Decenis

Strange.jpg

Decenis, everything the was wrong with human before the fall. They embody the original sins of wrath, lust, gluttony, envy, greed, pride and sloth. All of the immoral behaviors that were (and still are) present in the races of the world have become pure. After being exiled in the Frozen Wastes, their hearts have grown cold and their minds have broken.

Appearance: Decenis are a race that appear to be human at a glance. The traits that set them apart from the “typical” humans are a black/blue mark around their neck, much like the marks left after an execution by the hangman’s noose.. Decenis are also always characterized by their masks. As a race of the frozen wastes, they haven’t lived a life of leisure, generally having many scars and stitches. Some even end up with a loss of limbs or appendages.

Society: The harsh living has caused them to be a race thought dead. The environment has also caused them to be very few in number, generally sticking to nomad tribes of 20-25 at a time. Ever since the Seven Origin Exiles, the Decenis have embodied Sin and the Fault in humans, but they also embody a force that taints anything it touches, Madness. Every Decenis has 3 separate and different sides to them. One minute a sweet girl helping pack and the next, turning into a terrifying berserker killing anything in sight. It has been discovered that Decenis are all connected to the Seven Origin Exiles, seeing them in their dreams and hearing them in their heads. In an attempt to make sure they remain individuals, they carve masks and wear them as a reminder the “I am me, and you are you. You are not me and I am not you.” At birth the Decenis are peaceful but by the age of 5 they hear the voices of three of the Exiles, tainting them from childhood.

Religion: Being cynical and entirely disassociated from society, very few Decenis have a formal religion. Some may seek to slay the Seven to ease their minds and end their madness and some give into their madness and embrace that life is just a series of random events. Either way the Decenis are against formal religion and believe a person that has a free mind has no reason to listen to another.
