Opal Gardens is one of Aultora’s Seven realms and is home to the Rawkken who inhabit the capital called, The Jaded City. Rawkken are a race of spiritual draconic beings known for their harmony and connection with the Spirit World which they call; The Oryalis.

Rawkken horns are made up of a matter called Ethereal - their appearance resembles a crystal that churns with specks of light and ribbons of colour. The Rawkken describe the Ethereal as ‘Eyes of The Ancestors’ believing the spirits of the Oryalis can see into the world of the living, through them. 

Their Ethereal horns grant the Rawkken a unique ability to pass into their own Oryalis Realm physically, within their realm they’re able to counsel with spirits. Knowledge is their life, purpose and currency - it’s everything to the Rawkken, and through the Oryalis they can delve into the beginnings and ends of great historic achievements, wars or even ancient techniques for blacksmithing, arts or old knowledge on how to heal certain illnesses. 

The knowledge they gain within their Oryalis Realm is stored and protected there by the spirits themselves; this is called, The Oryalis Chronicles.

The Oryalis is separated into different territories; Gold, Ruby, Jade, Amethyst, Amber and Rose - each of them named for the shade of their Ethereal Realm and each have their own Spiritual purpose and knowledge.   


  • All Rawwken are hatched from eggs with clear Ethereal horns which they call Quartz and are granted their colour when visiting the Ancestral Tree; magnificent veins of shining Ethereal, its form resembling a tree branching up from a rune stone in the 'Shrine of The Lost'. Newly hatched Rawkken are usually brought to the tree to receive the Ancestor’s Blessing, their horns given one of the six Ethereal colours depending on the Rawkken’s Soul and henceforth the ability to pass into their given territory within the Oryalis.

    However, there are those who do not wish to be connected to the Oryalis, and are not taken to the Ancestral Tree when hatched and are given a choice to either receive their blessing later in life or continue to live without access to the Spirit World. Rawkken who don’t receive the Ancestor’s Blessing are not treated with malice by other Rawkken, and are known to seek their fate differently.

  • Ethereal is the crystal the Rawkken’s horns are born with and what the Ancestral Tree’s branches grow with. The Rawkken believe their God Virgo blessed their kind with the Ethereal so they can protect the Oryalis. They describe the Ethereal as ‘Eyes of The Ancestors’ believing the spirits of the Oryalis can see into the world of the living, through them.

    The blessing didn’t come until after the Ancient’s reign - after freeing themselves from slavery, and have learnt to evolve their blessing into their daily lives. 

    Their Ethereal horns allow them to physically go into the Oryalis, their own Realm in one of the many territories where they can learn ancient histories, knowledge that they use for the good of their people.

  • The Jade Ethereal belongs to the Royal Bloodline of the Rawkken - the new hatchlings are taken to the Ancestral Tree and are blessed with Jade horns. The Ancestral Tree’s branches are decorated with Ethereal blossoms, each representing a Rawkken Ancestor that has passed into the Oryalis at death. It is said that this is how the Spirits know when royalty is presented before them for their blessing; because of their predecessors knowledge is returned to the Oryalis and therefore the Ancestral Tree. 

  • Rawkken who have been banished from the Oryalis and the Jaded City are called, ‘The Abandoned Ones’. There is such a tale of a certain Rawkken called Scias; who was banished from the Oryalis for scrawling dark spells and conjurings he learnt from his Realm all over his body using them for selfish endeavours. When he was discovered, the Spirits banished him and he was sent away from the Jaded city. Some say he found knowledge within the Oryalis Chronicles about other worlds and travelling between them - information like this can be dangerous to Aultora. After Scias’s crime, the spirits locked away the knowledge he’d discovered so no one could mistreat it again.

  • When a Rawkken finds a mate, they celebrate their union through a consummation ritual called Harmony, during which their spirits entwine and from this moment are able to delve into each other’s Oryalis territory. For the Rawkken, this is both a moment of pleasure, trust and excitement; when visiting each other’s Oryalis Realm, they can delve into each other’s Chronicles.

    If a Quartz and a Rawkken with the Ancestor’s blessing, Gold, Ruby etc mate, then neither partners can enter each other’s Oryalis during consummation - the Quartz would have to be blessed by the Ancestors tree in order to initiate the Harmony Ritual with their partner. 

    Sometimes arranged marriages are formed in order to expand a family's knowledge through their union. This benefits families that want to improve their standing in the Jaded city, and those who wish to expand their Chronicles further by accessing another Oryalis territory. 

    However, during or after their union should either one of the partners misuse the knowledge from their partners Chronicles, or mistreat the spirits in their visiting territories, both partners will be banished by the spirits from the Oryalis, their horns turned black and sent away from the Jaded City.

