|Crystalline Psionic Council||Gxunthaar’s homeland’s monastic lifestyle, based on the idea that the shards of the moon could restore their people to greatness. Warfare and skirmishes with rival subterranean species gave way to their stealthy tactics and crossbow proficiency. The need to keep a distance from races that are particularly dangerous to the Afidae such as Illithids created the fighting style that uses long-range weapons such as chain-whips, rope darts, or larger weapons such as halberds for Afidae with greater size. Although Gxunthaar considers himself a part of this group by birth, his personal belief system doesn’t follow their principles and ideologies.|
|Order of the Psion||Hidden away in secret societies scattered around the mainland, followers of the Order are rare and hard to come by. Yet somehow, new members seem to appear almost randomly. Literature can be found spread through almost all civilization, mostly of fairy tales and fiction about creatures of curious origin connecting with their ancient ancestors and tapping into untold power. If studied enough, the literature will show its true content: An Order of Afidae, a system of meditation and mysticism, a way to touch into The Psion, and sometimes slivers of hints to where the hidden monasteries might be. Gxunthaar has discovered some truth in one of these books and seeks to discover more about it while searching for some ‘Tome of Enlightenment’ for his home clan.|

Movement speed: 6m
Dreamless: Endurance or Willpower rolls made to resist supernatural sleep or charm effects are one grade easier.
Empathic: Afidae receive +20% to Insight rolls.
Psi-form: Afidae may alter their physical facade at will to appear as any humanoid they know of. Using this ability takes a full turn. The afidae may attempt to mimic a specific humanoid, but this mimic-form is never identical due to STR and/or SIZ differences, but the afidae can become a general imitation. The voice and other hard physical characteristics of the afidae remain the same. Skill rolls made to fool onlookers are only required if the onlookers have reason for actively scrutinizing an afidae in psi-form. All Afidae always revert back to their original form in death.
Mimicry: Afidae can quickly pick up a smattering of language or dialect upon observation. Even if an Afidae does not know a language, the Afidae may substitute communication with a Linguistics check. The Afidae receives a +4 racial bonus to Linguistics when used in mimicry and can automatically speak in very basic layman’s terms with an unfamiliar language upon observing the language being spoken. Subsequent Linguistics checks may allow the Afidae to speak the language more fluently.
