Water aetherlings are descendants of Omia and are born from the primals Cyluna, Glacius, Fluvina, or Thalasson. Bearing a regal and serene composure, they remain graceful under even the greatest pressure. Shimmering manes and pearly crystals reflect their fluid magics.
Water is the element of both persistence and fluidity - ever-flowing yet ever-changing. It holds within it the life-giving beauty of change, yet beware the hidden fury of its disturbance.
Water aetherlings are creatures of introspection. Often less social than other types, they prefer to reserve their energy for only the dearest creatures in their lives, enjoying solitude, serenity, and the opportunity to dive deeply into their thoughts and experiences.
