Founded by Elviarn, the first-born, the Elviani found their home along the northern coast to the east of the mountains near growing human settlements. Finding a purpose in helping maintain peace among their contentious human neighbors, they honed their skills in the element of Spirit.
As time passed, they began to resemble their human neigbors more. Their skin remained fair, but it lost its marble quality and their hair changed from white to the yellows of gold, sunlight, or wheat.
The second-born, Merandene, took her people to the western of the two islands south of the continent where she found hostile Water Elementals dwelling. After these sirens of the surrounding ocean kidnapped her love, she contested them in battle, freeing him and winning her people the right to stay. After that, a love affair with the ocean rose among her people and the element of Water became their strength.
They took the name Merandi as their hair changed to the blues and greens of the sea and their paleness changed to pearl and corral.
