Aezrials

Aezrials are an ancient civilization of incredible Magykal properties. They have a body comprised of ethereal fumes and hover inches above ground instead of walking. Their skin is usually of a purple hue but can range from dark red to blue. They wear their hair long and intricately style it in beautiful braids filled with gems, trinkets and other miscellaneous objects of beauty. Native to the Netherworld, most Aezrials are beings who managed to squeeze through a dimensional rip, leaving their strange and distorted world to inhabit the mortal realm of Phantasmagoria. They were the first to show and teach Magyk to the mortals of the world five thousand years ago and continue their practice. They inhabit the forests of Zona, along with the Dryodals and the Lupinotes, they follow a way of life dedicated to peace and knowledge. Although many do practice Magyk for the art of war and even some, destruction, they mainly seek the thrill of understanding, and the increase in intellectual properties.

Their hight averages up to the tallest in the kingdom, second only to the Calexions. They usually bear many scars given to them by battles fought in private tournaments and gladiatorial fights. To die by a mans sword is usually one of their ultimate goals. Though those whom practice the art of Magyk and grow to be Sages and Magi usually seek a peaceful death somewhere where they can be tranquil and not bothered.
