Oliera has several races that walk its surface. The most significant of all of the races, in terms of world history, and cultural and magical breakthroughs are the fierce and expansionist Arkaathi.
The once benign, and now tragically scattered Aghari also can be found, though they have been driven from their rocky plains, and wonder the lands in scattered bands, stealing and raiding where they can.
The Vi’Odala, once worshipped for their advanced art and culture, now reduced to a race lacking a unifying identity, turning to savagery and tribal warfare.
The Verashki are a military minded race, broken down into feudalistic society, constantly warring with each other to better themselves, and only uniting against outside threats.
The Tari are a reclusive, mountain dwelling race, living in isolated stone monasteries, striving to find self awareness.
The Tem are a dark and mysterious race, inhabiting the deepest recesses of caves, forests and anywhere else they can work from the shadows.
