Bird-Kin live in varied communities, often away from traditionally mixed civilizations but perfectly happy to mingle and interact with a few specific races instead. Their wings allow them to move long distances with great ease, and many Bird-Kin live their life in a constant state of travel, acting as messengers, or simply exploring the world.
Aetos soar high above the land on great wings and ponder the deep questions of the world. At the heart of any Aetos is a life question, which they will pursue for their time in this world, and upon answering it, usually choose to move onto whatever afterlife awaits them, contented. Questions can be concrete like, “what does it take to kill a god?” or more philosophical like, “which form of government creates the most good for its citizens and nation?” They often choose to live with the Telek or live a nomadic life searching for the answer to their question. They usually worship Tonk or Tasa.

Paruli are a small, frenetic people with bright yellow plumage. They tend to be scatterbrained, and need to constantly move. This urge to be moving is part of what drives their annual migrations. The other reason is the movement of the fire dragon Valkesh. The Warblers follow as Valkesh moves, staying in the range of the dragon’s warm influence. Because of this they are a nomadic people, with no real place to call home. They don’t mind however, being a very cheerful people, and happy to be seeing the world and staying warm.
