of Aion
The shattered world of
Atreia is inhabited by two
playable character races –
Elyos and Asmodians – and their
common enemy, the Balaur.

The Asmodians
The Asmodians are a brave and hardy people.
Their skin is pale or dusky, and their eyes have
adapted to low light by gaining an otherworldly glow
that is most pronounced during combat.
Asmodians are generous and fiercely loyal to their own,
but they do not think twice before fighting ferociously
against outsiders. Ascended Asmodian Daevas are blessed
with strength and the ability to fly, and their feathered wings
are dark in colour.
Asmodians live in the murky upper half of Atreia, the world of Aion,
known as Asmodae. Their capital city is Pandaemonium.

12 13
The Elyos
The Elyos are a beautiful and radiant people. Elyos are comforting, warm
and friendly, but against foes, they are not kindly or benevolent.
Elyos believe they are blessed, but their splendour has also led them
to become arrogant. The ascended forms of Elyos Daevas have
stunning, angelic wings, and their immense strength belies their
graceful appearance.
The Elyos occupy the lower half of Atreia, a light-filled land
known as Elysea. Their capital city is Sanctum.

14 15
The Balaur
The term “Balaur” invokes
images of terror and fear in
the hearts of humans in both
halves of Atreia. A mighty
and highly intelligent race
created by the god, Aion,
to care for and rule the
planet’s population, the
Balaur quickly became
fixated with power
and domination. Their
aggression eventually
led Aion to create the
twelve Empyrean Lords
to safeguard the planet
and its people. Customer Support
