The Accursed Ones
- This is a sister race to the Aven. Both races evolved after the creation of the walls. Both Aven and Strix were known in all four quadrants even before the creation of the elevators, this is because they are the only two races which are powerful enough flying capabilities and the drive to go see the world around them.
- The Strix are an extremely challenged race in the world. Although not explicitly evil, many of their kind have been driven to the depths of insanity. Due to this maltreatment of their kind by the general populace around them most Strix live in areas which are extremely secluded or entirely untraveled.
- Strix are extremely powerful, but fare better in warmer climates than their Aven cousins do. Most dwell in the desert area, with a few residing in the volcanic plane and forest area. Almost no Strix are allowed to reside within the isles however, as it is seen to disturb the public peace for too long. This has sparked one of the rebellions of the isle quadrant.
- Due to their almost incessant history of provocation and persecution there is no strix who is not bothered by psychological issues in some way. This has caused some to turn against the world around them, some to turn against themselves, and even more have been driven to insanity by the treatment happening everyday around them.
- The only way to survive as a Strix in this world is to convince those around them that they are intelligent and capable of completing the tasks which may be given to them.
