The deva are the remnants of a once beautiful race of mortals, who are seen as descendants of the engimatic Angel race. When war broke out between the gods and the Primordials, the deva were among the first immortals to join in that heavenly conflict. Some ancestors of the deva were felled angels whose immortality had been torn away and sent to the Material Plane. In time these beings integrated into the cultures of the world, breeding with one another to create the deva of today.

Deva are slightly taller than humans, if not slightly taller and lithe. They tend towards athletic frames and generally have pleasing and unmarred features; wounds rarely leave scars that mar an deva’s features.
Deva have an almost washed-out color to their skin, though it can range from near bone white through tanned bronze to a faded ebony. Some devas have a purplish skin with markings of white or gray about their body. They tend to have startling blue or golden eyes and a rare few have eyes that are solid orbs of silver or gold. Their hair color tends towards a golden blonde, though other bright, prismatic colors are possible.
Deva tend to favor bright colors of blue, silver or gold. They often employ silks or other fine materials into their clothing with motifs of celestial beings. Deva-crafted arms and armor have an elegant and noble appearance and are often deceptively light.
