Aasimar are beings inundated with divine, extraplanar energies. Mortals who witnessed the death of the goddess Srasama have continually reincarnated in the following centuries as aasimar, as if a sliver of Srasama’s divine spark has granted them a semblance of immortality. Other aasimar, known as “daevas,” claim they are the temporal incarnations of celestial beings. Aasimar heritage can hide for generations, only to appear suddenly in the child of normal human parents.
Aasimar are prevalent in Crisillyir, and the Clergy is especially dedicated to inducting these innately holy beings. They are widely regarded as the eyes of the Clergy and perhaps even the gods themselves. It for these reasons that many beings mistrust them, especially the atheistic tieflings of Danor. Aasimar are not always good aligned—and a few aren’t even religious—but these are natural tendencies for them. Wherever they go, aasimar find that they attract a lot of attention from everyday people—particularly the well-meaning, needy, and greedy. Evil creatures and undead innately despise aasimar, and will often go out of their way to strike them down.
Aasimar look mostly human or elven except for some minor physical traits that reveal their unusual heritage. Typical aasimar features include lustrous flesh, metallic hair, eyes without pupils, and shining auras.
