Diamorak

Diamoraks are one of the most strange and unusual creatures that dwell in Zikkaria. It has the shape of a humanoid, but instead of having flesh, is made up of a diamond-like composition. The history of the diamoraks has been passed on through the songs of minstrels. The first diamorak was created during the GorKan wars for control of the Skorvian Desert. Two competing wizards cast their most powerful magic spells against each other simultaneously. The combined might of both these wizards’ spells caused a rife in the Magical Weave. This rift unleashed uncontrollable energy which combined with the intense heat of Morbius’ firelance spell with Valandra’s metamorphosis spell to create the phenomena known as transmutatis. Both wizards were transformed by an infusion of errant magical energy and the surrounding black sand in a strange new form that later would be called a diamorak. A diamorak, being a product of the desert is able to join with the surrounding sand to give itself added protection in desert terrain.

Diamoraks have no family to speak of, so they use single names to identify themselves, with a qualifier based on the flaws in their diamond structure.
