One of the eldest races upon Arcanis are the ssethrics of the Ssethregoran Empire. They are made up of a myriad of different species though all reptilian in nature. While there are a wide variety of ssethrics, the dominant species in their empire are the naga, the ssanu, the ss’ressen, and the salamankas. While other reptilian species either exists within or are allied with the Empire, it is these four groups that form the bedrock upon which all else rests.

Once masters of the entire continent, the ssethrics created the elorii to serve them, but were eventually betrayed by their servants and forced to dwell in a small corner of the continent. Here was founded the Ssethregoran Empire and has for millennia bedeviled the various peoples of Arcanis.
