Elironid

The Elironid Tribe was the earliest confirmed Ibrovinid community. It was situated in the Nuzowli Mountain Range and bordered the Kairn River System. The settlement, now called the Yitdish Ruins, existed until 22711 AYM, when it was destroyed by a flash flood.
The Elironid community functioned mostly as a semi-absolute monarchy, with the leader of the tribe, known as the Hyvamto-Re-Elironid, writing laws and declarations for the tribe; however, it was up to the Alagulo-Garifiln, aka the Council of Law, whose responsibility it was to both enact the rules of the tribes and to ensure that said rules were followed throughout the colony. All this information about the Elironidian government was gathered from various stone tablets, which are, along with other tablets, collectively called the Elironid Treatise.

Structure

The Elironid tribe consisted of 12 distinct families; the heads of 11 of these families made up the council of law. The Hyvamto-Re-Elironid, the supreme leader of the tribe, was the head of the 12th family. After the death of the Hyvamto-Re-Elironid, the power wouldn't be transferred to his children; instead, a vote would be held among the public to decide the family that would reign next.
The Hyvamto-Re-Elironid possessed the ability to make laws, with two notable exceptions; the laws could not include a death penalty, and all laws were to apply regardless of familial background. After creation, the Council of Law would review the law for at most 1 month. Any suggestions would be given to the Hyvamto and he would be given time to revamp it or scrap it altogether before sending it back to the Council.
To prevent any bias, the heads were prohibited from meeting any of the other heads, and Eovrisibb was prohibited.

Organization of the Communes

The Council and the Hyvamto lived in individual houses near the center of the tribe. These houses, called Aizuo-Re-Arzeoval, formed a ring around the Aizu-Re-Garifiln, the meeting house of the council and the Hyvamto. The territory inhabited by the public civilians is separated by family; from each Aizuo-Re-Arzeoval, rays extended to the outer walls of the tribe, essentially dividing the tribe into 12 equal segments. One family lived in each segment. As families left the tribe, the remaining tribes would decide amongst themselves on how to divide up that territory, usually among the neighboring tribes.

History

Early History

  Because of the damage caused by the flood as well as erosion and time, information regarding the early history of Elironid is sparse. Nowadays, only section 6 of the Elironid Treatise has records on this subject, with only 1/3 of them being still legible. Overall, the earliest dates recorded were on Anyrozs's coronation in 25187 AYM.
It is often agreed that the ancestors of the Elironid Tribe gathered there from other places, due to the strong presence of protection and safety in the Elironidian religion. By 25200 AYM they were most likely already gathered there. This tribal system relied heavily on intimidation and danger in its religious system to keep its population intact; the rise of speculation against this system was the main factor that led to the dispersion of the families and the spread of the Ibrovinids beyond Elironid.

Mythology & Lore

The mythology of the Elironid religion, commonly called the Elironid-Klysaw in Eldrond (literally Religion of the Elironid) is based around the existence of a group of mysterious deities called the Zar-Isyer Akwor, whose sole purpose appears to have been to torment and corrupt the Ibrovinid species. This information comes from a set of myths, which were found in the Capital.

Myth 1: Hyvam and Vasum

Long ago, the universe consisted of nothing but a dark misty substance called Hyv. Over time, this mist eventually coalesced into small, dense clumps, each colliding and mixing with each other until they all formed a large black ball of Hyv. Within all this mixing was born a sentient being called Vasum, and as more substance mixed, a second being was formed, called Hyvam. Both of them lived contently alongside each other, but both were forced to share the same body.
One day, both Vasum and Hyvam decided to split apart, so they went opposite directions and pushed on the outer walls of the ball, stretching it to such an extent so as to cause the membrane to break in various places. Suddenly, the two snapped apart, each possessing a small spherical body with several entrails from the flexibility of the membrane. These became the legs, while the point where Hyvam and Vasum each pushed became the long esophagus. Some smaller holes along the sides of each creature formed eyes, and the trace amounts of membrane and Hyv that were expelled during the explosion became the land below.
Vasum immediately began to transform the land, kneading it, pressing and pulling different sections, creating the landscape we know today. Hyvam, however, took a few clumps of Hyv from the land and pressed each of them between his hands, infusing his energy, called Imor, into them. He then threw them onto the land, and upon impact they broke into tiny little Ibrovinids. Vasum was initially happy about the introduction of these creatures; however, as they multiplied and covered the earth, Vasum found it difficult to continue molding the land without interfering with the Ibrovinids. Frustrated, he stomped on the land, sending forth a giant earthquake whose tremors, infused with Vasum's anger, corrupted any Hyv it touched and transformed them into a substance called Vas. Unlike Hyv, Vas could not support life, and so any Ibrovinids that touched the substance would immediately die, and its Imor would drain out. As the tremor traveled throughout the land, Hyvam picked a small colony of Ibrovinids and sheltered them with his legs, creating an impenetrable wall. When the tremor reached him, he absorbed the shock in its entirety, resulting in his death. His dead carcass, which was now brittle and gray, tumbled off of his legs and fell to the ground, forming the Nuzowli Mountain Range. Vasum, filled with grief, collected the Imor of all the dead Ibrovinids and gathered them in the giant crater formed by his stomp. Hyvam's Imor, meanwhile, flowed in the other direction, creating the mythical Hyvam Lake, supposedly located northward. The dead bodies of the other colonies dried into hollow shells.

Myth 2: Sieri and Netu

Around 100 years after Vasum and Hyvam, the Ibrovinid community, at this point renamed Yitdish, was thriving. Sieri and Netu were important leaders within Yitdish. One day, Sieri decided to venture out of Yitdish and went westward, encountering numerous carcasses from the earlier tremors. Upon climbing a mountain, he saw the remnants of the Akew colony, their bodies laid strewn across the steep face. However, when Sieri nudged one with his foot, the carcass began to slide downwards, bumping others along the way, as they tumbled and slid down the mountain, across the rocky plains, and finally, as they splashed into the ocean where Vasum had gathered the life force. There, rejuvenated, the cracked and dried bodies began to move, and they crawled out of the ocean, their flimsy and brittle bodies leaking Imor on all sides. This awakened other carcasses, and as they began to accumulate in droves, they went searching for additional sources of Imor.
