Kalashtar and Other Races
Most kalashtar have a remarkable degree of compassion and empathy; as trite as it sounds, they really do like everyone. There are always exceptions, especially among the orphans, but the majority of kalashtar are always interested in getting to know new people. This trait reflects their natural gift for diplomacy, along with their paranoia where the Inspired are concerned. Kalashtar really do like people—but they also like to keep a very close eye on as many people as they can, to look for any signs of psionic manipulation.
While kalashtar are comfortable with people of all races, they have the most in common with elves and humans. Physically kalashtar are still very similar to humans, and the two races are sexually compatible. Emotionally and intellectually, however, kalashtar have more in common with the elves of Aerenal; the spiritual memories of a kalashtar give him a distant view on life that is similar to that of the long-lived elves.
While no particular bond exists between kalashtar and the warforged, kalashtar are fascinated by the construct race, especially the question of their souls. The mystics of the kalashtar are certain that House Cannith does not have the power to create souls, yet it is clear that the warforged possess unique souls. How can this be? Are there secrets about the warforged that even House Cannith doesn’t know?
