Generally accepted as the first people to populate Draza, the sinestre have made the Avärnos Forest their home ever since the War of Elder Kind. Tall and pale-skinned, their faces are etched like the bark of a tree and their ears are bent backwards and attached to the sides of their heads. Much of what humans know about magic is said to have come from the sinestre, who befriended them when they were newcomers to Draza. By nature, the sinestre are deeply religious and worship the collective known as Meber. Sinestre mate for life and the bond between them is so strong that they can communicate emotions with a single glance. The females of their species have two unique forms, one that is humanoid and one of a great cat. It is said because of their long lives that there are some among them who still remember the first of the humans landing on southern Draza.
