RESEARCH IN PROGRESS

overview
The Novamancers, also known as the Refugees, are pieces of space fleeing from the Shade, which seeks to devour them. At the end of the Third Age, when the Shade shattered the magical barrier of the gods' Pillar, some of the barrier's magical energy radiated into space. As a result, some parts of space that were not yet swallowed by the Shade gained partial sentience, becoming aware that in order to continue existing, they must take refuge. Slowly, nebula clouds gravitated toward the seemingly safe world of Sornieth, and, recognizing that nebulae were not acceptable physical forms, morphed into dragon-like appearance. These fragments of space then assimilated into clans that were willing to accept them, finding protection under welcoming wings. However, will they continue to find peace in these troubling times, when the increased strength of elemental magic is causing more chaotic dominance battles, when more scientists are becoming aware of the anomaly of their existence, and when dragonkind in general has forgotten about the threat of the Shade?

novamancers: the origins
It was the sound of an explosion. Perhaps it was not even a sound, for it was so deafening compared to the previous silence, it may as well have never happened. The sound’s energy was of such great magnitude that even the stars shook gently, and new ones were born from interstellar gas. When the wave of sound and magical energy eventually dissipated, the universe surrounding the newly ravaged world of Sornieth returned to its relative silence. But it was not the same.

physical attributes
Novamancers feature bodies resembling a dark starry sky and wings patterned like a nebula cloud. In addition, their faces and limbs glow with runes in the colors of their wings, similar to the glow of distant galaxies. They have only been observed to take on the forms of pearlcatchers or spirals; why this is the case has yet to be determined.

social
Novamancers have not been observed interacting with any dragon. They actively avoid those who attempt to approach them. Strangely, they have never been observed to eat, even when there is no dragon to scare them off from doing so. Research is still in progress to determine the cause.

The spiral, observing that its obligations have ended, quietly slips away along a narrow moss-covered path. [color=transparent]hellloo[/color]The next morning, the dragons discover that their pillar no longer glows with the magic that it did last night. Needing to explain such a phenomenon, they agree that the strange spiral that attempted to dance with them yesterday was a magic-stealing trickster sent by Plague clan, and they vow to prank them back. A mage restores the magic to the pillar, and day two of the festivities begin. The strange spiral never crosses their mind again.[/quote] [img]https://i.imgur.com/e6h0NLb.png[/img]

helllooEventually, day turns to night, and the dragons quiet down. They stretch out on the soft grass, luxuriously feasting on an abundance of freshly gathered food. The spiral, observing that its obligations have ended, quietly slips away along a narrow moss-covered path.

helllooThe next morning, the dragons discover that their pillar no longer glows with the magic that it did last night. Needing to explain such a phenomenon, they agree that the strange spiral that attempted to dance with them yesterday was a magic-stealing trickster sent by Plague clan, and they vow to prank them back. A mage restores the magic to the pillar, and day two of the festivities begin. The strange spiral never crosses their mind again.
