The Gate-Stones of Lunestriel
The Cranes were among the original races that called Lunestriel their home before the arrival of the Dowmarii, which means “Portal-Born” in Ancient Lunerii. The Cranes are of the Lomarii, meaning “Lunar-Born” in Ancient Lunerii. Like the Aaenshi, they are an old race in Lunestriel.
Cranes are a race of bird-like humanoids, specifically resembling their namesakes. Tall and extremely thin, they average in height at 6’10"-7’6" feet tall and weigh a mere 80-130 pounds. Cranes have long, thin legs and their body is feathered; these feathers are typically white to dark gray in color, though shades of blue and brown are not unheard of. Their eyes are typically blue, though in the case of brown storks hazel is the typical eye color. They typically live to the ripe age of 150.
Graceful and intelligent, Cranes are witty and charming. Yet due to their frail frame, they are particularly fragile. They have a fondness for nature and enjoy the beauty of the world around them. Cranes have in recent years become fascinated with humans, whom they find wonderfully bizarre. They are easy going and fun-loving.
