Samsaran are a humanoid race with pale blue skin, solid white eyes, and dark hair. Their personalities seem to be a mixture of being old and wise, and this is often true as they keep reincarnating every time they die where they get a chance to do better.

Keeping some of their memories, although more like half-forgotten dreams, they try to live a simple life where most things could be continued in the next life cycle. They can have human children, though some can reincarnate as a Samsaran.

Seeking self-reflection and knowledge, they pass through communities, towns, and cities, often choosing one of them to settle down for a more stable life. They also keep their names which can became known, names like Bakji, Walu, and Zonja.
