Aasimars are humans with a significant amount of celestial blood in their ancestry. While not always benevolent, aasimars are more inclined toward acts of kindness rather than evil, and they gravitate toward faiths or organizations associated with celestials. Aasimar heritage can lie dormant for generations, only to appear suddenly in the child of two apparently human parents. Most societies interpret aasimar births as good omens, though it must be acknowledged that some aasimars take advantage of their association with good will, brutally subverting the expectations of others with acts of terrifying cruelty or abject venality. "It's always the one you least suspect" is the axiom these evil aasimars live by, and they often lead double lives as upstanding citizens or false heroes, keeping their corruption well hidden. Thankfully, these few are the exception and not the rule.

History

Aasimars were created by the Celestials (Ancient Angels and Gods) shortly after the birth of the first Tieflings. Fearing the newly born tieflings would one day fulfill their task of inhertiting hell if their Sire's were to fall in battle, Celestials embued a chosen few with celestial blood.

Personality

Aasimars are often good natured and heroic creatures, who are often known to put the needs of others far above the needs of their own.

Anatomy

Aasimars are fair creatures, often born with blue or gold celectial markings on their body. They have golden eyes known to glow in the darkness. their ears are slightly pointed. Aasimars are born with white feathered wings, and can fly with varying degrees of success in combat.

Mount Celestia

Home to the Celestials, the gateway to the Plane of Mount Celestia is located at the peak of the tallest mountain in the Material Plane. Though many have attempted to reach the peak of this Mountain, it is said that only the heroic and pure of heart may enter the gates of Mount Celestia. Mount Celestia is seperated into seven sections. (Although they have yet to be offically written these sections are intended to loosley reflect various ancient mythical froms of good alligned-afterlifes Greek, Roman, Celtic, Nordic, egytptian, biblical ect.)

Aasimar Trivia

  • while most monsters would still consider Aasimars pinkies, Aasimars are actually classified as Outsiders (Much like Tieflings).
  • Aasimars only age from infancy to adulthood once they reach adulthood at roughly age 15, their aging is slowed to the point of being practically immortal, only significantly aging every couple decades or centuries. Because no Aasimars have ever lived and aged long enough to die naturally no one really knows if they even CAN die naturally. Unfortunately, because of this it's statistically shown that every Aasimar is tragically killed eventually, usually through accident, natural disasters, combat, suicide or murder. Interestingly, unlike other Celestials, an aasimar is a mortal creature and can therefore be resurrected as an undead like any other mortal creature.
  • While Aasimars are infact genetically the children of their parents, their appearence is the composite of their family and the celestial who blessed them.
  • Aasimars can procreate with other Aasimars. however, their children do not take on their celestial traits and instead take on the dominant traits of their non-celestial bloodline. this is because Aasimars are not born genetically, they are born entirely through blessing an unborn champion.
