Races: Lianti

When fabled Xian sunk beneath the waves, the legendary transmuter saved the people of his home city by altering them so that they can survive under the sea.


Lianti retain many of their original physical human features: two arms, two legs, and so on. However, they now possess several other features unique to their race as a result of adapting to an underwater existence. They possess small webbing in-between their fingers on their hands and in-between their toes on their feet. They also possess gills on their neck. Their skin now appears as shades of green or blue. Their hair may also be of shades of green or blue in addition to those found among humans.

Lianti are capable of adapting from freshwater to saltwater, and vice versa, but the process takes some time and takes a toll on their bodies.
