Elves

As lethal and fickle as the element that birthed them, Elves, also called Pierens, are a volatile and imperialistic race. The most active slavers in Kedrana, it is fairly common to run into elvish raiding parties and caravans in the Balance. They are also notorious collectors, hoarding objects of wealth, beauty, exquisite craftsmanship, and extraordinary magic. This magpie-like tendency also extends to their slaves, who they view as little better than other trinkets to be taken. Elves can be cruel and tyrannical taskmasters, but also are very protective of their valuable assets. Many slaves can find more than a comfortable existence working in the extravagant elvish cities as a valued house possession, and many others can lead a wretched, squalid, and ultimately short life slaving in choking forges, inhospitable climates, or dens of vice. Hedonistic and debauched to the extreme, there is nothing that cannot be bought, sold, or stolen within the borders of Pierentia. Wild elves tend to live on the outskirts of the nation, in the deserts, badlands, and wastes scattered across it’s expanse, or in transient caravans. Pewter elves make up the bulk of the city-dwellers, and also often serve as soldiers, something that appeals to their rigid and militaristic nature. The Khafri are the nobles, the house leaders, the plotters and schemers, and the insidious malice behind the law. They pride their blood and superiority over all else, setting alight infants born to them to ensure the continuing purity of their bloodlines. The elvish caste system is represented by the masks worn in public by members of the race. Wild elves shape their masks from organic materials, bone, wood, feathers, skins and the like. Pewter elves don ornate metal masks complete with fine inlays or precious gems. Khafri wear masks of purest porcelain, combining materials used by Pewter or Wild elves to accentuate their rank. Most of these masks display features of some kind, either in imitation of the wearer or someone they seek to emulate or curry favor with, or of a monster or elemental of some kind, one that perhaps represents their house or values. The complexity of each individual mask denotes rank within the given caste.
