While Erudites put a great emphasis on developing their intellect and researching the Arcane, they seek knowledge and enlightenment rather than power and status. The Erudites refuse to be influenced by the temptations of their research and a great many who chose to study forbidden texts on necromancy and black magics were banished and established a separate sect in the city now known as Paineel.
Though those who were banished study dark and what may be considered evil magics, Erudites are not an evil race. They have no respect for the Ogres and Trolls and dislike the methods and beliefs of the Dark Elves. Many spend a great deal of time and effort on reflection and meditation and despite a superior attitude and serious demeanour, are often intelligent and wise. Erudites understand the boundaries of keeping a civilised society and while they prefer not to socialise with those outside their own race, are quite capable of interacting on good terms with others. Erudites often befriend those who become their companions on quests and expeditions but tend to have a harder time in understanding the Barbarians and Dwarves.
Erudites as a whole are perhaps the most magical of all the known races, every example of their race has at least a little control over the magical forces and it is rare for them not to have a sound knowledge of the Arcane. Erudites are not found in any of the more physical professions and though Erudite Paladins and Shadowknights are not unheard of it is far more common to see an Erudite Enchanter, Mage, or Wizard.
Erudites, in a similar fashion to the High Elves, believe themselves to be intellectually superior to the other races and are often disliked, at least at first because of this attitude. While naturally very intelligent, they are only by experience a wise people and are often unforgiving and even inconsiderate of those they may consider a 'lesser' being. Their pursuit of knowledge and enlightenment is perhaps the only real religion that all Erudites follow with total dedication but they are known to worship many of the 'good' and 'neutral' dieties.
