Known as the Na Figan, this race of changelings has taken it upon themselves to be the peace keepers and protectors of the Valley. As they are shape shifters, their self appointed job of being the protectors of the Valley is hard to ignore. NO, they are not a playable race, but I have them on this page because they have a great impact on the pre-game history.
What their true form is, remains a mystery. As well as their exact numbers and where their villages are. They are most often seen in a transitory form, halfway between a non-organic form, into a humanoid form.
They allow no conflicts to erupt between the other races of the Valley. Quickly putting to sleep those involved and then returning the unconscious bodies to their respective homes. They use some form of witchfire to cause this sleep, which is unknown to the other races.
As quick as they are to stop conflicts between the races, they completely ignore any internal conflict of each race.
Na Figan allow no outsiders to enter the Valley. Always moving quickly to the area of entry and repulsing the intruders.
In the known history of the Refuge, only once have the Na Figan used deadly force in their protection of the Valley.
A Living Metal monster had entered into the Valley, somehow without the knowledge of the Na Figan. It wandered from the east end of the Valley, coming out of the Great Hole and travelled west along the Winding River, finally entering the Refuge, creating a hole in the Great Wall, and began attacking the Pupils. With several buildings damaged or destroyed, it was feared that nothing would be able to stop the monster.
But, the Na Figan had now realized that the monster was in the Valley and moved to destroy it. The battle was great and a number of Na Figan perished, but the monster was destroyed.
The Na Figan removed the remains of the monster and all Na Figan who were killed disolved like water, running into the ground, before the eyes of the Pupils, solving the mystery of why the remains of dead Na Figan had never been found.
