A species of humanoids which bear several similarities to terrestrial birds, the Dchichi possess avian heads, raptor-like feet and a beautiful, multicoloured plumage. Normally attired in garments woven from a fine golden mesh, they are a highly intelligent race famed for their natural understanding of the language of other beings, be it vocal or through body-sign, and are strongly implied to be amongst the chosen of the Elder Gods.
The Dchichi are known to inhabit a floating mountain-island in Elysia powered by antigravity discs, although whether this is their point of origin is as yet unknown. The many eyries and honeycombed tunnels contained within this island are decorated like the richest of homes, and play host to thousands upon thousands of Dchichi eggs. Each of these eggs is spoken to and taught as if it were a thinking, sentient being; in fact they are, and each hatchling has heard and absorbed the lessons given to it by its tutor througout its incubation. By the time a Dchichi hatches, it is already capable of speaking and understanding more languages than any human could learn in a lifetime, and is a connoisseur of the arts, architecture and sciences of uncountable races.
