The people of Varius are split into eight distinct races. Over the last several decades, Varius has experienced a bit of a golden age, allowing for the intermingling of the races as well. It is not uncommon to find people that are descended from two or more of the races, but it is much harder to get have children across racial lines. While many people of the same race share similar features, they differ from each other like any other group of people. Following is an account of each of the races and their general shared history and physical features.
