The Iyr, Part 1

The Iyr
The Iyr appear through gates torn through the fabric of the dimensions, clawing for territory in the Prime Material Plane (or equivalent). Their invasions are led by a Priemarchos, based on limited translation of their language, but nothing is known of their leadership above that level: the gates last for too short a time for exploration at this time.
Iyr Prielia
Iyr Prielia are the frontline fighters of the Iyr invasions, bound in translucent, whitish crystal armor, and armed with Sunslivers or Psychespears. They fight by taking advantage of their mobility, and avoid use of static defenses.

Iyr Orincepsis 

The Orincepsis are gifted with nightmarish psionic powers, running through the conductive crystal of their disproportional heads. Instead of purely destructive abilities, their mental abilities manifest through manipulation, confusion, and control. They are sent out as infiltrators, in the first wave of an invasion. However, because of the short time they can disguise themselves, they are often reclusive, and act strangely.
