ArenaNet's races spotlights took a brief hiatus following Norn Week, but conventions do tend to get in the way, so we'll be understanding. Also, kicking off the spotlights again with charr makes us happy.
Aesthetically, the charr are a stark contrast to the sylvari, adopting a heavily industrialized look of metal and fire. To the humans of Ascalon, charr aren't exactly the first race that comes to mind when forming alliances, but centuries into the future, new threats serve to suture old wounds. On the flip side, the charr are held in high regard by the solitary norn, due to the cat-people's highly militaristic culture.
Within the charr are four different factions, all vying for power over their brethren as the Elder Dragons threaten the entire world.
