The wandering tunnels and large caverns of Káto
hide many secrets, from creatures that have never seen the sun, to twisted magic that flows through from the Lost Paths
, all things that most are not strong enough to handle. Those that call these bleak areas home must be stronger than most, of both body and mind. Miners
, and Adventurers
wander, but it is the Warriors
, the Silver Elves that live here permanently and excel about the creatures that wish to expel them.
Similar to their surface-dwelling brethren, Silver Elves choose to call the darkness of Káto
their home. Their role in the Eldritch War
is considered to be one of the more gruesome yet in many ways they were more prepared than most of the races in Isekai. The Silver Elf cities and their militaristic mindsets ensured their survival against the horrors that grew in strength during the war. To an outsider, they would appear to have lost little, if anything during the war. The Silver Elves have long been the strongest race in Káto
and they fought for that title. Since they have existed, they have acted as guardians and Hunters
of the tunnels and caverns deep below Isekai where they encounter beings of Eldritch
origin on a daily basis.
Currently, Silver Elves live throughout Káto
and can be found as nomadic travelers throughout the world as oddities. There are many places that may be unfamiliar with Silver Elves except by name or through stories as they are considered rare and somewhat mystical or exotic if not feared or respected. One of the most powerful organizations of Silver Elf society is known as the Parallel Monastery
, here a variety of Monks
are trained separately from the rest of Silver Elf society and they are considered elite beyond even weapon masters of the ruling houses of Silver Elf cities and is the closest thing to a capital or uniting structure that exists in Silver Elf society. Silver Elves from the Parallel Monastery
are called Ishtin Kex
. Both are feared and considered cursed by most of Silver Elf society for their power and training methods.
