History and Culture
The Sapiryans are closely similar to the Diwatas, they can also teleport themselves to another place and shoot out blast bolts from their hands. However, they are more hostile, more cunning and shrewder than the denizens of Lireo. They have the ability to heal themselves or others of a disease or any kinds of wounds. In contrast to Lirean royalty, Sapiryan royalty is very much akin to the traditional patriarchal definition of an absolute monarchy. This means the eldest son of the king is next in line to rule the mystical kingdom. The Sapiryan king is allowed to love whoever he wants to love and choose his wife but the difference from the Diwatas is that their race is dominated by men.
They are best known for their unmatched skills in swordsmanship and archery. They are also proficient in hand-to-hand combat. Sapiryans also have incredible strength, which they draw all their powers from. They are very shrewd and cunning, making them great allies and very dangerous enemies in battle.
- Royalty - Sapiryan royalty is very much alike to the traditional patriarchal definition of an absolute monarchy which means the eldest son of the king is next in line to rule the mystical kingdom. A Sapiryan of royal lineage can be identified by a distinct marking, like the Sang'gres, but on their right shoulder blades. This marking resembles the rune or symbol for Sapiro
- Mandirigma - Male warriors. They aren't classed as Sapiryans but as lower, but live outside the castles of Sapiro. They are known to be great warriors and masters of hand-to-hand combat and use such weapons like Swords, daggers, etc.
- In the 2005 version, the Royal Family of Sapiro has the special ability to teleport and heal their or other people's wounds. The 2016 version doesn't showcase neither of these abilties.
- Sapiryans are subdivided into four tribes, all of them recognize the soverignity of the King. Except the Barbaros of Askano who only recognize it into a limited degree.
