The Astralians (also known as Seraph Ceiphians or Godborn) are a race of Thilian humanoids that are direct descendants of the Astrals. Similar to their Astral kin, they physically are the male equivalent of Ceiphians.
Just like the Astrals, they are unable to use their stomaches as a womb and can only use it to dijest food. They are capable of also growing facial hair and a muscular physique allowing them to be better identified among the Ceiphians. Just like their Astral fathers, they have a Lytvexia which they use to mate with Ceiphians and unlike the Astrals are capable of reproducing with all types of Ceiphian subtypes which in turn creates different types of Astralians who specialize in different things.
Athnian = Berserkers - These Astralians have developed stronger muscles and are capable of developing twice as much Kurgen as their other bretheren.
Egniphian = Tribals - These Astralians have stronger reflexes, allowing them to attempt feats of agility better than their other bretheren.
Mist Ceiphian = Nomads - Despite being a rare breed, these Astralians have inherited the touch senses of their mothers allowing them to feel air fluctuations and can detect anything within a 20 meter radius allowing them to predict the movements of anything within their sensing range.
Unlike Ceiphians, Astralians have taste buds on their tongue which leads them to chew their food instead of swallowing it whole, this of course leads to uncomfortable gas build ups which make them need to burp up the gasses to relieve themselves of discomfort in their bellies.
The creation of the Astralians is actually an accident. After Astralius fed on a large cluster of trees which stripped the area of vegetation, he proceeded to reforest the area by spewing his sprygin on to the fields to grow more trees. One of the Sprygin landed in a lake and fed on nothing but minerals and nutrients within the water allowing the Sprygin to live long enough to be born different, taking on more human characteristics.
The infant was found by Egnia who took the baby back to the Citadel and sought to raise it on her own, fearing what the people of Terrahypt would do and what would become of him.
When the news of the child spread among the Ceiphians, many considered him to be an abomination, a vile mutation as a result of man attempting to play god. The fear and uncertainty towards the child caused parts of Terrahypt to plunge into civil unrest, wishing for the child to be disposed of. As the child grew, he began to realize that the populace feared what they didn't understand and decided to place himself at their mercy. Moved by his selfless act, much of the chaos across Terrahypt began to cull to meager numbers before dissipating completely, allowing peace to return to Terrahypt once again.
In terms of appearance, this is the male variant of the Ceiphian race.
