Physical Description[edit]

The Lustrous take the forms of humans, but with bodies made of polished gemstone that differ depending on their material composition. Most of them have hair, eyes, and nails the same color as their gemstone bodies and white skin made from powder they apply to protect from sea breeze and harsh sunlight. While their hair may look solid, it can be manipulated similarly to human hair (cut, tied, braided, etc).


A group of Lustrous once existed in a small group, but this society fell apart due to inner conflict over the goals of the Lustrous as a whole. This led to the decline in Lustrous and their society.

Lustrous Names[edit]
