The Kratikan used to have a kingdom of their own, and legend says they were the first civilized people's of the known world, in fact their ability to share thoughts and experiences seemed to be the reason they formed the first civilization. Their old empire dates back to the ages of myth, but by the beginning of the Golden age was reduced to an isolated small kingdom that was basically crushed under the barbarian invasions during the Silver Age. Currently what few Kratikan's survive are scattered through the world.

Nobody knows what a Zwilian is, or even that they even exist. They all are red-eyed, black-haired, and pale-skinned with prominent canines. Their origins are shrouded in mystery. Although they look -and sometimes act- like vampires, they are basically humans.

Size. Zwilians are as tall as humans if a little on the lean and small size. They are Medium sized.

Speed. Zwilian's base walking speed is 30 feet.

Darkvision. Zwilians have Dark Vision up to 30 feet.

Mark of Twilight. Zwilians always are detected as evil outsiders or ghosts despite being completely alive and of their actual alignment. This is a false positive.
