Lunadrin

"Don't you elves ever get tired of the constant night?" asked Windell

“Don’t you ever get tired of a daily cycle?” Asked the Patriarch of Mondomiri.

In order to adapt to their favored high-rising buildings, lunadrins have gained signature clawed hands that still have a humanoid shape. These innate tools help them scale their buildings quickly and without too much of a risk for falling.

Civilization and Culture

Major Language Groups and Dialects

Lunadrin are known to speak mostly Sylvan but some also speak Elvish and Undercommon.

Common Etiquette Rules

  • Never get yourself into trouble you never started.
  • Never try to ire a drow or eladrin. They are uneasy with us enough.

Common Dress Code

One of the quickest sights one sees with lunadrin clothing is how sharp their clothing is. It replicates a lot of gothic aesthetic where the women have white bushy hair propped up. The men often wear attire similar to Calvorans but with their own sharper twist to it.

Culture and Cultural Heritage

The signature part of the lunadrin's culture is its architecture. Many spiring buildings sprinkle around the city as if it's a race to reach the glowing moon above. Clocktowers shine from the lighting within them.

History

The Youngest in the Elven Family

Lunadrin were first developed in the middle of when eladrin and drow society were separated after a severe cave in. While digging around massive cavern networks, the drow discovered a surface in Elvarid. The only complication is that no one knew where they were in a strange land of permanent night. Some of the drow decided to stay behind and lavish being somewhere else than in the rocks. Overtime, these drow that stayed behind would evolve into the lunadrin as they built structures tall towers and spires.

Spectators of the War

Gilbrethor, the former ruler of Mondomiri, kept the Night City out of the Necromantic War. He had a suspicion that Arkengrath's power would be used to obliterate what he sought to be wretched and he tried to spare the commoners from that wrath. History would prove him right for the lunadrin still stand with little repercussion from the fighting.

With the Arkonian Order's defeat at the first Battle of Vrexen, the lunadrin are still considered to be part of the Feydom. Their voice, however, is a mere whisper compared to the Drow and Eladrin. That is why their existence or influence is heard of very litte.