  • The Ethereal Tree calls to a Rawkken who has reached the end of their life span, whether it be age, illness or in battle, their soul hears the call of the Ancestral Tree, summoning them to join the spirits in the Oryalis. Like a moth to a flame, the dying Rawkken's spirit wonders to the Tree and is taken into the Spirit World to join their ancestors. This process is called, ‘The Rejoining’; the Rawkken rejoins the Oryalis, their knowledge and legacy returned for another to discover. When a Rawkken has ‘rejoined’ with the Spirit World, a new Ethereal flower blossoms on the Ancestral Tree.

  • The Rawkken’s neighbours are the Voma; a race of naga-like creatures that they consider malicious, greedy and shameless, forever protecting their borders from them consistently. The Voma have been known to kidnap Rawkken Fauns, their obsession with the Oryalis gave them the twisted notion that ingesting or wearing a shard of Ethereal as a trinket, or having a Faun slave; will give them the ability to enter the Spirit World physically as well. As is expected, wars broke out, blood was shed - and over time the obsession became merely a fad, a luxury to the Voma.

    To this day, the Voma run an Ethereal Emporium, selling Rawkken Faun slaves, Ethereal trinkets made from shards of their horns or selling Ethereal powder most commonly as a drug, the list is endless. The Rawkken still battle the Voma’s lust for their kind, armed with their highly trained Warriors of Dawn, who protect the people of their realm from the Voma’s greedy coils.

  • The Rawkken have certain anatomical attributes that are unique to their kind aside from their Ethereal horns. Such as; Males have two long tendril-like whiskers that expand from their muzzle by their nose, and on their genitalia. The nodes of these tendrils connect to their partner's or their skin during the Harmony Ritual to bring pleasure and connect with their Partner’s Oryalis Realm. The nodes on their genitalia tendrils can send small vibrating tones from the nodes to elevate an intimate experience.

    They also have two different species types called Eldens and Fauns, the Eldens are usually larger and have a stronger build, whilst the Fauns are smaller and fluffier.

    Their physique can vary between Rawkken body types, including height, body mass and shape - there is no perfect or one true shape. Their physique can depend on their profession as well as their hobbies. But the Rawkken are not deluded on how they should or shouldn’t look - evolving past their physical appearances and finding friendship, love and attraction in all and any.

    Rawkken also only have two fingers and a thumb.


There are certain anatomical differences between Elden and Faun males and females. Such as; the Fauns are slimmer, small and fluffier in size, their eyes are also all colour unlike the Eldens, their horns and fringes are also shorter. They also have secondary horns on their foreheads.

The Eldens have dark pupils and sclera in the eyes, the males also have tendril-like whiskers on their muzzle and on the top base of their genitalia. They also have large hard scales along the top of their tails.

The female Eldens have fans at the ends of their tails which stay open - they also have fluffier ears and their fringe is separated into two either side of their heads.

Their differences don’t have any ability attributes, anatomical only.

A Rawkken can enter the Oryalis from anywhere in Aultora by saying a message, passed on to them by their Ancestors; ‘Ancestor’s, grant me passage’. Once this is whispered, their horns glow and their bodies are taken into their realm; during which they can discover knowledge and happenings that might have occurred in the location they entered from. When they choose to leave their Realm they can do so via a Waypoint they create within the Oryalis upon entering, they will return in the same place they entered from in the world of the living.

The Spirit World has many names among the races of Aultora, The Abyss, The Embrace - but to the Rawkken - it’s known as the Oryalis. 

The Oryalis is separated into different territories; Gold, Ruby, Jade, Amethyst, Amber and Rose - each of them named for the shade of their Ethereal Realm and each have their own Spiritual purpose and knowledge. 

In the Oryallis, the Rawkken can commune with the Spirits of all races, to learn different knowledge they use in their daily lives for the good of their people. Below lists the Realm’s spirit types and the potential they hold for Rawkken with the blessing to enter their realm.

The Jade Realm is blessed to members of the Royal bloodline - the Ancestors of the Royal Jade Empire recognise the soul of their family when produced before the Ancestral tree. Being blessed with this Realm - allows them to counsel with their Ancestors, seeking guidance in hours of need, grand decisions that can result in many outcomes, or even advise on how to rule the city.

Neutural

Those who choose not to be blessed with an Oryalis Realm, remain as Quartz - this means they have no connection to the Spirit world and are free to pursue a profession of their choosing without the influence of a spiritual connection.

Banished

Every race isn't without their criminals, those who misuse knowledge from the Oryalis Chronicles, or mistreat the Spirits are banished by them from their Realm. This act causes a Rawkken’s Ethereal horns to turn black, and are no longer able to enter the Oryalis - they are usually also banished from the Opal Gardens Realm as punishment for their crime. Rawkken who have been banished from the Oryalis and the Jaded City are called, ‘The Abandoned Ones’.
