The world of Dimentiara is not only home to Kreatures, but to a number of intelligent species, each with its own niche and cultural traits.

Humans

A race of bipedal omnivorous primates. The humans of Dimentiara are the survivors of the “Dimentiara Exodus”, a multicultural population of extra-dimensional explorers who managed to escape before their home world was destroyed in a nuclear war. Most humans these days are descended from Mass Produced Humans that were grown in factories to boost the population; certain individuals have inherited strange eye or hair colours as a result. Though physically frail compared to even the weakest Kreatures, humans have been able to thrive in Dimentiara thanks to their ability to live almost anywhere and breed at any time of the year (to the point where they now outnumber sapient non-humans by a wide margin.)

Duhdorians

The second-most numerous sapient species in Dimentiara after humans. They were formerly a fierce warrior race, but have since embraced a more peaceful lifestyle. Though they are technologically advanced, Duhdorian tradition is steeped in nature worship. They live in villages of nest-pods built high in the treetops of old-growth forests and they alone have the ability to mindlink with Kreatures naturally. Thus, Duhdorians were the first Kreature Tamers, and Kreature Combat was invented by Duhdorian warriors as a way to sharpen their skills.

Silarcs

A subterranean serpentine species who live in underground cities powered by geothermal energy. They invented the Tamer Amulets which can allow anybody to mindlink with a Kreature. Silarcs are not sexually dimorphic and therefore have no concept of gender roles, nor have they ever had religion due to their inherently empiricist outlook. Silarcs metamorphose from vicious non-sapient larvae called “Caelings”, and though adult Silarcs are terrestrial, they can't tolerate prolong exposure to dry heat so they wait until night to come above ground. Despite appearances they're not blind; their eyes are merely hidden behind a one-way face plate.

Dolneans

These semi-aquatic people are Dimentiara's smallest demographic due to their long lifespans and correspondingly low reproductive rate. Though having a raw intellect equivalent to any of Dimentiara's other sapient races, the majority of Dolneans live in simple communes next to lakes and rivers. Instead of inventing their own technology they've been content to mostly reverse-engineer whatever they need. Dolneans are known for their rich oral tradition, with an emphasis on history. They walk on all fours but can use their tails as a tripod so they can work with their hands.
