven. They produced offspring that they called the Nephalem. These offspring found their way to many other planes, eventually finding that their powers made them very good adventurers.


Nephalem do not have their own system of social hierarchy. Often they are loners, doing their best to blend in to the towns they end up in. They do their best to use their talents to help those around them.
