Human Species in Legends of Elohey | World Anvil


Children of he Sun

A mammalian species, humans are considered one of the oldest of the sapient species. The earliest records suggest that humans appeared two years after the Last War between the Ancients and the Foul Host along with dragons and treants.


Some scholars and wizards speculate that humans and dragons may have even participated in the Last War. If that is the case, it may be that humans - along with dragons and treants - may be the sole surviving sapience species from that long ago time.
