Races Of The Planes

The Planeborn


The celestials inhabit the Upper Planes and are champions of good and peace. Some of them are more active champions than others, and their different styles of peace mean that occassional spats flare up between celestial groups but, by and large, you can assume that when a celestial says he wants to help you he's probably telling the truth.


The eladrin inhabit the Chaotic Upper Planes of Arborea, the Beastlands, and Ysgard. They are some one of the most prolific planeborn races but most of their number are relatively weak mortals. Once they gather enough power and legend, however, they can ascend to higher forms of eladrin on par with the other celestial races. See the Planewalker article for more information.


The animal-like guardinals are the celestials devoted to good and balancing Law and Chaos. They are the most benevolent but also the most fickle: when you present an issue to a archon or an eladrin you at least know where they'll stand, but guardinals could swing either way. Most are happy to watch their flocks in the Upper Planes and keep the fiends out but a few take more active roles and are known in the Cage as high-up shakers. See the Planewalker article for more information.
