A race of avian humanoids living in the high, frozen mountains of northwestern Albaria, the Shaerek are a theocratic society. They worship a singular Bird-God, and their civilization is led by their High Priest. Because they live so high up, there is a great physical boundary between the Shaerek and the rest of the continent. There are two distinctive beliefs the Shaerek follow. First is the White Codex of Laws, and second is the White Wind. The White Wind is a being/occurrence that protects the Shaerek by obliterating their enemies with fierce winds. To retain this protection, the Shaerek must strive for purity, thus their reluctance to involve themselves with the other peoples. They are not a hostile race, though -- they have been cooperative with the Luethras and Gnomes.
