I did have another question though- are the classes just classes or races? Could an Ecaflip decide they don't want to use luck and instead train as a Cra? Or are they forced to always use dice and cards and flea pits to fight? I figure for the more human characters like Iop and Sacrier they can choose whoever they want to worship, but does that mean I'll grow fuzzy black and white fur and have a horrible addiction to milk if I decide to be a Pandawa?
There's one basic race, all the classes are members of it. In most cases, you choose the god you want to follow (or an aspect of one of them, or masks, or nothing at all, although that's rare) during puberty, thus becoming a member of one of the classes. The more devoted you are to a god, the more alike to them you become - so for example an Ecaflip gets even more feline, while a Sacrier would get more tatoos. Foggernauts are a more complicated case, but their souls also belong to the "standard" race. The more "human" classes - Iops, Sacriers, Fecas etc. - look so, because the gods they worship also look more human than Ecaflip or Sram. The appearence of the god doesn't always reflect the appearence of the followers directly in all cases, for Enus and to some degree Fecas and Xelors it's more of an example to strive for which can't be achieved, as god Enutrof is an old, hunched dragon with a long beard, godess Feca has horns and god Xelor looks like an empty cloak with glowing eyes.
You can't change your class once you've chosen a god because of the nature of the appearence changes. You can abandon your god, but it won't affect your looks anymore if you're an adult.
