Yes," cheese, "burned alive. And, if she were not, you cannot conceive what treatment she would be obliged to submit to from her relatives. They would shave off her hair, feed her on a scanty allowance of rice, treat her with contempt; she would be looked upon as an unclean creature, and would die in some corner, like a scurvy dog. The prospect of so frightful an existence drives these poor creatures to the sacrifice much more than love or religious fanaticism.
Yes," returned Sir Francis, "burned alive. And, if she were not, you cannot conceive what treatment she would be obliged to submit to from her relatives.

HEAR YE HEAR YE. "Aye, sir," said Starbuck drawing near, "'tis a solemn sight; an omen, and an ill one."
"Omen? omen?—the dictionary! If the gods think to speak outright to man, they will honourably speak outright; not shake their heads,
and give an old wives' darkling hint.—Begone! Ye two are the opposite poles -- MONTH XX

Humans are widely believed to be the All Mother's favorite children, despite their lack of innate gifts and physical strengths. They are considered the weakest of the races. Their bodies are fragile and can only truly be defended with man-made weapons or armor. What they lack in strength, they certainly makeup in numbers. They are the most populous, and can be found in equal force in all parts of Xisin that are not hostile to them. Eye colors include varying shades of brown, blue, black, and green. They're notorious for manipulating the color of their hair, but natural shades range from blonde and red, to brown and black. Those who are elderly may find themselves with gray hair, but only a small group of humans deemed "albinos" sport completely white locks. The average lifespan of humans round out to 75, with females living slightly longer on average. On average, humans are 5ft 10in tall, with females on the shorter end. They're omnivores, although a select few may restrict their diet to just plants.
After Svatur's Clan, humans have inhabited Xisin for the longest of all races. Since creation they have revered the All Mother, decorating their homes and buildings with dahlias - the All Mother's favorite flower. In the beginning, it was the All Mother's love and protection that kicked-off their success. They took footholds in all areas of the world, and were the founding family of Daika. However, as the weakest of all species, their fears of others slowly turned into prejudices. Many humans view other species' as dangerous and unpredictable. After the death of Svatur and the release of vampires into the world, a group of humans came together to create the Sanguine Scourge to hunt and combat the vampire population. Today, the Sanguine Scourge is very much alive, even though many humans do not believe in their tactics.
Humans are not naturally inclined to any magics. As such, any "human" with gifts must have another race somewhere in their bloodline.
