The Gob'tak Klinast
This klinast was the largest and most power-hungry
of the klinastes from the day of its inception. This
is not surprising, as this is the klinast that attracts
those of a militant or violent bent. Since Krintaur’s
breeding program was aimed at developing a private
army, it naturally favored able fighters with strong
muscles and quick reflexes. These attributes were
encouraged and strengthened through the selective
breeding and the result is that the most common natural
skills of a Half-Krolvin of this background are of
a martial nature. The members of the Gob’tak
klinast are most inclined to taking training as a
warrior or a rogue, and very occasionally a paladin.
The Gob’tak have a simple, stylized sword as
the mark of their klinast.
The Rafi'kaes Klinast
The seafaring klinast – the wanderers
and explorers. This klinast has the loosest affiliations
of all the klinastes as it is composed of those individuals
with a deep bond with the natural environment –
the icy land or the nearly freezing ocean waters. As
a result of their Krolvin blood, many of the Half-Krolvin
benefit from a partial immunity to the rigors of their
cold home – those who belong to Rafi’kaes
are the ones who enjoy this advantage to the utmost.
Since most of its members prefer to be off exploring
new shores or sailing the distant seas, this klinast
never gained much power or even a large following. The
most common training of Rafi’kaes members are
martial skills, the training of a ranger, or, very
occasionally, an elemental magic user. The Rafi’kaes
have a stylized wave as their symbol.
The Hos'tau Klinast
This klinast houses those with the inclination
to learn the magical skills. Primarily the members are
inclined toward elemental magic, but occasionally there
are some that work with more of the facets of magic
that just the elemental. Members of this klinast are
the most inclined to seek privacy and as a result they
do not have a very tight knit relationship within the
klinast. Rangers, wizards, and sorcerers (and the extremely
rare savant) are most commonly found within this klinast.
The symbol of this klinast is a starburst.
The Lar'toth Klinast
Builders, crafters and those of more
artistic temperament formed the klinast Lar’toth.
This group is the one the others turn to when new buildings
and outposts need to be built. The klinast Lar’toth
is regarded with a strange mixture of respect for their
abilities mixed with disdain for their distinctly non-violent
interests. This klinast can draw members of any profession
who feel a stronger calling for a craft than for any
other activity. This klinast is generally home to those
of the Half-Krolvin with the most native intelligence.
The symbol of the Lar’toth klinast is a square
enclosed by a circle, with each corner of the square
meeting the circumference of the circle.
The Swu'lin Klinast
Swu’lin klinast is the smallest
of the Half-Krolvin klinastes. It is comprised of those
who feel drawn to helping others or who have a spiritual
calling of some sort. Most commonly the spiritual influences
are either martial or nature-devoted. Empaths, clerics,
monks and the occasional paladin, ranger or bard can
claim allegiance to the Swu’lin klinast. This
klinast’s symbol is a stylized leaf.
