The Kytani were the last race to be absorbed into Arkaathi culture and arguably the only race to be enriched by the experience. The Kytani were subsumed into Arkaathi culture during the infancy of their culture which meant that their culture was heavily influenced by Arkaathi culture. The Kytani replaced both the Vi’Odala and Tulasi as slave stock, a role that they excelled at. The Kytani filled many roles within Arkaathi culture, but the bulk of Kytani slaves were used for manual labour and craftsman roles. Eventually the Kytani became so ingrained in Arkaathi culture that the Arkaathi trusted their most valued slaves with the knowledge of their arcane mastery. Eventually the Kytani began to recognize the plight of their race, particularly as they watched the decline of the Vi’Odala and Tulasi. They sought a spiritual answer to their plight and over the years a nocturnal religion was born. Though these prayers did not solve the plight of the Kytani people, it did aid them in developing a separate culture of racial identity from the Arkaathi. This unification served the Kytani well when the Vi’Odala eventually rose up and brought low the Arkaathi empire. The Kytani now live in the mostly abandoned ruins of the Arkaathi civilization, attempting to build a civilization of their own.
Having served as the working class of the Arkaathi civilization, the Kytani were bred to be healthy and hardy, as well as being skilled craftsman. The Kytani are currently unmatched in their ability to build tools and weapons. They have amicable relationships with most of the other races, even tolerating many of the Tulasi tribes living within the ruins their own communities are built upon.
Having been scattered throughout the expansion of the Arkaathi conquests, the Kytani are almost as far reaching as the Karda, being found in almost all places across the continent. They are found in a wide variety of professions and endeavors.
