Xerik

Home Roleplay Setting People of Esterin Xerik

Xerik are considered guardians of balances, perseverance, strength, and value. It is believed among Xerik scholars that the first of the Xeriks appeared in the shadows of the moon and the sun, drawn to those divine beacons of light and flame. Their appearance is a mixture of insects and humanoids. Some have significantly more insectoid features than others, such as multiple arms, an extended mandible, multiple moving eyes, wings, antenna, or hardened carapace instead of skin. Depending on the Xerik’s biology, they may either lay eggs or give birth to live offspring. It is possible for other species to marry into Xerik families, so long as the Xerik and their spouse can produce heirs. As such, Xerik pride themselves on large families and often have many children.

Among Xerik are two major branches; the N’yi and Sema. They are philosophically opposed in their behavior and recognize different origins for the species. N’yi are thought to have been born from moonlight, while the Sema from sunlight. Their philosophical differences have turned to major clan war-fare, where either side will look to get a leg up on the other.
