The Sildansi were a race of shapeshifters who lived in the land of Akira. In their rarely seen true form, they had humanoid silver skin and golden eyes. They frequently wore black or white robes, which were made of a special fabric which would change with them. They carried magical staffs as weapons.
Of all the races of Akira, the Sildansi were the ones most connected to its magical power, which gave them their shapeshifting abilities.
