The two original races of Nevre were humans and venerii. The human race splintered off into nine races (dwarves, elves, halflings, humans, riverfolk, skravyn, variin, wicks, and zarxii) including a human race that had skin colors as various as the colors in a rainbow. Venerii were only located on the southern continent of Nezkidar and after a thousand years with no sightings were turned into myths and legends. The salamen arose from magical energies that turned a clutch of strange salamanders into smaller sentient creatures.
