Physical Description: Vada look very much like Humans and are almost indistinguishable, with a few exceptions: almost all Vada have blonde hair, green or blue eyes and have a distinguishable accent among them when they speak. Some other hair and eye colors have been noted from time to time. Vada have dim glowing eyes that tend to match the color of their eye coloring.

Society: Vada seem to revolve their entire society and beliefs around magic, with the leaders of their settlements and cities always being some form of arch-mage or very powerful caster. There are, however, some Vada that do not use the art of magic and choose to practice martial professions instead.

Relations: Vada tend to get along with most races, but usually butt heads with Elves, having a different view of how magic should be used and practiced. Most elves see them as abusers of their ability to cast magic and believe they have no moderation when it comes to its use; nothing is forbidden to a Vada. Outsiders tend to deeply insult Vada with the term "gloweye," "dandelion," or other dandy-ish comments and insults.

Alignment and Religion: The personality of a Vada tends to differ from individual to individual, much like a human. Most Vada are agnostic.

Adventurers: Vada who take up adventuring are usually looking for some new knowledge or a particular forgotten lore. It is not normally arcane topics that lead a Vada to explore, but some random question to their secondary field of knowledge. A Vada interested in cheese-making who hears of a new kind of cheesecloth, or one who has studied cobbling who seeks a unique style of boot simply must seek the provenance of this new marvel, even if its hundred of miles away. Not many Vada go on adventures for fame, wealth or glory; it's usually stereotyped that Vada whom fall under this category are unable to cast magic.Vada are usually wizards,sorcerers or machinesmiths however its not uncommon to see some take a faith and become clerics.
