The Kalashtar are a race of humanoids which are the children of two worlds created from the union of humanity with rebel spirits from the plane of dream spirits called the quori. These spirits are known to have altered and have not kept the binding laws and thus were outlawed.

Their physiology is subtly changed by the touch of this Dream Spirit Quori. They also have a close physical semblance to humans. However, their movements and body language are different from those of humans. Kalashtars are known for their wisdom and compassion. The spirits of the original quori renegades touch the souls of their descendants, and this provides a kalashtar with an excess of psychic energy and a natural gift for psionic powers. The most characteristic element of a kalashtar is his soul.

Kalashtar Names

Kalashtar names are formed by the blend of a personal prefix tied to the name of the quori spirit within the kalashtar. Each spirit has a gender identity which may not match the gender of the containing vessel. A male Kahlashtar may be tied to a spirit with feminine identity and the same is applicable to the female. Kalashtar orphans are unlikely to know the names of their spirits and instead, as we see in most other races, take names from the cultures in which they were raised.
