(As adapted from an old D&D campaign)
Protokeros, or The Ancients, as many of the world’s races now know them, are among the oldest surviving and most mysterious races in the world. It is believed that at the dawn of time, the first Protokeros were greater spirits, created in the image of their gods; Thyra, The Goddess of Life and Power, and Verum, The God of Death and the Arcane are the most prominent. The Protokeros were Stewards of the world, charged with maintaining balance and protection of all life forms on it.
The Protokeros believe that the stars themselves are their final resting place. Thyra shapes the lives of each Protokeros, and has been said to grant blessings of great power to defeat any foe or hardship in order for the Protokeros to prosper. Verum is the spirit that guards over the secrets of the Arcane, and when a Protokeros dies, he guides their spirit to the stars.
