Avians are wise and gentle birdlike people. They live among the clouds, and rarely leave their own communities. There are a few younger Avians who seek out adventure in the world of men. Magical by nature, can heal their magical resources at an accelerated rate, and can compre- hend the meaning of magical devices with lore. Being birdlike, they can of course fly. As a result of flying, they have developed a resistance to lightning, but lack the ability to defend themselves adequately against a charging attacker.
