A race of powerful human-like creatures that can change their physical appearance at will. Many years ago, most were driven by men from the Shieldlands. They were formerly a druidic class, guardians of the rituals for the Giants that once ruled the Shieldlands. However, once the Giants fled, centuries of persecution followed that forced those that remained to hide and assimilate amongst settlers disguised as humans. They age slower than humans, living for up to five hundred years, meaning they often live a nomadic and solitary existence for fear of exposure. In recent times, few have presented a threat, but historical prejudice against them runs deep because they deceive by their appearance. [1]
