Birdmen

Appearence:
Similar to elves in phsique, down to the pointy ears, but don't have the same height. Average height is around 2peds.
Their bone structure is similar to a birds making flight easy, but this has a drawback of being quite weak.

Special Abilities.
Very Agile.
Can fly, but not overly long distances in a short amount of time. They can easily reach 1700ped maximum altitude.
Quite potent magic users.

Habits/Territory
They live on their own island that is suspended in the air by magic near the continent of Akdor.
This island has several towns, and one main castle where there leader, (a King lives.)
They don't normally leave the island unless of a dire emergency or they are banished.

Lifespan: Average of 150 years old.

Diet: Mainly a herbivore race they eat very little meat apart from the odd fish. They will never eat birds as they are seen to be sacred.

Other information: On the sides of the neck are gill-like airholes which they use to help breathe when flying.

Religion:
They worship a several Gods based around birds:
Shrike, (butcher birds) God of Death.
Mockingbird, God of Peace

Brief History:
Much of their history is lost through, being 'evicted' from the Pachisoth Iceplanes. There true origin has been lost, throughout time, but there a many who still think they were created by the Gods as messangers.

(Ok more to come later, once I've looked up more birds and checked my notes at home. and when I get time, end of dinner)
(Also Im sorry if anything contredicts with anything already done here.)

Well, the comment I have, is one that has been said, and will be said very often: "There are already enough races in Sorren, and they all need further developement. Further, if you're going to continue with this, you need far more detail. E.g. you say their history is lost, in that case there should be myths about their history and origin.
You say they live on a magical island, which is fine with me, but I believe we're trying to limit this kind of magical wonders a bit, we want to keep this realistic. (Although this might just be one of the Sorren wonders *makes mental note*)Also, a flying island is difficult to hide, and sometimes great flying objects scare people away, which would certainly result in militair campaign by other races, to ensure their safety.
And last, what is their relation with other races, do they avoid contact? Or do they have close relations with others?
Well, that's all for today, don't want to be too harsh on you.;)
