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

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 between the heaven and earth, as the "Life" are vastly more powerful than the "Creatures". All races were created by the Old Deus, except Immanity and Demonia.

No cross-breeding between races is observed in Disboard. However, it is possible to breed an offspring using a piece of soul from another race, which is how Laira gave birth to Sora's daughter. Jibril and the Ex-Machina mentioned they could reproduce in similar ways as well.
