Since the days when the world was young and the mortal races first began to spread across Gaia, there were forests. Stories of the primitive cultures tell of the mysterious denizens of the deep heart of the forests, the Aethossa.

The Aethossa are giant sentient walking trees formed in a semblance of man. They have a bifurcated trunk with roots providing "legs" and "feet", and their lower branches twine into two powerful arms with slender grasping branches. Above, the trunk extends bare for a distance and then splits into a multitude of graceful branches, at the base of which are the Aethoss's eyes, two large gem-like protuberances.

The native language of the Aethossa is Shosarra, a speech composed of the rustling of leaves and scraping of branches. Aethossa are excellent linguists, as they spend their many centuries of lifespan listening to the speech of other races, particularly those associated with trees such as the Danaan, Sekhmeti and Garou.

Aethossa are strong of body and of mind, their slow meditations producing powerful insights. However, they are not by any means quick, and as with many of the long-lived races, this slowness extends to their learning as well. The gem-like eyes of an Aethoss are sensitive enough to see in darkness, though any of the tree-men prefers the open air and sunlight where they can receive the nourishment they need.

In order to create an aethoss character, one of your other characters must have achieved the status of Hero.
