Extinct Races of Xaythea

Hello everyone.  I am going to give you some extinct races that are no longer a part of Xaythea as well as their lifespans.

Demon:

0-3 years:: infant

4-25 years:: child

26-35 years:: adolescent*

36-40 years:: young adult**

41+ years:: adult onward

*average time of “freeze”

**average end of the “freeze”

Demons were immortal and aged fairly normally, freezing anywhere between adolescence and young adult.  They were an evil and malicious race, said to be created by Vamdes himself and their primary gestation was 270-days.  Demons were unable to adapt like elves, who are made by Nitrix, and thus perished.

Fairies:

0-6 years:: infant

7-25 years:: child

26-70 years:: adolescent

71-500 years:: young adult

501-1,000 years:: adult

1,001-5,000 years:: elder

5,001+ years:: ancient

Fairies were immortal but slow to age. They sometimes bred with humans and elves, creating hybrids between the two races.  Their primary gestation was 100-day gestation.   They died sometime after the giants.

Giants:

0-3 years:: infant
4-10 years:: child
11-18 years:: adolescent
19-50 years:: young adult
51-450 years:: adult
451-500 years:: elder

Giants died out around the same time as Kirin, roughly 500 years before the twins were born. They grew and matured roughly like humans but few ever reached 500 years of age due to their violent nature though there were some who preferred living in solitude.  Their primary gestation was 300 days.  It is said in legends that giants were the precursor race to humans and shifters, created after the Ancient Ones.

Goblins:

0-1 years:: fresh spawn
2-3 years:: child
4-6 years:: kid
7-9 years:: adolescent
10-15 years:: young adult
16-30 years:: adult
31-40 years:: elder

Goblins were subterranean dwellers who often were at war with their cousins, the dwarves.  Sunlight was harmful to them and they tended to drag early races down into the depths of mountains to work for them, thus they often moved around outside at night for the sun was blinding.  They were exceptionally short-lived and very fast aging. Average lifespan for a goblin was around 30 to 40 years.  Their primary gestation was 90 days.  Some believe that the goblins never went extinct and are in hiding deep within the mountains.

Imp:

0-6 years:: infant
7-25 years:: child
26-70 years:: adolescent
71-500 years:: young adult
501-1,000 years:: adult
1,001-5,000 years:: elder
5,001+ years:: ancient

Cousins of the fairies, many races considered them pests and vermin.  They liked playing tricks on travelers by swooping down on their heads or weaving illusions that made them think they were lost.  However, their pranks didn’t have bad intentions and were rarely harmful.  They were tiny creatures, no bigger than a human’s hand and had green skin with elven features.  Their primary gestation was 30 days.

Kirin:

0-1 years:: newborn foal
2-4 years:: young foal
5-15 years:: adolescent
16-80 years:: young adult
81-900 years:: adult
901-1.500 years:: elder
1,501+ years:: ancient

Kirin were a cousin of the unicorn and deer-like in appearance.  Though immortal, the kirin aged fairly quickly until late adolescence.  Their growth then slowed substantially.  Their primary gestation was 220 days.  Kirin were the demonic cousins of Kirin and went extinct around the time of the giants, roughly 500 years before the twins were born.  Kirin possessed a diverse range of magical abilities including metal bending, foresight, and shaping illusions.  Kirin were hunted by some of the top predators of Xaythea but had many natural defenses such as their horns.

Faun:

0-2 years:: infant
3-10 years:: child
11-16 years:: adolescent
17-28 years:: young adult
29-150 years:: adult
151-200 years:: elder

Fauns aged much like humans do, although they matured slightly faster. Most could expect to reach 200 years.

Primary Gestation:: 270-day gestation period.

Fauns were the cousins of Satyrs and had a deep connection to music.  They generally reached an average height of 5′ and weighed an average of 130 lbs, resembling half-man and half-goat and horns on their heads. From the waist down they resembled goats and from the waist up, they resembled elves or humans.

Satyr:

0-2 years:: infant
3-10 years:: child
11-16 years:: adolescent
17-28 years:: young adult
29-150 years:: adult
151-200 years:: elder

Satyrs age much like humans do, although they mature slightly faster. Most can expect to reach 200 years.

Primary Gestation:: 270-day gestation period.

The cousins of Fauns, Satyrs were similar in many ways to their cousins though generally more wild and mischievous, highly prone to light-hearted jokes and pranks.  They had horse-like legs, horse-like ears and a horse-like tail while their upper body resembled that of an athletic human.

Nephilim

The children of angels and humans, they were tall and fair skinned with pale hair and eyes that came in an variety of colors.

0-3 years:: infant
4-12 years:: child
13-20 years:: adolescent
21-120 years:: young adult
121-550 years:: adult
550-700 years:: elder

Nephilim age roughly like a human until they reach adolescence, then their aging slows by a fair margin. Their average lifespan is 700 years.

Primary Gestation::  270-day gestation period.

Angel

0-1 years:: infant
2-10 years:: child
11-18 years:: adolescent
19-28 years:: young adult
29-229 years:: adult
230-400 years:: elder

Angels aged much like humans, though somewhat swifter and a little longer lived. Their lifespan was around 230 to 400 years. They were fair-skinned tall, and were light in hair and feather color, most often white or off-white with slight, subtle markings. An angel’s skin and eye color vary greatly, though were commonly pale. Gifted with avian wings and Nurarid magic, angels were exceptionally gifted in the element of light, though rarely may harness other elements in addition to their primary. The second most common elements are those related to light, such as fire or lightning, whereas dark abilities are rarer, and a mastery of dark magic was completely unheard of.

Primary Gestation:: 270-day gestation period.

Nursarid

They were a peaceful race who tried to stay out of conflicts and would breed with Vuthious to create Angels, specializing in healing, light and earth magicks.  They also had a special bond with Djinni.

0-3 years:: newborn
3-7 years:: child
8-20 years:: adolescent
21-500 years:: young adult
501-1,200 years:: adult
1,200-5,000 years:: elder

Nursarid matured and aged much like humans for the first few years of their lives. However, once they reached adolescence, their aging slowed drastically. Nursarid lived, on average, 5,000 years.

Primary Gestation:: 270-day gestation period.

Djinni

0-1 year:: newborn cub
2-3 years:: cub
4-15 years:: adolescent cub
16-50 years:: young adult
51-540 years:: adult
541-600 years:: elder

D’jini, or cloudcats, matured at a rate similar to lions. Their average lifespan is 600 years.

Primary Gestation:: 95-day gestation period.

Vuthious

0-1 year(s):: infant
2-12 year(s):: child
13-19 year(s):: adolescent
20-200 year(s):: young adult
201-325 year(s):: adult
326-400 year(s):: elder
401-800 year(s):: honored elder

Vuthious aged much like humans until their young adult years, when their aging slows considerably. Most do not live past four-hundred, but may with exceptional health.   They had abilities in speed and agility, as well as metal weaving and weaponsmithing and often wore armor made by captured elves and dwarves.  They also were subdivided into sky, forest and ocean kin, gaining an animal affinity at birth and can be thought of as the precursor race to shifters. As well as these traits, they also were able to create illusions rivaling those of the kitsune.

Primary Gestation:: 270-day gestation period.
