Stories have been told far and wide about the creation of the various races and beings upon the world that the Genesori created. However, of all the races, only one can trace their lineage completely and definitively to Koreel.
Sometime in the early days of the world, Koreel turned her hand to the Purposed Races. She approached her most devout followers and offered them an even greater spirit than they already possessed. The legend says that those who accepted had the strength of an additional spirit woven in with their own, most often that of an animal or element.
Koreel had studied the Purposed Races and their ways. She chose her children carefully, ensuring that each set of spirits were a good match for each other. At the end of her work, there were eight large and distinct groups of Spirit Touched, centralized in certain groups or geographic regions.
Each person touched by spirit changed. They took on the physical appearance of the essences they were touched with, but retained a humanoid form. These people changed by Koreel were known collectively as the Spirit Touched. All Animal Spirit Touched have the “Beast” Trait, and all Elemental Kin have the “Elemental” Trait.
