Spider-kin weavers (colored)

"Look what I caught for dinner" (player controlled)
"Looks like someone wandered into a not-so-friendly neighborhood" (enemy)

The spider-kin are a race reviled by many and understood by few. What they lack in brute strength, they make up with agility and cunning. They say those who are foolish enough to trip on their webs are doomed to a gruesome death.

Element: Shadow

1 hit - Will shoot a web overhead and will make a swinging kick towards the enemy
2 hit - same as 1 attack, but after the kick, it is followed by a midair slash.
3 hit combo - same as two hit combo, but after landing from the slash, the spider-kin then makes one more pounce towards the enemy.
5 hit combo - Using web to propel himself towards the enemy, the spider-kin then zips around the enemy, attacking him while leaving a web trail, forming a pattern of a magic circle and then makes it explode.

FIrefly-kin firestarter (colored)

"I love the smell of magefire in the morning"
"You can't take the sky from me."

Born with sacs that create a mysterious flame known only as magefire, the firefly kin are dangerous beings that one should never trifle with. The constant exposure to the magefire affects their thinking process, making them as aggressive, reckless, and destructive as the very essence of fire themselves. Most citizens tend to stay away from these crazed pyromaniacs only to have them raze entire villages in their many bouts of inebriation.

1 hit: flying charge towards the enemy that leaves a glowing red trail
2 hits: flying charge and point blank fireball. also has the same glow trail
3 hit combo: charges up both hands with fire and tackles the enemy while pummeling him.
5 hit combo: charges up a giant ball of fire and tackles the enemy and releases the fire at point blank, releasing a torrent of flame.

Odanata-kin hunterscouts (colored)

"Gravity, it's not just a good idea, it's the law."
"Looks like I'm gonna need a wingman."

The odanata-kin are well renowned for birthing out many of the best fliers in the country. As most younglings are brash and cocky in their youth, those who make it through the perilous ordeal all undergo upon earning their wings have earned nerves of steel tempered by the fires of danger that they face as they work day to day as hunters, warriors, and messengers.

Element: Energy

1 hit: Flies through enemy, damaging him.
2 hits: flies back and forth through the enemy, dealing damage.
3 hit combo does a spinning dive towards the enemy, hitting him thrice.
5 hit combo: Slams the enemy with his tail and flies through them multiple times while they're in midair.

Mantis-kin blade warrior

"My skills are as sharp as my blade"
"I do not wish to fight you, but you forced my hand- er- I meant my sickles."

Despite their intimidating scythes, the mantis-kin are a race of peaceful gatherers who use their blades for agricultural purposes. Despite such passive demeanor, when backed into a corner, the mantis-kin know full well to put their scythes to deadly use. Such as when they single handedly turned the tides during the six year war.

element: neutral

1 hit: dashes towards the enemy making a downward slash with both sickles
2 hits: same as 1 hit except the slash is followed by an outward slash with both sickles
3 hit combo: The mantis-kin readies his sickles in a pouncing position and then jumps towards the enemy whilst spinning around with his sickles.
5 hit combo: After assuming a combat pose, the mantis-kin flash steps through his enemy, apparently striking him five times but so fast it isn't visible and the enemy takes the damage after the flash step.

Decepticon Buzzshock

While most decepticons handle situations by comparing who has the biggest gun, who makes the most noise, who blows up the most amount of autobots, buzzshock would rather take do reconnaissance duty. With reflexes faster than a fly, buzzshock can travel at breakneck speed in his speedbike mode and maneuver through heavy anti air flight in his recon drone drone form. Armed with his twin shock repeaters, buzzshock can easily slip through enemy defenses and unload a world of hurt from the inside.

Moth-kin Night Assassin

Rumors tell of walking death that stalks the night. A hunter as mysterious as the dark side of the moon. Wherever his shadow falls upon, death swiftly follows. The nigh assassins of the moth-kin are an elite group of killers whose powder stored in their wings contain a lethal poison that only they are immune to. Preferring to take contracts from dead drops, they say the only time one can ever truly see them is when their shadow makes a mark on the ground, and even then, no one has ever lived to tell the tale.
