Magic and growth are closely entwined in Ura. The magic of the world permeates
and changes all life that is created. Throughout their evolution, all living
beings have undergone many changes, but from times before the higher races first
saw the light of day, some creatures have survived almost unchanged - creatures
as wondrous as they are dangerous. Some of these creatures even resemble the
human form, a fact that has puzzled writers and scholars for generations.
