Outsiders

Back to Kith

Origin

Tristan and Mahuatl occasionally couple, to slake their loneliness. When this happens, an Outsider is always created. Outsiders always seem to be born on the Ways.

Reproduction

Outsiders appear to reproduce asexually. Occasionally, smaller Outsiders are seen in the company of larger ones, which identify as the parent. If other Outsiders are involved, it never comes up.

Nature & Culture

Outsiders never look the same from moment to moment. Generally, Outsiders appear to be floating a short distance above the ground. Some describe Outsiders as looking somehow inside-out. Often, Outsiders look as though they have a large central mass, with other forms orbiting like satellites. These forms are sometimes amorphous, and sometimes sharp geometric shapes.

Outsiders can look dramatically different to two people seeing it at the same time, because the tiniest movement of the Outsider, or of the person perceiving it, can change its appearance dramatically. An Outsider's color changes as often as its appearance.

Outsiders can pass through solid objects at will, and can also see inside solid objects. They can also carry solid objects - they are not permanently permeable.

Outsiders will always keep their word, and cannot comprehend lies - they only speak the truth. Their behavior otherwise borders on the bizarre, as they have no sense of social niceties. Acting in an erratic manner is often ascribed as 'being an Outsider.'

Outsiders tend to make comments and turns of phrase that would make sense to a modern day dweller, but not so much to the denizens of their world.

Outsiders speak to each other using what they describe as 'a type of invisible light.' To speak to members of the other races, they require a bezoar - a pearl-like extrusion that the Outsider creates, which is attuned to that particular Outsider. It can convert what the Outsider is saying into sound that others can hear and interpret.

Losing a bezoar is a difficult thing for an Outsider, as it takes at least a year to make a bezoar.

Outsiders are aware of what are called 'The Ways', which seem to be strange twisty shortcuts through the world, somewhat similar to the apparation of the stars. Through the Ways they can travel between Taros and Lasia's Tears, and to even the other planets. Unlike the paths of the stars, The Ways do not extrude from Hazaril.
