Sulerium is a located in the north east of the outer ring. It is a very mountainous terrain. The temperature is cold on top of the mountains.
Personality: Seraphs have a feeling that they are better than all other humanoids or demi-humans of the world. They see themselves as the perfect race and that they are better than everyone else. Seraphs consider only elves as almost equals.
Physical Description:Seraphs are a race of winged humanoids who live in the northern mountains. They are a very noble race. Their voices and appearances are very fair and angelic. But they are a very worthy foe.
They stand to the same height as a human. The wingspan of a Seraph is 7 to 8 ft. The wings are usually colored white to a light yellow. Due to the fact that they fly they have hollow bones. They have hair that ranges from fiery red to a dull bleached blond. They are a race of very slender folks but they are still very strong. They usually both male and females wear there hair long.
Due to the energy it takes for flight the character to has to eat as much as three times a human his or her size. Their diets consist of breads, fruits and vegetables. They do eat meat but not to the extent that other races do.
They make their home on top of the highest mountains. They build large towers where the only entrances are at the top of the tower. The Seraphs live in large communities all in the tower it is rare for a seraph not to live in one of the towers except for fallen seraphs. The towers are so tall that they are above the clouds. Travelers to there towers are very rare. The seraphs are a very private people.
The fallen seraphs are seraphs who have been punished by having their wings removed. Their are two types of fallen seraphs. One is the partial fallen. Since the Seraphs do not want jails or prisons in there towers they found away to rid themselves of unwanted criminals. If they want to banish a criminal for just a while they will remove some of the seraph's feathers from his wings. When the seraph has to walk around on earth like a more primitive race for awhile (until the wings grow back) they are then welcomed back into the community. The full fallen seraphs are seraphs who have committed a crime so heinous that they are banded from the tower for life. In this case the seraph's wings are cut off with an axe. The wings never grow back. This is a fate worse then dying in Seraphic culture. Many full fallen seraphs commit suicide for death is better then walking with the primitive races until death.
Relations: Seraphs are very friendly with elves. They do however still look down upon the elves because the elves cannot fly and are considered dirty land dwellers. Seraphs have a great hate for the dwarves and orcs. The seraphs want these dirt diggers to leave their mountains. Seraphs look down upon all other races but they do not hate them.
Alignment: Seraphs are true neutral. They just want to be left alone and to have no one bother them in their great towers in the sky.
Lands Seraphs live in the highest mountains in Sulerium. They build huge towers on the top of the mountains, the only way to enter these towers are through the top. So if you cannot fly you cannot enter the towers.
Religion Seraphs do not believe in gods. To believe in gods is to believe that there is someone betters then yourself. Since Seraphs believe no one is better, then them they do not believe in gods.
Language The Seraphs' language is a very delicate language. It sounds almost like the chirping of a songbird such as a canary.
Adventurers Seraphs are mainly mages and will adventure to pursue their knowledge of magic.
The Seraphs do not believe in gods. They consider themselves to be the highest form of life in the world. They instead believe in the science of magic. Seraph clerics choose two domains and don't receive the power to turn or rebuke undead.
Since these clerics do not have any deity they do not have any restrictions to follow or duties to do. They are considered to be wizards who can wear armor and whose spells are not as powerful.
The Seraphs are ruled by The Council of Mages. The Council of Mages consists of 8 mages. Mages are any people who devote their lives to the pursuit of magic. This includes sorcerers, wizards, clerics and druids. Sorcerers and wizards make up the largest bulk of members with clerics not all that far behind. Druids are kind of rare for the council.
The 8 mages are each represented by a color. The wizards go by their name and then their color. An example would be Liscus the White. The eight colors of the council are: red, yellow, blue, orange, green, violet, black and, white. These mages are each Head Master of a high academy of magic.
The academies started out as places where wizards went to learn magic and spells. But as time when on the academies started to become political parties. This is when mages who did not need to study to get magic started to join the academies. After some time more and more academies began to arrive. The largest and most important seven academies became what the government was based off of. Each school send their Head Master as their representative and these representatives run the whole Seraphic Domain.
