These asura generally act as undercover agents, but sometimes just like to live among the mortal races. An infiltrator will go to lengths to develop a mortal persona so as to fit in mortal society, and when it reaches a point where its lack of aging would betray its nature, it will move on and create a new identity. For this reason, infiltrators prefer the bodies of elves and other long lived races.
