Godborn

Before they were cast down from Olympia, the gods of the Pantheon would often take lovers among the most beautiful or most accomplished mortals. These trysts would occasionally result in Godborn, offspring more than human but less than gods. These halfbreeds were often born with amazing abilities, but the majority of them ended up as outcasts, shunned and feared by their human kin but unwelcome atop Olympia. Now that the gods have fallen, the Godborn find themselves hunted as blasphemers against the crown, and in heavy demand by other powerful figures as bodyguards, concubines, or in some cases ingredients in dark magic rituals. As their numbers dwindle the Godborn have fled to the fringes of society, looking for anywhere that they can survive.
