Graced with a touch of the holy, Aasimars are usually tall, good-looking and generally pleasant. Some have a minor physical trait suggesting their heritage, such as sliver hair, golden eyes, or an unnaturally intense stare.
Most Aasimars are decidedly good-aligned. They fought against evil causes and attempt to sway others to do the right thing. Occasionally they take on the vengeful, judgmental aspect of their celestial ancestor, but this is rare. They're rarely found in leadership positions, and often live as loners due to their absolute dedication to goodness. Others are less fanatical and fit seamlessly into normal human society.
