Elven

Heritage of the Faene

One Heritage, Many Peoples

In Florenelle

Altallen

Elves that departed into Florenelle long ago, they were hoping to find something other than nature. Philosophy? Advancements? Something less natural to study that sparked early curiosity. They are commonly found scattered across Florenelle, especially on the Continent of Calvora and within mighty fortresses of Thracallia.

Drow

While digging around in the dirt, these former eladrin found a cave network. The only issue is that a collapse would cause a separation that would last hundreds of years. During this time, the eladrin would further dig around what is now called Undarid and evolve into the drow we know today. This new environment would stir unrest in the drow, for this environment required risk and harsh leadership for these groups to survive early on. That is why drow can be seen as arrogant to those of weak willpower.

Eladrin

The first recorded elves, they are the oldest and most in tune with the nature that they so love. Their personality can often bring a specific shade to their appearance. If they are miserable and grumpy, they take on the cold and icy aspects of winter, for instance. Being happy and joyful can often show a hue of green or floral colors to their attire. Their close ties to nature are why they can shift in various shades. Some eladrin cities often can be hot and humid when the Algid months roll in during times of turmoil or outrage.

Lunadrin

These elves are closely attuned to the dusk and night spectrums of Elvarid. They were indifferent to the Necromantic War and are rumored to have been divided on joining Arkonia or the Coalition. To this day, they are technically part of the Feydom Confederacy but their voice in the matters of politics are whispers compared to the yelling between the eladrin and drow kingdoms.

Nivallen

The first outcasted elves. Nivallen are the pale elves that stalk the woods and are notorious for watching behind the veil of leaves and branches. The eladrin would outcast them for harnessing violent aspects of nature such as storms and howling winds. The nivallen simply sought these forces as a new weapon but their eladrin cousins couldn't manipulate it as easily. Believing it to be a threat to the natural order of things, the nivallen were outcasted long ago, before the Necromantic War. They are now currently found on the continents of Thracallia and Oceania where they dwell in forests and various places overgrown in foliage.

Sadarren

The “black sheep” of the Faene elven lineage. Their close ties with the Arkonian Order and their ferocious nature has forced Orrilius’ hand to banish them from Elvarid Many of them can be found in the Shadowfell if not as stray refugees in Florenelle.
