Shinviths are elemental spirits that reside in the in-between worlds. They are born when the balance of natural power in the world is unequal, and are meant to keep harmony. Shinvith are similar to the Grecian muses in that they only operate in one specialized ‘area’; they cannot cross that boundary without forfeiting their existence. Their homeland is originally in Brazil, in the Mantiqueira mountains, and have since spread across the world.
Natural disasters cause great waves of Shinvith births, and when things return to ‘normal’, they return to their origin home to either die, or sleep until they are needed once more. Shinviths typically sit around the 300 million mark in population across the globe, what with pollution, greenhouse emissions, and global warming becoming more prevalent.
If the Silver Surfer was defined by elements, that is what a Shinvith would look like.
The Shinvith are all a part of one family – one tribe, spread across the world. Their hometree, located in the Mantiqueira mountains, hosts over 20 million Shinviths; the rest reside in places like sacred Indigenous grounds, Aboriginal lands, temple groves and gardens, and many land and nature preserves.
