"I hope customization will be more diverse than this picture portrays lol."

Blade and Soul contains four, count 'em: four, playable races for players to choose from. Each race is completely different from the others. Physical differences are a given, but each race has a specific back story, cultural differences, and skills. Pick the one that's best for you and I'll see you in-game!

The Gon[edit source]

Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Overview[edit source]

Immovable, unwavering, tenacious, daunting. These are the Gon. This dark skinned race towers over the races in height and strength. Characterized by the spirit of earth, the Gon fight with unprecedented power and grace. They use their awe inspiring size to demoralize opponents, then exhibit a prowess worthy of the inflicted terror. Outside of battle they are a honorable and selfless race. Going out of their way to help others in their way of life. One can find no better hospitality then that received by the Gon.

  • Easily influenced by evil
  • Strong willed, stubborn nature
  • Women of the Gon are characterized as tall and sexily muscular. Their character leans towards impulsive yet are utterly selfless in their actions[1]

Other Info[edit source]

Legends tells of the origin of the Gon:

Born of dragon's breath, they were gifted with strength and power unmatched in the world. However, their hearts and minds were effortlessly taken advantage of by dark impulses. As a result of their weakness in the face of the dragons that gave them life, they were plagued by the same curse placed on their makers by the gods themselves. Steadfast as they are, the Gon accepted their destiny and now wander the earth aiding the afflicted, hoping that one day their people will be absolved.[2]

The Jin[edit source]

With strong will and determination, all can be achieved.

Overview[edit source]

To a human, the Jin are about as similar as one could hope to find. . . in appearance anyway. The phrase "never judge a book by its cover" was written with this race in mind. A Jin's skeletal structure alone is far superior. This supplies a Jin with exceptional dexterity. However, a Jin's true strength lies within their minds and soul. A Jin's spirit is as unwavering in morality as the wind in the center of a storm. Their mental capabilities are unquestioned, giving them the ability to comprehend anything and everything they put there minds to learn. Most famous martial artists and even intellectual geniuses are of the Jin race. The Jin are also gifted with a strong sense of justice. Much like the Gon, they spend their time helping those in need, sharing in their burdens as if they were their own.[4][5]

Characteristics[edit source]

  • Average human characteristics of height and physical size.
  • Immense determination
  • Strong spirit and sense of Justice
  • Incredible comprehensive ability
  • A spectacular skeletal structure

The Yun[edit source]

Real strength never impairs beauty or harmony, but often bestows it; and in everything imposingly beautiful, strength has much to do with the magic.

Overview[edit source]

Two words: Male Fantasy. The Yun. . . what more is there to say? I'm kidding. What ISN'T there to say. This gorgeous harem of a race is composed of 100% women of which you'd be lucky to even catch a glimpse. These pictures of physical perfection are a rare sight as they prefer the company of nature to temporal pleasures. The ladies of the Yun dwell within the natural barriers of hidden mountains, valleys, rivers and streams. Hiding themselves away from the chaos of the world, they content themselves with the arts, music, and poetry. Their concealing habits coupled with unrivaled beauty often have them mistaken for goddesses when seen. The Yun's very namesake refers to their supposed origin being the heavens. Besides their physical appearance, the Yun's sense of order and balance is also superior. It is not uncommon to hear that a Yun has emerged to hold negotiations with the other races in an attempt to reestablish order.[8][9]

Characteristics[edit source]

  • Unrivaled beauty and grace
  • An affinity for nature the arts
  • A conservative people
  • A strong sense of order and balance

Too many edits[edit source]

Try to just make a big edit instead of 20 little ones. It gets harder on motorizing. Oh, and try to clean your discussion page, hard to leave a message. And don't create pages with "Coming Soon". Or write something in it or simply leave it alone. Sekuiya 23:20, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

And next time, use the Discussion page to answer, not the User page! ^^' Sekuiya 23:33, 19 July 2011 (UTC)
Application? Revast is holding wiki applications? Din't know that, nice. We really could use some help that knows the wiki around. You need a little training, if I can be honest. Or maybe it's just me that is picky in terms of wiki. ^^' Oh well, good luck anyway! Sekuiya 23:45, 19 July 2011 (UTC)
No problem, always trying to help. And well, truth be told, our wiki still don't have templates and guidelines so people don't exactly know how to do stuff. Something I may work on during my holidays! :P Btw, why don't you use your own "Sandbox" instead of your Discussion page to try your editing while we don't have official sandboxes? ;) Sekuiya 23:56, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

RE: Stubs Addition[edit source]

Oh, sorry about that. By the way, how are you communicating with Lee? Could I join you? That way we could "coordinate" things better. — Sekuiyatalk 00:25, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Hmm, I don't feel like using Xfire. Can't we Skype or Live Messenger? — Sekuiyatalk 04:30, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
