The Vansharis are a race of evolved, anthropomorphic animals roaming the lands of Arkelon. They are related closely to the Jaanvaris, who are, relatively speaking, their “cousins''. However, the Vansharis have created a completely different society, and are notably closer to the Skarvalds Humans instead in terms of culture. The Vansharis are mostly living in the Northern parts of the continents, even though some decide to leave their territories and explore the world south. Most of them are sedentary, but some tribes can be seen as nomads, mostly bands of hunters and trackers who need to move with their prey.
The Vansharis as a whole are all very superstitious and spiritual, leading them to be afraid of the angry spirits living in the North. Most of them also turn to shamanic practices, or wear talismans to protect themselves against it.
The Vansharis have concerns regarding technology that could potentially destroy the environment, but still make use of “green” alternatives to improve their quality of life.
The Vaanshar-Bhaa are one of the five types of Vansharis that roam the lands of Arkelon, particularly in the Northern continents. They are a subspecies of evolved, anthropomorphic animals that closely resemble bears.
They are usually — but not always — large, resilient,
They are an egalitarian society, where both men
and women have the occasion to prove themselves
and choose their path in life — be it fishing, hunting,
tracking, protecting the settlements, or simply teaching
the next generation.
Some Vaanshar-Bhaa are known to live with other
of their counterparts, acting as defenders and
protectors of their villages. A few of them even go
to the large cities in the South to have that same job.
