The language which used to be spoken in the nation of Leokolriz
before the Final War
The Leokola used to live northeast of the Zugnur Sea
and were among the oldest nations on Ranul
. Consequently, Leokolin was one of the languages which early settlers brought to the Zugderi Sea
. Many words of Rilangun
and even Zuni
can therefore be traced back to it.
As the Rilanga Union
grew in power, Rilangun became the primary trade language around the western seas on Mustik Hamesi
. Over the ages, it saw a steady increase in use for commercial documents, scientific literature and works of artistic or entertainment nature. Due to its importance, more and more people in Leokolriz
grew up bilingual, and being fluent in Rilangun became an indicator for high education.
When their government decided to enter an alliance with the Rilanga Union in 18 NZR
, use of Leokolin began to decline significantly. By the end of the war, it was mostly spoken by working class people who stayed in the cities while the elites retreated to the shelters. The fact that most of those elites were actually Rilanga immigrants meant that barely any native speakers of Leokolin survived the final wave of attacks.
