Deva is a player character race in Dungeons & Dragons 4th edition as one of the races in the second Player's Handbook. They are known as "Aasimar" in other editions of Dungeons & Dragons.

Racial traits[]

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 Resistance: You have a resistance to necrotic damage and radiant damage equal to a moderate number + 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.

  • 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.
