The Alethi: A race of people from before the Fall who are held in awe by the people of Scalacia. The Alethi purportedly controlled an empire that spanned the entire breadth of Itania and many of their monuments remain. They are said to have wielded powerful magics the likes of which mages of the modern era are incapable.
Kelarnith: A scholar and explorer during the first century before the founding of Diagros by the Magi families. Kelarnith is credited, in part, with helping rediscover magic. This discovery helped the Magi families unite the disparate Diagrosan clans and form of the present day’s mightiest countries.
