Races (revealed):

Humans – the humans.

Kovus – A mountain dwelling race with human-like features. Kovus’s have plates covering their head instead of hairs, along with slender shovel like hands allowing them to dig into the earth. They also have powerful legs that can propel them quickly whether it be for hunting prey or escaping predators.

Gverils – A race with very similar features to humans. The only way to tell them apart is their metallic arm, and the single horn protruding from their forehead. Gverils were a bloodthirsty warring race at one point in history, but have adapted with the changing world.

Aleiths – The nomads of the plains and forests. The Aleiths are born with animalistic features depending on which clan they are from. Such as tails, ears, feathers, claws, long tongues, or in some cases even scales. Although they have adapted as the Gverils did, many ancient clans still keep to their plains and forests—far away from humans.

Derzuls – They aquatic humanoids who spend most of their lives in the water. Their skin is covered in a thin mucus membrane that helps them retain water, allowing them to come out on land for long periods of time. Upon drying up, they become immobilized unless given water. Due to being an aquatic race, they have gills for breathing underwater and are very sensitive to light. Derzuls also have webbed hands and feet, along with a fish-like tail to help propel them when in the water.

Mages:

The world is not fair, and some mages are born with a greater capacity for mana than others. These who are gifted with mana upon birth are called mages, and are capable of performing miraculous feats. Powerful mages are in extremely high demand around the world.

A Mage’s power usually manifest around their teens.

5 Ranks of Mages:

Although ranked, mages can ascend past their ranks and be classified differently. While some mages stagnate at certain levels of abilities, many work hard to attain the highest ranks and privileges along with it.

Mahj – the first rank, and where the title of “Mage” comes from.
Mahjs are the lowest of the ranks, and one is automatically classified as a Mahj once they’ve awoke to their magic. Most are weak and lack the abilities of the higher tiers along with mana control. Mahjs are usually taught by a teacher until they’ve at least become a Rujal.

Rujal – the second rank and most common of magicians.
Unlike the Mahj, Rujal’s have greater power, but lacks capacity. Rujals are quite adequate at controlling their mana, and are able to use various magics. It is around this stage where nobles send their sons or daughters to the academy.

Raezil – the third rank.
Raezils are powerful magicians who can expertly command their mana, resulting in more powerful spells. It is around this stage where mages contract with elemental spirits to amplify their abilities, and borrow from Lagus.

Malgin – The fourth rank.
Malgins are experts at utilizing their mana to their utmost. Not only can they contract with many elements, becoming a Malgin means that you are one who understands your own magic to its fullest. Malgins are not limited to just using their spirits as channels, but they can also summon their spirits into the physical world as familiars, to do their biddings.

Malizur – The fifth rank and most powerful.
They are the highest order of those born with mana. Favored by the elements at birth, they are gifted with massive capabilities. Malizurs are the rarest of magicians, and are one in a thousand when it comes to mages.
Kings and queens shower them with favors, hoping to win them as allies.

Dvitus – The lost rank.
Stories recall mages of ages past who were not bound by the laws of the world. These mages were people who governed mana, using their great strength to create changes in history. With unlimited power at their disposal, Dvitus can summon the elemental lords themselves into the world to do their biddings. Shaping the world as they see fit, giving life and taking them at a whim. These mages were so feared, that they eventually became legend. Those who know of their might aspires to reclaim this lost title.

    Hello, Za1d3-sama.
    As always, thanks a lot for your hard work, your story is still as good as when it first came out!
    If I could trouble you with a little request though, could you add Character information on this page, with details about their physical appearance and such. it would be really helpful!

    Thanks.

    • Za1d3 says:

      Yea, sorry. I’m currently working on a character page as i write, but it’s taking a long time. I will try and get it out soon once… something secret… thing.

  5. Could you please add information on a couple of things I found as I was reading?

    The sword positions of his original sword skills. Korgas (c25). Phraestone and Jae (c30).

    Coiling Dragon (on wuxiaworld) has a glossary where he introduces the basic description of each character without spoiling much. It could give inspiration for the character pages, but it seems you want to be more detailed. Good luck with it!

    • Za1d3 says:

      Don’t think i’ll be adding their chapter signs here since this is more of just general information, but i did do it for the Characters page.

      and yea, i was thinking about going into detail for the characters, but figured it would detract from the story itself and spoil many of the ideas i have in mind.
