Height Variable / Weight Variable
Languages Known Abyssal, Common, Deep Speech, Goblin, Primordial, Supernal / Theme Song Michiel van den Bos – Foregone Destruction (aka the Facing Worlds theme from Unreal Tournament)

In the final quarter-century of the War of Ten Staves, the archmagi of Seremis attempted to construct beings of pure magical energy to renew the strength of their armies as the combined forces of Perinox and Wyverngarde rose against them to meet their match. These ‘aetherians’ were powerful magi at most, living time bombs at worst. Among those created was the one now known as ‘Exalis’. It’s original designation obscured by years of wear and damage on its containment vessel, Exalis was awoken to sentience in the aftermath of Jebbediah Zoenstrahd’s escape from the abandoned mining complex at HĂ­obrynn.

1. The aetherians were constructed late in the War of Ten Staves, so they cannot be any older than when they were made.
