The aasimar are the most common celestial peoples of the Astral Sea. As the descendants of loyal angels who fell from grace, aasimar exist at the crossroads of blind loyalty to the divine and the free will to act against their ethos, be it for power, fear, or a greater good. Most aasimar are ashamed of their disgraced lineage, and are quick to take slight against those who offend their faith and honor. Aasimar are often the forerunners of grand crusades, the first line of defense for holy grounds, and the heralds of their church in new lands. Faith is tradition among the aasimar, and even skeptics and errants often choose to serve the gods rather than be estranged from their communities.
Aasimars are on the tall side, averaging out at six and a half feet. Their skin can be any shade of blue, red, purple, or silver, but always have a chromatic sheen. In lieu of hair, most aasimar have a luminous crown of ghostly fire—their eyes glow with the same energy. While their appearance is much like the angels themselves, aasimar lack the wings of their forebears, and possess the legs and facial features of other mortal races.
