Katharos & Amaritian
Original closed species by NeonSR
In a galaxy far away, there once were two different, yet similar, species that coexisted together for eons. Parallel species of elemental magic, the ying-yang of nature, the balance of good and evil; the Katharos and Amaritian.
These two species bear the energy of the four elements of nature (water, air, fire, earth) and possess abilities to manipulate said elements.
Their stellar destiny is to care for the beauty of the Exoginos galaxy. Its planets, stars and moons. Its fauna and flora. Its mystic energy.
But eventually, the Amaritians evolved! They started growing demonic horns, that got bigger with each generation. The Katharos started to get scared of their new appearance, and chased them away into the shadows.
Fearing for their lives, the Amaritians started rioting, and riots led to never ending wars that lasted for thousands of years. But no one seemed to be on the winning end, no matter how hard they fought and how many died.
The governors of both species decided it would be best to live separately, and so the galaxy was divided in half, to each their own. Since then they have avoided each others' terrains. At least most have...
Katharos have cool-toned skin color, big ears and just one eye in green or blue, though individuals with white skin tend to have a turquoise eye!

Since the beginning of times, their galaxy has been separated in four regions. Each region corresponds to a different elemental faction, and only those of the corresponding element live there.
After the separation of the species, the Katharos invented a new hierarchy based on their skin color.
|Royalty||Upper Class||Lower Class||Peasants|
|Light or pastel blue skin||Dark blue or white skin||Teal or light green skin||Dark green skin|
|They rule and govern their respective faction.||They live a life full of luxury, comfort and glamour.||They make goods for their superiors.||They work as miners and farmers for their superiors.|
|They wear white robes and pearls and always go barefoot.||They wear white robes and pearls and sometimes go barefoot.||They've created their own fashion and do wear shoes.||They've adapted Amaritian fashion.|
The Katharos have stayed loyal to mother nature all those centuries. Only elemental magic; nothing else.
Each faction is allowed to use only their corresponding class of magic; otherwise, they face a 10 year long prison sentence.
The group named as “The Rebels” are those peasant (and some low class) Katharos who turned their backs on their own people.
Their reason to rebel? The extremist racist mentality of their own species. Not only upon them as peasants, but upon the Amaritians as well.
Most of them reside in forgotten and unnamed satellites at the very end of the Katharos territory, near the frontier that separates both species; while a few of the brave ones have moved into the forbidden lands.
Being so close to the Amaritians, they have adapted some of their cultural aspects, like fashion and non-elemental magic.
Amaritians have warm-toned skin color, two eyes and elf-shaped ears.
With evolution, they grew horns and their pupils turned pitch black!

Unlike with the Katharos, there is absolutely no discrimination here. Everyone is an equal and is treated fairly. Generally, big horns and rare skin colors are considered more attractive.
Fashion has become a big industry on this side of the galaxy. Everyone is rocking trendy outfits, constantly on the lookout for what’s in or out.
There are two fashion trends that have withstanded through centuries, and those are light hair and contact lenses.
But setting the good things aside, the Amaritians have a very serious issue with crime. Chaos runs in the streets, but don’t be afraid; very few get hurt. Weapons are illegal, so most of the crimes are just theft or vandalism.
The Amaritians discovered two new magic types after being marginalized: psychic and dark magic. Both relate to the spiritual world and are only accessible when a user has opened their subconscious; though dark magic is more difficult to access, as it requires a fully open consciouness.

Magic crystals contain special magic energy, and are used to restore or enhance an individual’s energy level.
One can only use a specific crystal depending on their magic specialty. Each individual develops different kinds of magic, which all differ in power levels and properties, and so can’t be fully restored with the same crystals.
