A near-extinct group who could shape-shift into lions. Their strength and ferocity were legend, but their low birth-rate led to gradual vanishishing.
There are a few left who are mixed Haetae and something else, the most notable of whom is Haneul.
The haetae are one of the few among the Guardians who did not go mad in the course of the First War and sacrificed themselves protecting the world against those who lost their minds. When they saw what they considered injustice, they acted – without fail or hesitation.
Their appearance was somewhere between a lion and a dragon, and their colors ranged from grey to gold. They had one horn in the center of their foreheads.
