The Races of Aradath ...

USIL ELVES

Introduction ...

Only in knowledge can true strength be found. Such is the path of the Usil. Seekers of knowledge, the Usil Elf is by far one of the most intelligent of all races in Dragonís Gate. Centuries of the Usilís dedication to scholastic pursuit reveals itself in the countless libraries, schools, and museums that exist across todayís known world. However, Usilin accomplishment goes far beyond that of their pedagogic achievements. Indeed, Usil Elves have utilized their keen intellectual abilities to succeed in other areas such as magick, history and lore, cryptography, and many others as well. This race lays claim to having produced some of the most renowned Magi and Sages ever known to exist.

Background ...

The race has spread far from their homeland of Elidan, and now settlements may be found in most parts of the world. It is believed the largest community of Usilin currently exists in the White Forest, at the western end of the Great Waste. With few noted exceptions, they have remained uninvolved, however present, in the momentous events of history, preferring to present themselves as unbiased observers.

Interestingly, history reveals that the Usil Elves, in a single aberrant event, are one of the few races that have ever stood successfully in armed battle against a Frontacian army during the height of the Frontacian Empire. It is believed this is the reason that the majority of the race somehow escaped the grasp of Frontacian reign.
