The term alius is a catch-all term for the mortal races who are not human. An erlking is an aliud, as is a lamia or a centaur. There are many alius, with about one human to every three alius when looking at the global population. While the alius may outnumber the humans when grouped together, individual races are outnumbered by the human population. Throughout history, humans and alius have struggled to maintain peace. However, after the world-ending cataclysm, both sides were forced to work together and forge a lasting truce.
The Jotun are a race of giants.
