Uniborns have been around since antiquity, they are very seldom seen by any other race, leading some races to believe that uniborns are nothing but a myth. Uniborns don't have just ONE history, for they life in small herds each with their own variations of a bigger culture, making their history different per herd. The most common traits in these subcultures include the practice of rituals for deities, which they thank for their magic, and wearing fur as a Vestments, they believe that not wearing fur will lead to misfortune.


Uniborns live under a very simple society, the uniborns with the strongest magic are respected the most, often taking the place of herd leaders, uniborn leaders almost never give up leadership on their own accord, and participate in magic duels for leadership. These often lead to injuries or even death.

Uniborn herds toll often around 300 uniborns, but this number can vary mildly.

Uniborns rarely mingle with other races, they seclude themselves to their herds in their environments, and live in harmony with the surrounding nature.

Uniborn Names[edit]

Uniborn names often reference mountains, rivers, forests, or constellations, but in some cases uniborns are named after the deities their parents worship, Uniborns do not have feminine or masculine names, for example both a male or female uniborn can be named Andromeda.
