The 16 races, represented by cookie

The Ixseed (十六種族(イクシード), Ikushīdo) refers to the 16 sentient races of Disboard whom the Ten Pledges apply to. They are ranked based on their affinity to magic.

No mixing across races is observed in Disboard. The top 6 races are regarded as "Life" (生命, Seimei) and "Living beings" while the bottom 10 races are regarded as "Creatures" (生物, Seibutsu) and "Living things". The split between the top 6 and bottom 10 races represent the difference of heaven and earth, as the "Life" are vastly more powerful than the "Creatures". All races were created by the Old Deus, except Imanity.

The Flügel reside in Avant Heim, the Elves reside in Elven Gard, the Werebeasts reside in the Eastern Federation, the Seirens, as well as the Dhampir, reside in Oceando, the Dwarves reside in Harden Fell, and the Imanity reside in Elchea. The names of the other countries which the rest of the races reside have yet to be revealed.
