    Is it just me or everything about archai just screams "FENRIS" (from Dragon Age 2)? I wonder if he really was an inspiration ... What's your take on that matter. What were yours first associations when you first saw this race?

    I first associated them with real humans and the situation they are in with the archons.

    I first equated the Archai model to PRotF's equivalence of EQ's Barbarian... (as the Skar are to the Troll and Dark Myr to the Dark Elves) with cooler looks and lore.

    I'm not sure where they were pulling inspiration from but I appreciate their unique presence in the PRotF universe. It really gives the realm its own identity as opposed to the usual humans, orcs, and elves type fantasy setting. There are a lot of similarities to Fenris given the lyrium fusion and slave background but it's hard to say if that's a coincidence. Justin was part of building up the story behind the Archai, but the team before him came up with the model/idea correct? I'm not even sure who among the original team that would've been involved in the creation of the unique races has persisted to the team today.
