The population of Aether is highly diverse, thanks to more than one fallen allied kingdom needing to come stay in their borders. As a result, there are many races but they all live by the rules of the Kingdom of Aether. This does not meal all the species are treated as equals. In fact many of them are seen as lesser or even savage as in the case of the Nazcan. Aetherians are not entirely xenophobic but they do pride themselves on their pedigree, specifically the nobility.

The two races that are the most beloved of the Aetherians are the Keise and the Ryuko. Both have shown their friendship multipliable times in either offering innovation and technological advancement or as military allies. Both races have been housed by Aether. The race that Aetherians deem as 'equals' but begrudgingly is the Pairans. They are their people's opposites. The Phairans embrace sensuality and are more female dominated as a society. They are also far more wealthy in gems and precious metals.
