Home to only a hand full of Elf kind, the Island of the Ancients is home to the original members of the Elven race. 6 of them still live, and they have chosen to seclude themselves from the rest of their kin in order to prevent mass destruction.
The "Ancients" as they are refered to by the other Elven races, are the most knowledable beings to ever walk on Valcarta aside from the Knightblade's and Vilespirit's. Gathering the knowledge of the gods themselves, the ancients were able to create devices and call upon Fay in more ways than most people can fathom in this current age. Because of this, the Elf kind were originally feared. Large armies of humans and other races that couldn't comprehend the Elves power took up arms against them, and backed them into this lonely island. Before locking themselves away within a magical barrier, the elves decides to birth several sub-races. These new elves would later come to be called the Fomors, the Faywielders and the Snow Elves, each gifted with a particular talent that they Ancient's themselves have had for so long.
No one has heard from nor seen an Ancient in several thousand years, many think they are dead, others believe they watch of us, making sure we do not step out of line.
