peaceful, angelic beings that are known to heal both creatures and humans alike with their magic, Aurami live in Sanctuaries build upon floating islands high in the sky. They value research, knowledge and collections of
valuable items almost as much as their
passion for creation and use of
magic for healing others.
what are aurami ?
Living tucked away in the quiescent lands of Averia is a species of creatures known as Lumare. They are peaceful beings that reside in the beautiful remains of an angelic civilization. One of their main beliefs is to live at one with nature, and never take more than what is needed.
. . .
Each Lumare is an incarnation of a mythical creature in Averia including flowers, plants, animals, insects and other sentient beings. This Incarnation occurs when a creature has completed an act of true kindness, showing love and compassion for another. After the next Fairy Moon, their spirit will be rewarded for its kindness by transforming into a young Lumare.
The Settlement is the area of each Sanctuary that houses the majority of Aurami and other life forms. This area generally surrounds the Cathedral, and takes up the most space in each Sanctuary. Things that can be found in the settlements include spa-like temples, natural rivers and ponds, small forested areas, grand gardens and Aurami cottages.
Aurami cottages tend to be small and cozy, focused mostly on comfort and practicality. These little cottages can be built high in trees, backed against mountains or anywhere an Aurami would like! Small shops can be found in the Settlement area selling a wide range of luxury items. Crystals are used as currency by Aurami, along with negotiated trades.
kindness is always rewarded
When the spirit of a creature residing in Averia completes a deed of pure kindness for another, their soul is rewarded. This act of kindness can be big or small, as some Lumare are incarnations of mythical plants and flowers. When their deed is complete, they are to be rewarded the night of the following Fairy Moon. Their spirit will transform along with their physical body into that of a young Lumare, allowing them to spread more kindness throughout the world.
glistening lavender moon
Every few months, Averia's largest moon Liette will phase through a solar cloud. These clouds are made of a glimmering lavender dust, believed to be that of Fairies. Liette will radiate a lavender hue, and bring about the Lumare incarnations.
Lumare love to throw flower festivals on the night of a Fairy Moon, to celebrate the good deeds of those around them and welcome all new Lumare.
A Cathedral is the Aurami grand temple, located at the center of each Sanctuary. Each Cathedral stores all of the most precious items within the Sanctuary. This includes hand carved altars, ancient sacred texts and massive libraries containing thousands of years worth of knowledge. A crystal is suspended in air above each Cathedral, providing a protective energy field around each Sanctuary.
The Cathedral is also home to each Sanctuary's Priestess, along with many other highly ranked Aurami. Grand events such as tea parties, balls and musical recitals are also hosted here. To enter any Cathedral, an Aurami must have a specially made outfit referred to as a Holy Garment. As most of the Cathedrals were constructed thousands of years ago during the Celestial Era, they are maintained in pristine condition and considered sacred.
