Naavi

Na'viEdit


Summary: A rather tall race, lithe and limber, they live in remote locations. Na'vi have a special Bond with Nature, especially the animals.

PersonalityEdit

The Na'vi are natural hunters. Their size belies their subtlety as they stalk their prey in absolue silence and with hardened determination. When they finally do catch their prey, they thank the animal for its sacrifice and pray for it. They bring their hunt back to the tribe and celebrate a successful hunt. They celebrate by singing tribal songs that glorify their legends and god, giving thanks. The Na'vi have a great love and respect for animals and Nature, to the point where they'd kill anyone for trying to cut down a tree nearby. Most often they ask why intruders have invaded their territory, before shooting them down with arrows.

Physical DescriptionEdit

They are humanoid in appearance and are 9 to 12 feet tall, having pairs of eyes, ears, arms, and legs like humans, as well as a nose, a mouth, and expressions recognizable to humans. The Na'vi differ from humans in having blue striped skin, pointed and mobile ears, large eyes, catlike noses and teeth, tails, and four fingers. While taller than humans, they have narrower proportions in body frame. The Na'vi also have a distinctive tendril feature protruding from the back of their heads, surrounded by hair (resembling a long braid), feeding directly into the brain. This organ, known as a queue, allows them to connect with the biology around them, transferring electrochemical signals such as thoughts and memories to the trees, plants, and other creatures.

RelationsEdit

They are what many cityfolk consider savage, flea-bitten blue monkeys. Tribes in the jungle consider them to be efficient and effective hunters. They are often hostile to any who would harm Nature. As such they do not get along well with other races; unless the other race has proven themselves in some way, gaining the respect of the Na'vi. Relations with humans vary from shooting to kill on sight, to allowing them into the village to discuss trade with the chieftain. The elves of the forest have the respect of the Na'vi, the elves natural grace and will to protect the forest wins them a natural ally and potential friend in the Na'vi. Dwarves and the Na'vi don't really interact that often, so the Na'vi treat dwarves like any other intruders. Orcs of any kind, including half-orcs, are most often shot on sight, so Orcs and the Na'vi never get along. Halflings are seen as very clever and respected for their natural sublety, but often distrusted by the Na'vi; this doesn't make them an enemy but not quite an ally either. The Na'vi are indifferent about the gnomes; the Na'vi will unlikely attack a gnome, unless they are tearing the forest apart they will be left alone. Half-elves are treated with respect to an extent, because they are half-elven. Their exact treatment depends, in equal measure, upon the tribe's relations with nearby human settlements.

AlignmentEdit

Often Neutral due to their strong Bond with nature and their natural will to protect it. Because of this the Na'vi often take up the mantles of druids, rangers and even barbarians.

LandsEdit

The Na'vi tribes can be found in a remote area usually distant from civilization, in the wilds. This can be in a giant tree in the jungle, a village of huts on the plains, caves on a cliff-side, etc. They choose to live in these places so that civilizations can't and won't disturb them. The Na'vi will have a sacred area, often a set of trees or plants near their tribal community, that contains the history/memories of their ancestors. The memories can be accessed by Tsahaylu, 'The Bond'. The Na'vi tribes guard these areas with their lives; should any outsider approach the area, they are to be shot and killed.

ReligionEdit

The Na'vi people all worship one deity; an entity that they consider to be Nature incarnate called Eywa. It is Eywa they thank for a successful hunt; Eywa they pray to in troubled times. Eywa is known by the Na'vi to keep the balance of Nature; no overpopulation, no underpopulation, same with hunting, farming, and etc. It has been theorized by psions that Eywa is a powerful psionic consciousness; simply choosing to remain hidden and communicate in subtle was to the Na'vi and wildlife through their queues or the natural psionic energies. The reason for this is unknown. The Na'vi say that Eywa can be heard and spoken to through the Tree of Souls. The Tree of Souls is often a single tree guarded and hidden by a Na'vi tribe. The Tree of Souls has counterparts, similar in appearance but often smaller and found in greater numbers. These trees are where the Na'vi make their sacred lands.

LanguageEdit

The few Na'vi who bother to learn Common tend to speak it with a some-what thick accent. They also speak the language of the wild Sylvan, because of their strong bond with Nature. The language they speak most often though is their own, Na'vi.

TruthEdit

All Na'vi are a bunch of Mary-Sue cretins and deserve to be nuked from orbit. Now, get me my coffee. Col. Miles Quaritch

NamesEdit

The Na'vi are given names at birth and may earn a second name, often describing their talent, after passing their birthright. Males: Tsu'Tey, Eytucan, Eyktan, Akwey, etc. Female: Neytiri, Mo'at, etc.
