Deva is a player character race in 4th edition Dungeons & Dragons[PH2:8], known in other editions as Aasimar.

Racial traitsEdit

In appearance, devas are very similar to humans, but with an unearthly beauty and uncanny stillness about them. They are almost as tall as dragonborn, but much more slender.



  • Astral Majesty: You have a +1 bonus to all defenses against attacks made by bloodied creatures.
  • Astral Resistance: You have a resistance to necrotic damage and radiant damage equal to 5 + one-half your level.
  • Immortal Origin: Your spirit is native to the Astral Sea, so you are considered an immortal creature for the purpose of effects that relate to creature origin.
  • Memory of a Thousand Lifetimes: You can use memory of a thousand lifetimes as an encounter power.

Favored classesEdit

Race specific featsEdit

Trivia Edit

  • While Devas are 4th editions equivalents to Asimars from other editions of Dungeons and Dragons, the Samsaran race from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game based off of Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 edition, are also quite similar to Devas. They too have blue skin, go through a cycle of reincarnation, and have a closer connection to the divine than other races.
