The Starr are an angelic race given to Lorata by Aamh, the goddess of bards and celestial knowledge. They are the least common race of Lorata, and they have the most unique magic. Starshine, whose father is a bard, is a member of this race. She was born in Mithkyn and grew up not knowing any other Starr, and precious few people with mixed ancestry (Starr with fae or elf). When she moves to Mraté with Zarrek, she learns that there are many more Starr living in the kingdom or Aarrul, and later learns about the draconic Starr of the Dragon Isles.
The Starr are known for singing beautifully, making moving music, and having a strong interest in astronomy and related sciences. They are also kind, wise, peaceful, thoughtful, patient, and nurturing. That’s why Starshine always knew that she wanted to be a mother, why she wanted an advanced observatory, and why her cello music is to soothing to Zarrek.
