Many centuries ago, the highlanders' ancestors cursed their brothers, who betrayed them, and left the lands of their forefathers forever, led by their chieftain, Berengar. These people of the Clans, who settled in faraway and inaccessible mountains, had to temper both their bodies and spirits in a struggle to survive. The highlanders' memory faded with years, but their fierce hatred towards the people of the forests and plains is still alive.
The elves, or Firstborn, were created by the god, Nuadu. From time immemorial, they have protected the world from Darkness, eradicating its creatures all over Arinar and healing the wounds caused by it. For a long time after the War of the Spear, the elves never left their forests, avoiding contact with other peoples. However when a new menace, the Legion, appeared to threaten the world, the Firstborn began preparing to protect the world's balance once more.
