Humans vary from place to place and culture to culture being the most dominant race in all of Gaia. Here is a list of ethnic groups in the world of Gaia.

Asher: The asher are the main ethnic group within the central

areas of the Old Continent. They are physically characterized by a

slender constitution, well formed features and brown or gray eyes.

They can have any hair color, but darker hues, like brunette or brown,

are the most common. It could possibly be argued that they are the

native inhabitants of central Gaïa, although they are also found scattered

through other more distant lands. It is impossible to place their origins,

since from the time of the Holy Kingdoms they were the most plentiful

and extensive settlers.

Aion: The aionenses are the second most extensive ethnic group of

the central territories of Abel. They are usually slightly taller and more

stylized than the asher, but they maintain a similar athletic constitution.

Their features tend to be fine, they have light colored hair and eyes, and

a high percentage tend to be blond and blue-eyed. The popular belief

is that the aionenses are the descendants of the original settlers of the

Empire of Solomon.

Tayahar: The tayahar population mostly live in lands of Al Enneth,

although many of them have immigrated to distant lands, like Dwänholf.

Their most notable racial characteristic is the color of their skin, slightly

dark and burnished like metal. Generally their hair is of a subdued

color, being most commonly brown and black. Their eyes can have

any color, even clear tones. It is thought that they are originally from

the desert areas of Kushistan and Salazar, although is impossible to

determine their exact roots.

Zínner: Although people tend to think that the zínner population is

made up of only The Zigeuner, this ethnic group actually encompasses

many more people. Normally considered nomads, the zínner have

spread themselves throughout all of the north and central regions of

the Old Continent. Since they are usually in constant travel, it is difficult

to place their origins, but everything seems to indicate that they must

originate northeast of the Old Continent.

Ryuan: Also known as the Varja, these people settled mainly through

the eastern islands, although there is a large concentration living in

Phaion Eien Seimon as well. They are characterized by their almond

eyes, their slightly golden skin and by their hair, always black in color.

They tend to be of short stature and athletic, wiry builds. The origins

of the ryuan are in the natives of Varja, who for several thousand years

lived on the island with minimum interference from other populations.

For that reason, it is easy to affirm that they are one of the ethnic groups

that have remained more or less unchanged over the course of history.

Norne: The norne are the main inhabitants of the nordic regions,

characterized by their girth, their severe personalities, their untidy

blond or red hair and their pale skin tones. They share the same

cultural roots and there are some that call them Caste of Holst. They

are the original inhabitants of the Tip of the World, from where they

settled to other lands.

Vildian: The vildians mainly occupy the strip between the territories

of Al Enneth and the heart of the Empire. Most of them have an average

complexion and while hefty, they are not too tall. Their skin is slightly

dark, and the color of their hair has great variety, but it mostly falls

between brown and black.

Daevar: The Daevar are most unusual ethnic group of Gaïa. They

have dark skin and completely white hair, a characteristic that makes

them stand out especially to other ethnicities. They have an athletic

and stylized constitution, fine features and dark eyes. They are not very

numerous, but generally the majority are found in the central area of

the Old Continent, mainly in Togarini. The origin of the daevar is quite

enigmatic, but it is suspected that, like the aionenses, they come from

another group of settlers of the old Empire of Solomon.

Kwa: More than a single ethnic group, the kwa are the tree from

which are born more than a hundred minority groups. They stand out

for having their skin and hair completely black, a unique characteristic

in Gaïa. Usually physically they are big and robust, and are without

a doubt the tallest individuals in the world. Their origins lie in the

southeastern area of the Old Continent, from which they have spread

themselves through a multitude of countries in said territories.

Celsus: An ethnic group originally of the rainy forests of Alberia, they are individuals with pale skin, clear hair and eyes and a robust constitution. Theoretically they are descendents of the inhabitants of an old kingdom that was located in one of the lost continents, where they came from more than fifteen hundred years ago.
