Blessed can be anything just like other veiled races, but many gravitate towards groups of religious faith, particularly religions such as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. They are the only veiled race that is accepted by Awakened Islamic fundamentalists, being seen as though they have been touched by Allah to carry out his wrath on the unbelievers. However, some do become wizards (gravitating towards becoming Aurors) and several are members of the Wardens as well. There are also some that simply become policemen, firefighters, and bodyguards. The desire to protect is an innate feeling for most blessed. There are some, however, that spurn their heavenly origins and turn towards the dark. These beings are more vicious and wicked than most other practitioners of the dark arts.
Blessed often have children, but the divine spark is often not passed directly from generation to generation. A family may go 5 or more generations without seeing another blessed, if they ever see another. No one truly understands why a child is born as a blessed, but many mages suspect that angelic beings may be meddling in the Real to make it happen. A blessed that fathers (or carries in the case of blessed women) a child with another race, that child has no chance of becoming a blessed. The offspring will be a normal half-elf/giant/orc/veela/whatever.
Viper Dragonfolk are wingless and flightless beings with dark green scales. Their mouths only have four fangs and their bites are venomous. They breathe streams of poison rather than fire. Viper dragonfolk can be found in forests and jungles the world over. They are cunning and territorial, but are the least intelligent of the dragonfolk races.
One other race that I'm going to write up later is the Wesen, people that are able to take on monstrous aspects typically tied to various animals.
Up next: the various rules I'm using to fit the setting.
