The Zal'nier race (short for "Zalainier") is a secondary race appearing in Age of Warscape and Age of Warscape: Origins. They are a mob-type race that are occasionally fought in almost every region of Uloff. The race are characteristically highly-aggressive and expert fighters, though they typically have low defense. The race primarily lives on Uloff's third moon, Zal'rom, and occasionally travel down to Uloff using Gnomish technologies and portals for unknown reasons. The race is currently lead by Emperor Biasniel, living in a federation-like government. The race is not playable, but is able to be fought as enemies.

History[edit | edit source]

Ever since Uloff and its three moons were created, the Zal'nier inhabited the Zal'rom moon and thrived there since. However, some Dark Elves had constructed malfunctioning portals throughout Darkglade, which, instead of warping to Gaderon, mistakenly warped to Zal'rom. This allowed for small groups of Zal'nier to cross through the portals, and get on to Uloff. Although rarely, the Zal'nier will venture to Uloff for unknown reasons, though they are often encountered stealing or raiding.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Zal'nier are humanoid in appearance, and have a wide range of skin pigmentations (which can be any colour on the colour wheel). They typically have a height of 6 feet in males, and 5 feet in females. Zal'nier also are easily identified by tentacle-like appendages that protrude from the back (sometimes the side) of one's head, which can vary from 2-6 appendages on an individual (sometimes more than six can grow). These appendages serve as an extension to one's brain, which improves sensory, brain development, and intelligence. These also allow for them to foresee upcoming motions (such as attacks), discover where a sound is coming from, and learn much faster than any other race. These tentacles may also be stylized to resemble hair.

They can also be identified by their wide range of eye colours, small fangs used to help chew, slightly-sharper fingernails (compared to that of a Human's), pointed or regularly-shaped ears, inability to grow body hair (except eyebrows and eyelashes in both genders and facial hair in men, despite facial hair in men being extremely hard to grow and is usually genetic. In females, facial hair is impossible), and shadowing around the eyes (especially in females).

Behaviour[edit | edit source]

Most Zal'nier attempt to avoid conflict and will usually not attack first, unless provoked or needing to defend one's self. They attempt to negotiate before switching to more aggressive decisions. However, just because Zal'nier do not attack first does not mean they can't do any harm. Most Zal'nier are highly-trained in combat, and use highly thought-out tactics, their advanced-senses, and lethal attack patterns to attack an opponent.

Zal'nier rarely travel away from Zal'rom, and are hard to find on Uloff. However, those found on Uloff tend to be aggressive, seemingly in defense.

Leadership[edit | edit source]

The Zal'nier operate under an imperialistic government, and are lead by Emperor Biasniel. Biasniel is a quiet leader, and will rarely answer to anyone outside of Zal'rom, unless it is for political or urgent reasons. Biasniel deeply cares for his people, and will do anything to make sure that they are happy and safe.
