The Asura are a race of diminutive artisans who secretly dwelt below-ground for thousands of years until the minions of the Great Destroyer forced them out of their underground homes 250 years ago. Since then, they have adapted to surface life and quickly established themselves as one of the most powerful races in Tyria.
— In-game description
During character creation, (besides normal custimizations) the player must answer three "race specific" biography questions that affect their personal in-game story:
- Which Asuran college they studied at.
College of Dynamics- The members of this college are typically impulsive and enthusiastic about their work, preferring to start a project immediately rather than ponder the possible consequences. They are known for creating swift solutions to problems that only last as long as necessary. Members of the college believe that an experiment is only a failure if nothing is learned from it.
College of Statics- Members of this college are analytical and cautious, preferring to do the work right the first time and build things that last. They participate in large-scale projects such as building cities and the massive levitating stones that power them.
College of Synergetics- The members of this college study the nature of magic, politics, and social theory, among other things. Their studies of patterns and theories over concrete ideas leads them to make errors in assuming something will work before testing it. Many of them believe they have a particular insight into the sentient mind, and their insight leads to the conclusion that other people are out to get them, so members of this college are typically more distrustful and secretive than others.
- What their first successful experiment was.
- Who their first advisor was.
Once selected an Asura character will start the game off in a tutorial- Explosive Intellect where players stop the golem threat.
