The Naacal, sometimes called "Muirians", are a humanoid species that dwell on the planet Earth. Once they had a great kingdom, the Kingdom of Mu, but a flood decimated their people and they resettled in the lands of Asia where they lived extended lives, beyond that of human years. Through their genetics they have cells that produce magic, allowing them to use magic without aether. Their population is very small ever since the great flood and few have been prominent throughout history. Once The Greene Knight served as a Knight of the Round Table for King Arthur and was instrumental in the colonisation efforts of Space Britain on Algernon.
The naacal have extra cells within their bodies that produce magic, allowing the application of magic even without the use of aether. These cells are passed down through their genes. Specifically their magic allows them to manipulate and create plant life in all manner of forms[Pan 1].
The Kingdom of Mu
The Kingdom of Mu was once a powerful nation on Earth, long before the rise of humanity. However, their kingdom was desolated in a great flood and the naacals were forced to retreat to new lands - specifically to Asia. There they dwelt in the forests, mostly avoiding contact with other species[Pan 1].
