Alanians : Version #16
Alanians are humans capable of channeling their magic on an animal form.
Alanians are like any humans, not changing on appearance.
In animal form, they can be any kind of animal, even a mix of different animals, in any possible color, including unnatural ones. It’s very rare for an Alanian to be able to choose or change their animal form, being even rarer to be able to have more than one animal form. Some say it’s possible to change your animal form if you have changed drastically enough, but there’s no proof of that.
Origin and Myths Hide
It’s said that the first species created by Alarya (in some places called Alana) were Alanians. Usual humans, that aren’t Alanians, are considered to have lost this power. Alanians are more common than usual humans.
History and Society Hide
Alanians, like usual humans and faeries, usually get well with any other species, welcoming them to their cities. It’s hard to see a settlement with only alanians. Rather than have a history and society of their own, they have incorporated themselves in other species' and place’s history and society.
Biology and Abilities Hide
- Animal form
The only way to be an alanian is to be born as one. It seems to be hereditary, including the animal form. It’s common for the same animal form run in a family.
Alanians can be killed by anything a human can.
Alanians and Jalarians don’t seem so different, with some people arguing that they have the same origin. Some may call Alanians the socially acceptable version of Jalarians.
- In the five kingdoms, all leaders are alanians, as it’s one of the requisites to be able to assume as king or queen.
