This page lists information about the Eighth Realm in the Clouded Horizons universe.
The Eighth Realm's history is marked with strife and conflict of sources both magical and non-magical, Sorceresses of Hyne's own descent often becoming the centerpiece of conflicts known historically as Sorceress Wars. Over two millennia worth of fighting has occurred in the mortal plane of Gaia, with the most recent of these events almost directly leading to the destruction of an entire civilization - that of the advanced society of Centra. In recent times, the world appeared to have settled down, only for strife to seek out the world again with the arrival of the future Sorceress Ultimecia, who was eventually sought out through time itself and killed by Squall Leonhart and his comrades. Since then, the world has been relatively peaceful...perhaps only in anticipation of the next conflict to come.
The Eighth Realm has a number of planes inhabited by a variety of races - some mortal, others akin to gods and goddesses from folklore, and still others set in positions as leaders of the planes themselves. Each plane is different and diverse, but only Planeswalkers will typically ever see all the planes in their glory.
- Main Article: Mortal Plane
The mortal plane is the primary plane of the Eighth Realm, the habitat of Hume and Vayash Moru beings. It is similar to other life-housing planets in other realms, such as Erana of the Third Realm, and is watched over by the higher planes, who share a pact of non-interference except in dire times.
- Main Article: Ethereal Plane
The Ethereal Plane is the home of the cerebral and otherworldly, home to the Malakh and Erudite races, as well as a single Ancient - Freya Vanadis, the Creator and leader of the plane itself. It serves as a focal point for magic in the mortal plane, as well as an equal and opposite to the Nether Plane.
- Main Article: Nether Plane
The Nether Plane is home to the demonic and the instinct-driven beings, as well as a single Ancient - Katanas DeValle, the Overlord and leader of the plane itself. It serves as an equal and opposite to the Ethereal Plane.
- Main Article: Soul Plane
Soul Plane is a haven for souls after death, be they from the mortal, Ethereal, or Nether Planes. It is a neutral plane, for all intents and purposes, and serves also as a replenishing point for Ethereal and Nether beings. It is the home of the Quincy race, and is presided over by an Ancient being - the Lord Sovereign Lukälius diVanégo.
The Eighth Realm contains a variety of races across its planes, both lower and higher. Each plane harbors around the same number of races, normally only one or two.
- Main Article: Hume
Hume are a race of humanoid beings living on the mortal plane of the Eighth Realm. They are adaptable and creative, thriving in a variety of places and environments throughout the plane.
- Main Article: Vayash Moru
Vayash Moru, or "vampires" in more colloquial terms, are a race of beings who have been possessed by exceptionally powerful Daiesthai or Arrancar. Typically, these beings were originally Hume, but there is no evidence that rules out other beings having been turned into Vayash Moru before.
- Main Article: Quincy
Quincy are a race of higher beings residing in the Soul Plane, representing the beings that other races become after death. They are spiritually keen and powerful, but are the weakest race of beings on the higher planes.
- Main Article: Malakh
Malakh are a race of Ethereal beings who once inhabited the Ethereal Plane, a formerly-numerous race which was nearly eradicated during the last war within the Plane. They are powerful beings with knowledge of many magical talents; only a few remain alive in the present day.
- Main Article: Daiesthai
Daiesthai are a race of demonic beings inhabiting the Nether Plane, a race built upon warfare and treachery. Often, these beings are little more than beasts, but many show great intelligence and cunning on the level of many other races as they age and grow more powerful.
- Main Article: Erudite
Erudite are another race of beings who reside on the Ethereal Plane, a numerically-fewer but more powerful race before the last Ethereal war. The Ethereal Plane is almost solely inhabited by these beings now, and they are powerful warriors in both physical and magical combat.
