Although the Sphinxes were perfectly happy with the creation of the dwarves, the Arches felt the urge to create new life once more. The eight conferred for quite some time, debating on how the spell could be improved. They cast it once more, and were pleasantly surprised with the outcome. The new creatures were the most diverse yet. Their skin tone ranged from a deep ebony to a pale ivory; the hair and eye color spread over the entire rainbow; and even though their range of height was much wider than the goblins and dwarves, their average height was the tallest yet. Even though not all individuals could use magic, they were able to access all eight elements. Their most unfortunate trait, to the dragons, was their incredibly short lifespan. Still unwilling to destroy any of their creatures, the dragons let the new species, who called themselves humans, wander Tilandrial and went back to improving the spell.
Geographic Origin and Distribution
Humans are the most widespread sentient species in all Tilandrial, having built settlements in the hottest deserts to the coldest tundras.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Humans can touch all eight elements equally; meaning, if a human can use magic, the likelyhood of them using any one of the eight elements is equal.
Civilization and Culture
The Hunters were started by humans who saw vampires and lycanthropes as a blight on Tilandrial.
