Noble in spirit and full of grace, the High Elves of the land move with an
assured stride seen only in those who have lived long enough to have learned
the true lessons of the world. Poised and rational by nature, they are
uncommonly wise, not beyond their years, but because of them. Each day of
their youth spent in lesson and selfless nurturing of their own kind, now
brought to fruitition in an ascended elven status as a Valeodien, for no elf
may be born High. Real wisdom is hard earned.

And yet their lessons do not end there, as no lesson should. The Valeodien
are the Lorekeepers of the realm. It is said that they may learn the Tales
of the World, and later recite them so that what has gone before is not
forgotten. Their voices are powerful, and it is said that their enunciation
fortifies all knowledge. To hear a Valeodien speak is to know the world as
it was meant to be, and to know each of our own places within it.

Longest lived of the races, they age very slowly, even when compared to other
elves. They are tall, and delicate in appearance, and yet strong from within.
They are charismatic folk, and while they are great users of magic, they shun
the use of chaotic, psionic or purely destructive magic.

Bonded to their homeland in a manner far more intricate than that of their
other elven kin, the Valeodien live and breathe the seasons themselves. The
cold touch of Colus, the warm breezes of Tauri, each in turn has a personal
effect on a High Elf, and that effect is most easily seen upon those which
have utilized their innate ability to learn beyond normal learning. They are
Those who through introspection have found the key with which to unlock their
own souls from the bonds of normal maximums and mortal limitations.
