Earthen are the creation and chosen race of the god Geb.
Earthen are the stewards of the world. They were created by Geb to toil beneath the earth and insure it remains stable and to build the great pillars that keep the world intact below. Originally a mysterious and relatively forgotten race, they came to prominence later in the War in Heaven as their armies marched onto the surface world suddenly. After the war most of them retreated back into the underground but not before some of the pillars of the world were broken in their weakened status creating vast chasms and cataclysmic destruction of the surface. Many earthen hold this as an abandonment of duty and seek to rebuild the world slowly but surely one brick at a time to atone. Called "underminers" by those that hold harsh feelings for the race, they easily shrug off such insults and are known to some as the most brave of the races that wander the sands.
Earthen come in as many styles, colors, and sizes as stones though looks tend to follow familial lines. Their bodies are relatively broad and blocky, with lines of hardened chitinous stone patterned where hair might be found on other races. Their jaws are particularly broad and strong which gives them an immense bite power. Their eyes are like gemstones, reflecting a range of colors.
