Ga’au

Physical Description: Semi-formless masses of psychic energy who have a humanoid torso, arms, and head, and a spectral tail-like lower half which can morph into a pair of legs when they aren’t flying. The bodies of Ga’au tend to be a single color (usually white or pale blue) but often these colors change to express their mood, their faces eternally expressionless like that of a mannequin. Ga’au do not possess a sex, or if they do possess a sex it is merely superficial and meant as a form of expression.

Society: Ga’au possess very little in the form of a “society”, often preferring to remain solitary. This is compounded by their studious nature spurring them to remain on their own.

Relations: Other races often avoid association with the Ga’au if one could help it – though not wholly ‘ghosts’, their association with spirits and the undead unnerve others. Those searching for psychics know to turn to the Ga’au, but even in this case, there’s often a desire to search out other psychics in order to avoid relying on them.

Alignment and Religion: Ga’au prefer neutrality on all fronts; good, evil, law, and chaos. These are of no concern to them, however as with most races not all Ga’au are the same, and thus may be of any alignment.

Adventurers: Ga’au are often psychics, and though not all become adventurers most make an effort to expand their psychic knowledge.
