The Rakshasa are a magically created hybrid race, made up of both tiger & human.

Rakshasa can usually be found in the Sanjaara Jungle and coastal cities of Avokhar. These creatures are highly intelligent, and most have powerful magical abilities. For many centuries they were employed by the Eloysian Empire as military commanders called Myrmidons.


The origin of the rakshasa lies long ago, in the lost realm of Sha'Dur. In the ancient city of Garuda, a powerful group of wizards known as the Iridescent Order created a magical hybrid race of being, part great cat and part human. The result was a terrifying hybrid race of powerful magical beings. For centuries, the Rakshasa served heir humans masters in Garuda, the capitol city of Sha'Dur, ever plotting the downfall of their masters.

In the year AR 237, the Rakshasa secretly made a pact with the Eloysian Emperor Mazur the Destroyer. In return for their help, it was agreed that the Eloysian Empire would free the Rakshasa from Shadurian slavery in return for the fall of Sha'Dur. Unfortunately for the rebellious Rakshasa, they underestimated the cunning of Mazur, who did indeed destroy Sha'Dur, but then turned around and re-enslaved the Rakshasa for his own uses. They simply exchanged one set of masters for another
