The Mortal Hierarchy

Recommended Posts

This document serves as a means to clarify the mortal races and entities that exist in the world in an objectively canonically tiered system.

 

Transcendents

(Soulbearing, Greater Mortal Entities)

 

Beings which once existed as descendent mortals, but whom have ascended to a higher point of existence with the use of godless magics. They hold Superior Souls, and thus are capable of great feats of magic while retaining moderate strength in most instances. As per their greater nature, the Transcendents have surpassed the Four Curses and do not suffer their effects.

 

Daeva

Wraiths

Wights

Liches

Darkstalkers

Revenants

Archons

Frost Witches

 

Descendants

(Soulbearing Mortal Races)

 

Beings whom were shaped by the Creator and borne of the Four Brothers. They bear Superior Souls and thus have minds and may cast magic of all forms at the cost of natural strength. Descendants suffer the Four Curses cast by Iblees.

 

Humans

Elves

Orcs

Dwarves

 

Immortal Heirs

(Soulbearing Immortalborn Races)

 

Beings whom exist as Descendents do, but with Immortal origin; whether by bearing Aengulic blood or being shaped directly from the hands of Daemons themselves. As races either borne of Immortal meddlings of the Descendants, or merely shaped into what they are from nothingness, they do not suffer the Four Curses, and rather likely bear their own form of plight. Immortal Hears bear Superior Souls, and therefore may cast magic and are subject to it’s effects similarly to normal mortal Descendants.

 

Mori’quessir

Kharajyr

Dragonkin


 

Undead

(Soulless Mortal Entities)

 

Beings that have died as mortal, but by some means, continue to linger on as remnants of their former selves, even after their souls departed to the Soul Stream. Undead hold soul shadows, the remnants of a soul that had passed to the Soul Stream. Soul shadows allow undead to retain pieces of their old, living psyche, permitting them to linger on as dull reflections of themselves, but without the ability to use magic, for soul shadows are not truly souls. Undead do not suffer the Four Curses, as their tangible forms are both incompatible with the afflictions, as well as that their remnant spirits do not retain the corruption of the curses that once tainted the souls that the soul shadows mimic.

 

Ghouls

Ghosts

Gravens

Apparitions

Homonculi
