So far we’ve talked about the duta races of The Trailokya Trilogy, as well as humans and danava. Then, we moved onto the races with whom humanity shares their universe (Samsara). First up was the Cetians, the Ikyls and Oreiades, Boarwellum, Hyadeans, Vetehinen, Aurai, Els, Drago, the Grails, and Nagas. What interesting race do I have in store for you this time?
Aghartians. A race of souls, humanoid in build, but taller, like duta, with pale blue skin and platinum hair.
Aghart. The home planet of the Aghartians.
Aghartians are rumored to be the founders of the United Watcher Orders of Samsara (UWOS), even though they are one of the many soul races of Samsara. Their long history began before Earth had evolved humans into a culturally similar group that dominated their planet. The reason behind their being labeled the founders is that they were one of the first races to join the order. Their nature tends to lend itself to the political, and thus they often find themselves in positions of leadership. Their leadership style can appear aloof, indicating they are not comfortable with the mantle of lords of the order. However, they wield their influence as is necessary.
This race is anatomically a match for humans, but more lithe and tall physiologically, and, of course, their blue hue. The skin of aghartians ranges from a pale blue to a brighter almost cerulean. Their eyes match these tones, but can also be green, or teal. The hair is always a shade of gold to white blonde. This appearance is likely why they have come to be colloquially known as the Nordics.
Aghartian history has taken a trajectory comparable to that of Earth’s humans. Upon the invention of steam power, they had an extended period making use of the energy, which even lead them into space. Unlike humans, their means of power was always based on clean energy principles. They are not a race foolish enough to poison themselves for profit.
During an earlier period, Aghart caught the eye of Prince Belial. He became enamored of the people and sought to make them his, under his rule, and as a means for exacting revenge against Zion. He was nearly successful in his endeavor, creating a fallen race of minions called dolls. The prince infiltrated the hierarchy of the aghartian kingdom and caused it to crumble. It was only the greater sense of nobility that rallied them and thwarted Jahannam’s claim. This history has left many of the other members of the UWOS slightly suspicious of them, uncertain they are not still under the influence of the dark universe.
Aghart, their home planet, has the same climates as Earth, but the environment has been taken better care of. Architectural styles differ but overall execution is similar to human development as well. Due to all of the similarities these races have, it is of no wonder the aghartians champion human inclusion in the UWOS.
Aghart’s favored allies to this point are the Grails and the Cetians. Their goals for Samsara and it’s many races align perfectly. As sinister as that sounds, it is actually quite benign. As members of the UWOS, they are aware of the other worlds neighboring their own. Additionally, they are aware of the Conflict and the enemies this bred against Zion. Lastly, they are aware of their ties to Zion and are loyal to the king. It is their hope that humanity is ready to join the cause before Jahannam convinces them of the opposite.
