The Naki are those of mixed race or unknown race. They have a bit of Abrendese, a bit of Shéar, some Erré, and maybe just a tiny bit of Irrít. It’s completely random and completely irrelevant. Their appearance can take from any of the races, including oddities from the Chronoscape that have settled in on Shérok. Despite their ambiguous origins, they form strong communities with each other. There are several waypoints on traveling roads that will constantly have Naki watching out for each other. They are also responsible for the traditional message relays across the country.
Along with these, there are many Shéar and Erré who become Naki over the course of their lifetime. People can develop odd mutations through experimentation or acquire a bit too many mechanical prosthetics for the liking of the general populace. Even when their appearance is unaffected, they may lose their magic and become shunned by others. While other races would shy away from these ‘abominations,’ the Naki take them in with open arms and help them get acclimated to a new life. If they decide to join the group for life, they will adopt the race as their own and their children will be Naki with them.
They are the originator of a peculiar sign language that takes as little effort to ‘speak’ as possible. It’s simple, but the subtle cues are enough to recognize each other immediately and get across important messages. Since Naki find themselves in dangerous situations more than any other group, a language that allows them to speak freely without arousing suspicion was a necessity.
