With few exceptions, each of the mortal races of Lusternia carry a shard of divinity in them, having descended from the Elder Gods. During the Elder Wars, rather than be consumed by the Soulless Gods, several Elder Gods splintered their bodies and souls. These fragments became the mortal races. Though not all Elder Gods chose this path nor all mortal races came to be in this manner, it remains true that all Lusternians believe that within each of them is contained the fragment of a god. Thus it is said that the god-fragment within can potentially evolve through the cycles of birth and rebirth until perfection is achieved and the fragment is made whole, becoming a divine in its own right. Only once a mortal passes through the Portal of Fate is this potential unlocked.

Non-playable Races

Non-playable Races are races of mortal shards splintered from an Elder God that are not playable at the moment. This is largely an out-of-character category (in-character they're just other folks). The membership in also may change in time: gnomes and finks weren't playable for a long time.

CHRONICLER SPECULATION: perhaps they are incompatible with the Portal of Fate.
