This post used to provide general worldbuilding information about Elonth, but the worldbuilding has expanded greatly since then and this post became outdated. It is now repurposed as a basic character guide and chapter index. I am in the process of setting up a wiki to store worldbuilding information, but feel free to contact me on Discord to ask any questions you might have.
This section is intended to help you remember who’s who if you’ve forgotten who a character in the story is. The sections on Mar and Irikshan also contain links to the chapters of their stories.
A blue and orange Ebonscale-Tumenzarian halfbreed. Aged 34 in 2020, his life was interrupted when his advanced ability trapped him in a coma. He was sent to the city of Tumenoord to study under the guidance of Irikshan, the head of the Raifal Mage College, who has an advanced ability thought to be similar to Mar’s.

An orange, green and yellow Tumenzarian – Irikshan has led quite an eventful life. At age 74 in 1777, he departed Tumenzar to explore the Imaadudish Empire – to learn about this foreign nation that had been conquering the human kingdoms around Tumenzar.
In 2020, at age 317, he is a renowned mage and illusionist, one of the three Elders of Tumenzar, and the head of the Raifal Mage College – a world-esteemed institution. When he is told of a young Tumenzarian with an advanced ability that shares similarities with his own, he decides to mentor the youngster.
Hatched in 1973, Zitkala is a crossbreed with Huante, Scriven, and otherworldly heritage. Her powerful knack proved troublesome in her early life, but she eventually gained control over it. She pursued her interests in electronics. Eventually, she would meet her future husband: Mar.
A white, gold and ultraviolet Scriven, Rentik grew up in Meihian – the homeland of the Scrivens, ruled jointly by them and the Meihianese humans. A few decades into her life, however, she moved to Tumenzar. Here she studied at the Raifal Mage college, where she is now the head of the Nullifications and Countermagics department.
