Revanian Species in Aloth | World Anvil


Basic Information


Revanians share much of their anatomy with humans, often being considered a type of human or just being called humans gifted with true revanian blood from their ancestors. They are on average slightly taller than humans and have a slightly different muscle layout.

Genetics and Reproduction

Revanians has the same reproduction properties as humans, and have not been slowed down or been made less fertile by their elven blood. Revanians also has a greater survival rate when it comes to giving birth, but twins seems to be much rarer in revanians occuring at half the rate of human twins.

True Blood

When most people refer to "revanians" they do not mean the bloodlines which create the rare "true blooded" humans which this page refers to as "revanians". They mean humans who live within the borders of Revania. The true blood revanian race is an occurrence which only about 10% of the human population in Revania actually falls within. It is therefore important to differentiate between the two "types" of Revanians, as one refers to the people and another to a conditional race of humans, often categorized as subspecies of human, through very close to humans.

Growth Rate & Stages

Revanians grow at a standard pace similiar to humans, becoming adult at the age of 18.

All revanians have slightly pointed ears, but it is nothing that can be easily seen.

Common Myths and Legends

Revanians were a type of humans who bred with elves thousands of years ago, this is a known fact and many of their traits reflect that heritage. But some believe that revanians share blood with giants, making them of similar heritage to that of goliaths and firbolgs. Some believe the reason why revanians are larger than humans and often considered tougher is because of this mighty giant's blood, but nothing can be said for sure. Some take these legends to heart while others are skeptical and take them as nothing else than stories
