The Female Fomori
The Ethniu are female Fomori, part of the first iteration of the race. They were half of the first of the Fomorian races, the other being the Conand. They aren't as plentiful as the Tethra, and remain mysterious like the rest.
Anatomy & Morphology
They are anthropomorphic, with two arms, two legs and an endoskeleton. Their skin is smooth but appears to be stretched tightly over their bodies, creating folds and lines. They are completely hairless sporting bones which appear over formed, creating noticeable shapes under their skin.
Genetics and Reproduction
They have intercourse like most mammals do; however, since they're all female they have to reproduce with the Conand. They have a gestation period of about 9 months and offspring can result in either a Conand or an Ethniu. Offspring with the Tethra will always be Tethra.
Growth Rate & Stages
The Ethniu have a fast early life cycle. They reach adolescence within seven to eight years and adulthood within thirteen to fourteen. This is due to them being echoes of the Seraphim. Their old age is considered to be around the 800-year mark, at which point their skin becomes wrinkly and their forms become more hunched.
Dietary Needs and Habits
The Ethniu are magivores, consisting off of magical energies which they can extract via meat, plants or through drawing in the magic around them.
Their faces are roughly human shapes; however, they lack eyes and ears and have to two holes for a nose in the centre of their heads. They have large mouths with lengthy tongues and large bulky teeth. They lack any other notable features.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
They have no eyesight or hearing, however, they have an incredible sense of smell, taste and an electrosensory ability that allows them to detect even the slightest movements. All their other senses are on par with most mortal races.
Civilization and Culture
The Ethniu's names are based in their native language of Fomoir.
Major Language Groups and Dialects
The Ethniu are echoes of the Valkyrie, who emerged in the Void around the end of the war. The Void is a black soundless realm and so it's hard to determine the geography of the realm and where they came from; however, it is known that they call their home Fomora. Sometime during the start of the first age, at the end of The First War, the Ethniu found their way to Domus where they encountered the Tuatha, starting a continuous conflict between the races.
Interspecies Relations and Assumptions
The Ethniu tend to act aversely towards other mortal races, seeing them as alien and strange, on the other hand, other mortal races view them the same, leaving little room for any relational progress between the Ethniu and other mortal races.
