Island aumaua are a sub-race of aumaua in Pillars of Eternity and Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Origin and prevalence[edit | edit source]

Island Aumaua originated in the Deadfire Archipelago a thousand miles south of the Vailian Republics. Though still uncommon in the Dyrwood and surrounding environments, island aumaua are more commonly encountered there than coastal aumaua, who are quite rare. When encountered around the Dyrwood, they are often laborers, fishermen, or sailors.

Appearance and culture[edit | edit source]

While physiologically similar to their coastal cousins, the coloration of island aumaua is starkly different - brown and yellow.

From the Pillars of Eternity Guidebook: Volume One:

  • Features: Higher body fat (relative to coastals, not in general) very wide nose bridges, and widely spaced eyes. Round or square faces. Upturned or prominent eyes with epicanthic folds. Long skulls with prominent domes. Hair does not grow on the crown of the head. Slightly webbed hands and feet (below the second knuckle). Long arms. Tiny ears that barely protrude from the head
  • Skin: Warm tones, often brown or yellow running into (fish-like) white.
  • Hair: Clay-red, copper, green-brown, brown, black. Wavy or kinky texture.
  • Eyes: Yellow, silver, blue, copper, hazel.

In-game description[edit | edit source]

Island aumaua originated in the Deadfire Archipelago and have largely remained there over the millennia. While physiologically similar to their coastal cousins, the coloration of island aumaua is starkly different - warm tones, contrasting the coastal's cool blues and green. While not all island aumaua are connected to the native Huana culture of the Deadfire, it is rare to find them in the Eastern Reach, much less the Old Empires.
