Notable characters Elinu

"Innocent waifs on the outside, immortal spirits on the inside, imminent defeat to the other side."

The elins of Pora Elinu are one of the seven races in The Exiled Realm of Arborea.

Known for their feminine appearance, elins feature unique tails and ears and an almost childlike demeanor even though they may be thousands of years old. The elins are not to be underestimated, as their knowledge greatly surpasses that of the average person. They united with the poporis in order to stop and restore peace with anything harmful to nature.

Official description Edit

"The elins have one driving goal: if it’s not good for nature, stop it. Older and wiser than they appear, they join with forces of nature and mortal races to sweep their enemies from the battlefield. Their speech is often dark, forthright, and otherworldly, and their sense of humor can border on vicious. Other races find the elins' manner and behavior off-putting."[1]

History Edit


Regardless where they live, the elins will not tolerate anything that goes against nature. Popolion will be the first stop at peace.

"Building corporeal forms around tiny fragments of her own divine being, the goddess Elinu created the elins. Their physical appearance reflected the youngest daughter of Arun's naïve desire for beauty and peace. An elin queen governs both the elins and the poporis, with whom they share a history and a mission. The queen and her forces have proven their wisdom and diplomatic prowess in peace, and their tactical and fighting prowess in war."

Elins today Edit

"Both the elins and poporis champion the cause of nature, but the bond between them is deeper than that. As a single nation they repair, protect, and preserve the world they live in and love above all else. The popori nation was among the first to join the federation. Recognizing the Argon Invasion to be a threat to all nature, the elin queen promptly rallied all of her forces, popori and elin, to the cause."

Capital city: Pora Elinu Edit


Pora Elinu.

"Pora Elinu is not a large city, being wholly contained inside the trunk of a single tree, but it holds a large place in the elins' hearts. Pora Elinu stands as a tribute to the goddess and a pledge to always pursue her goals. When the elin queen has to deal with matters of state, she and her court are found in Pora Elinu, but usually she leads her forces in combat on the argon front."
