The Nange people, often known as the Children of the Sun, are a people that they were made from a marriage of the earth and the sun itself. They live a semi-nomadic lifestyle, but support their quasi-military camps by hiring themselves to otherwise occupied governments as border guards and mercenaries, not particularly caring about the politics involved in wars. The nange are not a cruel people, and do not engage in looting and pillaging outside of what has been contractually agreed upon by their employers and their own ancient traditions. They disdain agriculture and are indifferent hunters, though they will work as laborers if there is too much peace in an area. This condition usually means a move to more turbulent areas, where work can be more easily obtained. Nange prefer their own race as company, and rarely mix with others in military units; they usually work in standard units called a “codon” of three nange combatants, usually of the magus, fighter, and bloodrager professions.

Legends of the nange claim that their ultimate ancestor was fathered upon Gerana, Lady Justice, by Linium, the Forgefather. The followers of both deities in the Clockwork Lands and the Middle Kingdoms deny this claim, and the nange are not welcome there, though they live mostly on the true-Porphyran outskirts of the former nation. They once inhabited the jungles there, from whence their hatred of spiders comes.
