Fal’sachi – The Winged Ones
The Fal’sachi are the winged folk. The air people. Humanoid, yet possessing great wings growing from their shoulderblades. Instead of hair; the Fal’sachi have plumage; with distinctive colours marking the different bloodlines and clans.
The feathers brush back from a humanoid face, trailing down their spine to spread outwards on their wings. Fal’sachi skin is actually very minute feathers, smooth to the touch. The Fai’sachi face is not flat; but subtly contoured; not as sharp as a bird’s ; their eyes still face front.
Fal’sachi warriors are the most excellent archers; spending their entire lives in the air the bow is their primary means of hunting. As natural fliers; the train for years to shoot; to weave; to glide; to move in a three dimensional environment around other fliers or to strafe beings on the ground. Like birds, they also possess the ability to divebomb other beings; wielding great curving swords and taloned gauntlets to great advantage. Some Fal’sachi fasten light blades to the edges of their wings; engaging a form of aerial martial art (also useful on the ground with enough room) in combat. However, these kinds of blades are a precision maneuver, Fal’sachi wings are not physically capable of parrying blows without taking damage.
As per their air element, Fal’sachi philosophy tends to be very airy and open to ideas. They are considered some of the great philosophers of the World; seeing things, as they often do in their cloud-cities; from a macroscopic perspective. Squadrons of Fal’sachi soldiers move like flocks of birds; coordinating each other through a series of air currents. Fal’sachi benders of air are particularly potent, wielding the bending currents to their advantage with their mana.
