Tiste means Servant, and was the name given to the first race created by Jrova to inhabit Heaven. Few of this blood remain, as many were killed during the war in Heaven. As the Tiste began taking sides their children became more like unto those they served. They tend to follow the doctrine of either Jrova or Hrova, acting in the highest positions under them. The Tiste are known for having multiple wings, heads, and even limbs.
The Tiste have all the powers that both the Longa and Hora share in common. However, such powers are more powerful, and nearly primal in nature. In addition, these beings of a high nature have the ability to command, and summon, the presence of Longa, and Hora; depending on whose side they are on.
