    Esiriae are skilled in hunting and stealth. they are dextrous, cunning, and light on their feet. the average esirie possess a few abilities:
    •A esirie is able to turn intangible, but to do do they must concentrate. They can not turn objects intangible, including clothes!

    •Esiriae are far more likely than other races to have magical potential. However, they are weak to divine energy.

    •Esiriae cannot set foot into a temple or other sacred location without suffering a sharp, burning pain as they are in the location.


    Origin
    Spoiler
    Show
    Long ago, there was the great human kingdom of Aurelain, famous for it's prominent mage and clerical colleges. The members of these colleges often worked together, exploring the land to collect artifacts and study the world and it's planes.
    It's no surprise they dug too deep.
    On an expedition to a ruined city, a group led by Hecatae Eyrecrad laid siege to a temple defended by a horde of clerics of assorted races. When they slaughtered the defenders, Hecatae and the remaining members seized a large black blade. A booming voice spoke to them.
    They were told they had slaughtered the remaining clergy of an ancient god of darkness and defiled his holy ground. For this action, the group members and their offspring were forever cursed to bear the burden of becoming an esirie. The large number of esirie created were ostracized and discriminated against, and they rose up and attempted to seize the nation for themselves. The nation fell due to this, but many esirie fled via portals. They were sloppily constructed, causing countless errors. Many ended up in the nexus because of this.

    Argentia Eyrecrad

    Gunmage of Eyrecrad Clan
    Played by C'nor
    Spoiler
    Show
    Gender: Female
    Race: Esiriae
    Age: 22
    Profession: Gunmage
    Power Level: B

    Appearance: Tall, even for an Esirae, coming in at a little over eight feet, and thin, with ashen skin, and golden eyes, Argentia is a rather striking woman, to say the least... And that's before one takes in the pair of sweeping black horns or the dark grey claws.

    She usually wears a specially-made set of leather clothes, mottled with black, grey, and dark purple, meant to offer a mix of armor and stealth.

    Personality: Argentia is... Odd. Very dedicated, but hard to read beyond that; even her clan tends to have a hard time getting a handle on her.

    She's extremely loyal, though, they know that much, or at least, she's certainly acted that way, and that paired with her skills is enough for them to keep her around.

    Abilities: Argentia's abilities are twofold; first, she can perform physical feats that ought to be impossible, such as running up a wall or reacting unnaturally fast.

    Second, she can channel magic through guns, using them as foci, with effects dependent on the weapon.

    Equipment: A long-barrreled revolver, Justice.

    Rounds fired from Justice seek their targets, until they strike something, within reason, and allow her to see through them.

    On its barrel are inscribed the following lines, the first on the left, the second on the top, the third on the right, and, finally, the last on the bottom:

    "Cursed Oathbreakers, your honor's in pawn
    And worthless the vows you have made,
    Justice shall see you where others have gone,
    Delivered to those you betrayed!"
