There are several different types of lightbeasts, the two most common being the Kalina and the Orthae. These creatures were created in the Light Realm to rule over it, the two different primary types created to work together. These beasts have complete control over light magic and excel at cleansing the mind and healing magic.

Kalina lightbeast:: Like the Mori shadowbeasts, the Kalina lightbeasts resemble animals described as being a mix of bird, deer, horse and dragon. Though sharing many of the same qualities of the Mori, they have feathered wings, part being ethereal planes of light more for look than real flying. All are white-colored with gold instead of black with night-blue.
Orthae lightbeast:: The Orthae lighbeast is much like the Olath shadowbeast. However, instead of long horns they have feathered frills much like that of the Kalina, and part of their wings are also planes of light.
Other:: The lesser lightbeasts are plainly creatures made of light; many have no personalities or a solid thought process, and many die within days of creation - born or otherwise.
Tactics;; The lightbeasts' story is similar to that of the shadowbeasts; created as scions of light, they were born in and rule over the Lightrealm, the divine Orthae and Kalina working together to pull those of other species into the light. They are not against taking a mate of other, 'lesser' species, though no Orthae has yet done such a thing. In addition, the Kalina lightbeasts are the only ones who have ventured away from their traditional homeland, and are the ones who bring those of other species who are pure of heart into the blessed Realm of Light.
Abilities;; Lightbeasts hold complete control over light magic, and even some celestial bodies. they excel at illusions and healing magic, as well as the cleansing of the mind. Many travel to the living Realms in different guises, hiding as glowing birds or little light dragons, those that hold the power to craft a believable illusion and sustain it over their original form. An older lightbeast may also have limited control over emotional urges and influence some actions. The mental capacity for the power needed to do this, however, are very rare, and very taxing.
