Las'la Crimsonwing

Las'la Crimsonwing was an Avian who fled his native village to live with his Grounded wife. Initially, he had secretly held on to his belief in Kluex, but gradually came to lose his faith, which culminated with his brother Shir'en being chosen as an Ascendant and leaping from the Celestial Tower.

Mallard Wrenolds

Mallard Wrenolds was the captain of a smuggler airship, hired by Greenfinger of the Floran to deliver Avian power crystals in exchange for a number of Drysap concoctions. The smuggler was coerced by an Avian mechanic into giving him several of the crystals. Disgruntled by his recurring attempts at blackmail, Wrenolds captured the mechanic and locked him in the cargo hold. The captive broke out using a makeshift power armor and thrusters, built from the machinery in the hold.

Shir'en Crimsonwing

Shir'en Crimsonwing was the brother of K'arn Hollowbeak and an Avian chosen to become an Ascendant. Going against the wishes of his family, he leaped from the Celestial Tower. He survived due to landing in a bale of hay, but he suffered a concussion and was disqualified from the Ascension.


Skydiver was an Avian chosen to become an Ascendant. He leaped, and died in the process.

The Iron Avian

An unnamed Avian, he was originally trained to become an Ascendant. At one point he fled and started working aboard an airship as a mechanic.

Fond of creating all kinds of contraptions, he attempted to coerce smuggler captain Mallard Wrenolds into giving him a number of power crystals to use as components, which he used to create a robot companion. Nonetheless, the machine turned rogue due to the actions of a Hylotl stowaway, and had to be shut down. Eager to try again, the mechanic sought more power crystals from the smugglers.

His second attempt at blackmailing backfired when Wrenolds locked him up in his ship's cargo bay. Nonetheless, using the parts within, the mechanic managed to escape, using a metal suit of armor that he assembled from the parts in the cargo hold.


Thornwing was the leader of an assassin order known as the Ring of Thorns, and a former candidate for Ascension.
