The Corsairs Species in The Black Thorne Continent | World Anvil

The Corsairs

The Corsairs are a race of sea evolved people, they live in their own independent worlds within their ships, their hierarchies, kingdoms and technology.   They share the oceans with the Black Air Raiders who have managed to build ships out of metal. They are the only race to figure out black powder. It is their own technological brilliance, which they used to create ship's cannons. Because Corsairs are so attuned to the seas, it's hard to tell which came first. The Corsair's evolution or the Corsair's relationship to the sea.

This is also called the Education Phase as most Corsair cultures use this period of time to learn over anything else.     Then comes the adult phase, which is where their bones tighten, break, strength continuously until they are almost twice as thick and as dense as they were before. But then their spines have bent and their muscle mass has grown. And they are bigger than they were before.

Their started on islands but were not able to discover the world and discover they did, travelling and eventually building the world of their own in the oceans, growing in numbers in ways that their culture and even physiology. They'd once been shorter but grew ever so taller, standing up straighter but are still short.   They discovered the Yemansi and the Lovani, and most vitally their greatest partner. The Black Air Raiders. This started as a war bu then changed into a partnership for resources and knowledge. With the corsairs willingness to put their heads down and work and the Black Air Raiders artistry, they started building some of the largest and most adaptive and supportive cities in the country.
