The Aerians are one of the various Beast-Men races created by the Ancient Atlanteans long ago as slaves. They are humanoid beings with large feathered wing and avian physiology allow them to fly. The Aerians are a multi-colored people, with their skin and their matching feathers. They are located in the Aerie Shalan on a stone pillar high above Pangea. They are ruled by a technocracy, led by a chief scientist Lord M'Dom Typ. Their technology level advanced than the rest of the human race as they utilise the long abondend Atlantean technology.


The Aerians are allies of Ka-Zar and Shanna the She-Devil when they visited the Pangea region of the Savage Land. They helped them in their war with their fellow winged counter-parts the reptilian Pterons.

Aerian like most societies is not perfect as many of its members have attempted coups in the past, including Khup and Sep who was working with Queen Leanne of Lemuria.

Non flying visitors to Shalan are allowed Pink-furred Skites to ride or outfitted with artificial wings.
