The Nature of the Universe
Elarinya Thonben was the name I chose at my coming of age, but go by Ela to those who know me. Still fairly young at 107, I’ve ventured away from the Elven lands of the west with hopes of improving my skills in magic. Not the most graceful of elves, I spent most of my youth exploring the forest with my grandmother who taught me all I know of the natural world. I create bonds with animals easier than other people, and thus discovered my affinity for magic in nature. My village along the coast often traded valuable herbs and roots to traveling merchants of Azure City across the sea. These merchants always interested me, and I heard many stories of their travels and the world afar. Curiosity is what brought me to these lands, but the darkness that dwells here and my desire to see it extinguished is why I journey on.
