Eddie's Ebberon Campaign
Spirits of a distant age, devas are reborn again and
again into a world that has all but forgotten them.
BACKGROUND AND HISTORY
Stories tell how couatls, a noble race of winged serpents,
arose from the blood of Siberys and fought
against demons that sprang from the blood of Khyber.
As the demons had rakshasa allies, the couatls too
had comrades in this fight. Devas, spirits of light
horn in mortal form, aided the couatls in their battle
against the demon lords. Destined to be continually
reborn into the world. devas persist in Eherron even
now when couatls are all but extinct and kw creatures
remember the devas’ ancient purpose.
Devas cling to the virtuous precepts of their ancestors,
believing that anyone who drifts into evil is
reborn as a rakshasa. A few devas even assert that
they are rakshasa spirits that have found redemption.
although most devas doubt such claims. Devas, with
their spiritual nature and hatred of evil. often find
kalashtar to be sympathetic allies.
Devas have no homeland and are rare in Eberron

vague recollections of past lives. Thus. instead of
developing their own communities. devas dwell amid
other races. They often live among humans and are
drawn to areas where evil has a strong presence. such
as regions near the Mournland or along chasms to
Khyber. There. they work to stem the flow of demons
and aberrant creatures.
Devas do not have a dragonmarked house. On the
rare occasion when a deva does develop a dragonmark,
it is usually one from a human, elven, or halfelven
