The Agethu Seas are a series of huge inland lakes far too large to be simply called lakes or ponds. The Agethu are known for quite a few things – underground thermal venting that keeps the Seas warm all-year long, beds and hives of several dangerous creatures such as the Ithiulo and Kck’ioahl, and a flourishing underwater kingdom known as the Jminlii Waters. Jminli strive to live in harmony with the world around them.
Physique & Psyche
Jminlii have a thick eyelid that acts as protection from… just about anything. It is the one tell tail item that is a warning prior to violence. A jminli shutting this lid can end most fights prior to them ever getting started.
Jminlii take a practical approach to the arcane cantrips or casting. Most typically they have a series of short term effects they have personally created to be used in combat or hostile environments. Elemental bolts, sensory perception, increasing Traits for short spans and so forth. They tend to shy away from illusion, soul casting but instead focusing on what they refer to as Battle Magic. Indeed, such practical measures means that most anyone desiring such lessons will go straight to the jminlii. Fortunately, their practical measures and their disposition keeps an open mind and giving heart.
On Spiritual Matters
Jminlii have a strange relation with the Divine powers. The simply ignore the Divine from Before. Instead they tend to take a shamanistic method with spirits that dwell with every element of Adeaia. They are not solitary in this approach, but they do not imply their beliefs upon others.
Allies and Antagonists
Perhaps obviously, the jminlii get along famously with most aquatic miens such as the saobulu. Under the sea’s horizon, there is a whole new world to search for CRADLEs and other shelters.
The jminlii do not universally distrust the Ma’al, but they take their interactions with them on a case by case basis. Again, practical measures.
As mentioned previously, jminlii search the coral reefs and shallow waters almost as a police force, offering protection and navigators for those that would search under the waves. As a self appointed guardians of the seas of Adeaia, they will search for any truth that will allow the other miens of surface life can rely upon the truths the jminlii are capable of bringing to those who are otherwise ignorant.
