Newly arrived in Elanthia
from a home where they served as a slave race, the Aelotoi
loosely follow the direction of their rebellion leaders,
but by and large they prefer to simply enjoy their families
and explore their new home. They are so fresh from slavery
that they are not yet empowered by the ego necessary
to have a detailed political structure, with all its
inherent struggles for power.
The Aelotoi are humanoid, standing
an average of 5 to 6 feet tall. They are thin with slight
bone structure. They greatly resemble humans, except
their heads are slightly larger, their eyes are slightly
larger. Their eyes are their most distinctive facial
feature, the iris being always of dark hues (dark green,
brown or black) and having no whites at all; the pupil
of the eye is round.
Most interestingly, the Aelotoi
are winged creatures. While their wings made them valuable
for slave work on their home world, they are not strong
enough to fight the gravitational pull of Elanthia.
Thus, they are flightless. The wings fold against the
back, and are diaphanous, insect-like, and can have
varying shades of golds to silvers, greens, blues and
browns. It is often easy to tell how an Aelotoi is feeling
based on the position of his or her wings.
