Excerpt from Needaimus Guide – Classifications and Types

The Nonpareil of Resh (Act 1)

Needaimus can be categorized into a variety of classes. The type cannot be identified by any distinguishing features and instead must be provided by the Needaimus. A project is currently underway to identify all known Needaimus and list their classifications in a database.

The types of Needaimus are as follows: Surri, Garku, Saient, Tenmont, Iki, Kishop, and Oneur. Seven in total. Knowing which type your Needaimus is will assist in accessing the full range of abilities available.

To briefly cover each type:

Surri: From the Bentulousian word for war, combat, and fighting. This type features capabilities tailor-made for battle. Historically it was considered the most atrocious type in peacetimes and the most ideal type during strife.

Garku: From the Zenotote word for travel and movement. This is an excellent type for salespeople and others who go great distances. It is often favored by civilian mortals but considered one of the weaker types by soldiers.

Saient: From the Hobusian word for construction, building, and manufacturing. This type was made for assisting hard workers in factory or construction settings. Having a mortal with a Saient Needaimus can improve production tenfold.

Tenmont: from the Zenotote word for study and research. This type provides unique tools for inquisitive minds to enhance study greatly. Unfortunately, this type can be the most difficult to apply, and many Tenmont are difficult even to use in their intended application.

Iki: from the Aqueenian word for cleanliness or shine. This type is great for at-home uses and is most commonly found among ordinary citizens. It tends to be the weakest one of all types by soldiers.

Kishop: From the Zenotote word for medicine and healthcare. This type excels in hospital settings but has also found uses by medics in combat.

Oneur: from the Zenotote word for odd, strange. This type is an open category in which anything that does not fit into other categories is placed. There is an ongoing debate as to whether more categories are needed to obsolete the Oneur or if the class should remain as is. This guide does not seek to participate in that discussion and recommends individual research.
