 Over-Category: Esthephage 
 Kingdom: Kami 
Esthephages do not “eat” in the traditional since as biophages; however, they still have a need to consume from an energy source to maintain the vigor and life energies of their lifesong. That source is forms of emotional feelings and social ambiance.
A kami is a non-corporeal being in service of the gods, though usually very indirect. Often they are called spirits; however, some fey creatures are also called spirits. Kami have very long lifespans lasting hundreds, sometimes thousands, of years. Most spirits are transparent and many invisible.
Kamii do not eat per se, but they have their life forces vitalized by communications between deities and mortals. Quite often the kamii are part of the conversation. This is not quite the same as worship or emotional energy needed by celestials; instead, kamii feed off the existence of the conversation itself.
There are two phyla of the kamii: apothetarian and boramey. Apolthetarian kamii inhabit all things, including forces of nature and prominent landscape locations. Mostly, these spirits handle the busy work of a deity’s schedule. The boramey spirits are supernatural entities whose purpose is to bond with a mortal’s lifesong. Through this connection, the boramey feeds upon the energies of the host. A result of the integration of life forces, the host gains observable changes. Depending on the type of kamii that latches itself to the being, it might be a beneficial symbiosis. However, some of the boramey combinations are parasitic and lethal.

Samas, Soil (Apothetarian)

When willing oneself visible, a soil samas looks a lot like an 18-inch-long earthworms. One might mistake the creature for a baby indus worm or perhaps a giant centipede. However, a bluish hues glows about their translucent forms. Due to its incorporealness, the samas does requires a magical weapon blade to harm. Encountering a soil samas is often an experience to remember. They are pranksters of the spirit world, and able to accomplish a great deal quickly by manipulating the soil. For instance, a patch of ground can be turned to a pit of quick sand in a matter of a minute. A tree can be made to collapse in even less time. Likely they mean no real harm, but the spirits are not quite smart enough to ensure the safety of their targets. However, if angered the creatures are quite capable of turning their powers fully offensive.
These spirits do much of the hands on work of the plains emis. They enrich the soils using minerals bought from the elemental plane of earth. They also maintain borders between deserts and plains. Forest emis often employ them as well to their forests healthy. On occasion they are even commanded to the elemental planes of fire or water to help the elementals there. These kamii are also capable of degrading soil rather than enhancing it, but they are rarely called on to do so. Generally their work is intended to promote the expansion of civilization into new areas, or to keep it from leaving.
