Neridae

[species]

Pronunciation: Nereid (NER-id)
Pronunciation, Plural: Neridae (NER-ih-day)
Homeworld: None
Empire: None

The Neridae are a species of small humanoids with a strong connection to nature. They often live exclusively in the forests and other natural environments and are revered as spirits of nature by some cultures


Physical description

Nereid Aeromancer Neridae have small, slight builds that are similar to a human, though much smaller. Their hair is comprised of vines and will often bloom with small flowers during the spring or summer months. All three genders have androgynous, delicate features, and can be difficult for other species to distinguish between them. Their heads and eyes are slightly larger than a human's, proportionally.


Heterochromia is common in the eyes and skin. Their irises and pupils are subtly divided into three seperate segments. The curvature of each segment bulges slightly, giving the eyes a slightly more triangular shape. Each segment is often colored differently when the Nereid has Heterochromia. Their ears are slightly pointed at the tips. Their skin ranges from very pale to very dark, but also rarely includes shades of natural greens, lighter blues, and deep reds


Relations

The Neridae have good relations with most of the galaxy, despite having relatively little contact. They are typically seen as peaceful creatures, and sightings are generally considered to be a good omen. Some cultures believe that they are spirits of nature, and are careful not to offend them. The Neridae have a reputation for ruthless violence in the face of wanton destruction of the natural environment

The Neridae have a special relationship with the Sylphen, often cohabiting the wild lands of their home planets. Many Sylphen consider the Neridae a sister species


Adventurers

While most of the Neridae are happy to live in the wild lands on their home planets, some are stricken with a wanderlust, and a few geniunely love living in populated areas. Those that do travel among the stars tend to be carefree and exuberant, rarely running into anyone willing to do them direct harm
