The ancient bloodlines still run true in the heirs of Deismaar today. Among
those scions who have inhereted Reynir`s legacy, many ancient powers lie
dormant, a birthright waiting to be discovered. Many scions manifest their
first few blood abilities early in life and never truly unlock their
potential, choosing instead to focus on more worldly pursuits. Some,
however, especially those of the major bloodlines of old who have kept their
family blood pure, become obsessed with discovering and advancing new divine
talents within them.
