4.14.19 THE ORIGIN OF THE MORTAL RACES

During the Elder Wars, rather than be consumed by the Soulless Gods, 
several Elder Gods splintered their bodies and souls. These fragments 
became the mortal races. Though not all Elder Gods chose this path nor 
all mortal races came to be in this manner, it remains true that all 
Lusternians believe that within each of them is contained the fragment of 
a god. Thus it is said that the god-fragment within can potentially evolve 
through the cycles of birth and rebirth until perfection is achieved and 
the fragment is made whole, becoming a divine in its own right.
