Avi are the creation and chosen race of the god Shu.
They are sharp-faced humanoids with pale skin of white or blue shades and large feathers protruding from the backs of their arms. They also spout feathers from hairlines or the backs of their wrists or ankles. The Avi are vigilant watchers and tend to prefer learning by seeing than doing. In the times when Horus walked the world it was said they had full wings, but their current iteration lacks more than the hollow bones and feathers to prove such things. They have an ancestral longing for flight and feel naturally wrong living close to the ground. Their societies tend to be cliff-side and as high up as possible. They are a wise and ancient lot, living much longer than many of the other races by nature, but dying young to unnatural causes due to their weak constitution and proud tongues. Their skin tone ranges from pale greens, blues, and greys to darker shades of the same.
