The more ethereal of the races who consider themselves the own living representations of their sun god father, Hikari. Their beauty is thought to be almost otherworldly, like that of their mother. The Seraphs generally work as the diplomats, the hierophants, harbingers, etc., considering themselves the ‘faces’ of the Hikari, although some choose a more simple life of artisans, makers of goods, etc. While Seraphs can understand the avian tongue, they cannot speak it, but can converse in Common. The most beautiful of young, virgin women in seraph families are often chosen in various celebrations to train and become shrine maidens to the shrines of Hikari, other gods/goddesses, and various spirits since Father Hikari is most appeased by being served by the most beautiful of devotees.
