Notable Humans

Humans (人間, Ningen), also commonly known as Mortals, are the lower class beings inhabiting Gaea and Shinkoku Trastrium in Asura's Wrath. They are ruled and controlled by the Demigods, and are the fundamental source of Mantra for the Demigod race. They worship the Demigods and deities, regularly praying to them for protection against the Gohma.

The humans appear to have pale or peach-colored skin and wear clothing depending on the area in which they live. Humans living in warmer climates wear looser clothing such as tunics.

Humans living in colder areas wear heavier clothing such as glows, mocassins, and parkas made out of fur and wool to protect them from the severe conditions, loosely resembling that of Inuit Culture.

History

Eons before the start of the series, the Mantra deity, Chakravartin, bestowed Mantra unto a singular group of mortals who progressed and eventually transcended their limitations. These evolved beings known as Demigods established an empire upon Gaea and came to be worshipped as Deities by the humans who were not influenced by Mantra. The Demigods set up a hierarchical system and humans would serve as the lower class, providing their prayers in aiding the Demigods to protect Gaea from the malicious entity known as the Gohma. As the lower class of Shinkoku, the humans were mainly controlled by the Demigods, whom they willingly accepted and worshipped. By offering their prayers, they assured the demigods a constant influx of Mantra.

While they lack the ability to manipulate Mantra themselves, they were granted Mantra by the Demigods as a source of power for their technology and industry. This caused an industrial boom, and the human population grew to over 5 billion. Due to the government by the demigods, no civil wars occurred among humans, but they were always under the threat of attack from the Gohma. Humans live scattered in various settlements all around the world. The level of advancement in civilization in each human city is highly dependent on its location.

After the latest battle against the Gohma, the Demigod Commander of the Eight Guardian Generals, Deus, took control of Gaea and essentially convinced humans to sacrifice themselves to give their souls to the Demigods under the promise of salvation.

12,000 Years later

After 12,000 years of this tradition, humans had become essentially listless and prayed to die in despair and hopes they would reach Heaven through sacrificing their lives for the Seven Deities. When Asura comes across a village after awakening on Gaea, the people of the village keep their distance at first, but they slowly gather around Asura in curiosity upon his arrival. The entrance of their village is firmly built, but it is no match against the horde of Gohma that invade their village.

500 Years later

500 years later, the people of a village from the colder regions of Gaea have enshrined Asura's remains after his first battle with Yasha. Just as the rest of the humans, these villagers blindly worship the gods and accept death as a blessing to purify their souls. However, after the exploits of the demigod Asura and Mithra's tale of Asura's exploits to future generations of humans, humankind was finally free to progress on its own will and came to worship Asura as a savior of humanity.

Powers and Abilities

While they lack the ability to manipulate Mantra themselves, humans are granted Mantra by the Demigods as a source of power for their technology and industry. In addition, their prayers, as well as their souls, can be converted into Mantra, producing a tremendous amount of power and assuring the demigods a constant influx of Mantra.

Trivia

  • The humans speak an unknown language that is understood by the demigods but held as a secret to the audience. Only during the interludes are their words translated.
