... or Races if you prefer.

Kinds in the Black Marble are people like you and me that come in many shapes and sizes. Kinds, and Personas to that extent, do not die. The only way a person can die is if it is not believed at all, and even then, they would fade away with tears in their eyes. Knowing that they might not come back whole.


There is an influx of races in the Black Marble that it is not a notable quality when keeping track of history. That doesn't mean someone would try and document these things, in fact, the ARK Project is doing so as we speak.

I think it is a wasteful effort to try, but I have been surprised before.

Types of Kinds

Anywho. Let's talk about the Kinds and their things. The Black Marble is ever-expanding, always birthing new kinds, for it is ever in a work in progress. Some you may be looking for would be in a different Kind, Orcs under Ogres is an example. Since there are many kinds and many more still needed accounted for, this document would only entail the list from Plast Archives.


Kinds born as animals and animal humanoids, like a dog, and a centaur. Though the latter is not called that in the Black Marble. These are the names that follow under animals and probably Human.

  • Arietian. Humanoid Sheep with the power to seek the stars and imbue sleep.

    • Cipitrians. Bulking bird people with strongly hooked bills and a sense of lawfulness.
    • Gallus. Chickens with more of a body like humans, but with the obvious feathers, beak, and the occasional arm-like wings that great for hovering.
    • Paseri. Sparrow-like humanoids with an unnerving passion for the arts
