Eleduins are the descendants of Nerah Cersalie and the Dragon Eledea. The Eleduins supposedly have the blood of dragon in them and are able to ascend into great dragons. Although the myth exists, none have actually seen a Eleduin ascending in a dragon, let alone a dragon. Still, many Eleduins believe themselves capable of turning into great dragons and even form cults dedicated in the prospect of turning into great dragons.

Unlike normal men of the North, the Eleduins are in a more slender shape and usually have blood-colored hair said to be inherited from the Dark Mother Eledea. They're supposedly more talented learner than the men. During the reigning era of the Cersalie Dynasty, many high ranking offices are only permitted to be hold by an Eleduin.

Origin[]

At the year of 485, Elvenova Calendar. Nerah Cersalie, a young human noble disocvered an unconscious woman in Northwood. He took the woman home and nurtured her to a more healthy condition, the woman woke up one day and seemed to be suffering from amnesia as she cannot remember anything. Nerah decided to keep her in his grant. Eventually, the two fell in love and later a child is given birth to. This is the first Eleduin to be known in the history, Aarderius Cersalie.

Nerah then discovered that there are weird things happening to his son: he was so much different from other children in various ways, and deforming. Nerah confronted his bride and the latter revealed herself to be a dragon hunted down by humans and elves. The dragon, Eledea, wanted revenge from the very beginning. She told Nerah that the child will bring doom upon the land. Right after her terrible prophecy, Eledea bursted into flame and before Nerah could react, only a pile of ashes remained.

Nerah did not kill Aarderius despite what Eledea have told him, instead he was placed under Nerah's watchful eyes at all time, never permitted to leave the castle. At the age 15, Aarderius grew up to be a handsome but grim lad, mainly due to his harsh upbringing. He snuck out the castle one night and went on an adventure across the Northland. During his travel that spanned for more than ten years, he planted his seeds in many of the women that he met on his travel. At the age of 27, Aarderius arrived at Elvenova, where he was arrested by Baltromes Lortheon who heard about him from Nerah's servants. Aarderius was sent to an underground research lab where the elves performed experiement on the Eleduin.

Upon hearing the news, Nerah went into grief. Nerah later travel across the Northlands, where he adopted several of Aarderius' bastards and gave them his surname, including Kenric Cersalie, Jathan Cersalie, Edwen Cersalie, Lynsei Cersalie and Serwynna Cersalie. Baltromes did not pay much attention to Nerah's act and continued the experiment on Aarderius.

Rise of the Eleduins:War of Three Races[]

Aarderius was eventually killed after all the experiments. After Baltromes Lortheo died and Jillan Lortheo became the new emperor, Nerah Cersalie began to plot his revenge. He swept across the Northlands looking for the rest of Aarderius' offsprings and brought them to his castle. Many mercenaries are hired and lords are contacted for secret audience. However, Jillan detected that something is amiss and summoned Nerah to Elvenova where he was killed by the Elven soldiers right after entering the palace wearing a sword at Jillan's request.

Nerah's Last Will[]

Nerah knew that he would be killed after being summoned, he left his will to Kenric Cersalie, his grandson, to continue Nerah's effort. Kenric did so, he even killed two of his brothers in order to gain Jillan's trust so he can continue to build the army. Thirty years later, Kenric and Lynsei's son Kesaron matured and was given the task of leading the rebellion that would soon shatter the Elven empire.

Rebellion:Eleduins United[]

With hundreds of Eleduins at his side, Kesaron hired mercenaries and called the human lords that his great-grandfather befrieded. He gathered more of his lost relatives and fielded an army of one thousand strongs. Kesaron knew that he wouldn't be able to defeat the elves with this small army so he decided to have a saboteur to destroy Elvenova, the elven capital city by blowing up the steamcore in the heart of the city.

Rebellion:Elvenova Destroyed[]

Orwyn Nerahvim, tasked with the nearly impossible task to sabotage steamcore set on his journey. However Orwyn was successful in destroying the steamcore. The Elven military was crippled in the process. Upon hearing about Orwyn's news, Kesaron marched on the city of Elvenova. Since most of the human lords are already unsatisfied with the Elven rule so there aren't little to none that are preventing the Eleduins from reaching Elvenova.

Rebellion:Death of Jillan the Magnificent[]

With the Eleduins at the gate and the military crippled, Jillan Lortheo had no choice but to try and negotiate with the Eleduin army. However, Kesaron refused to negotiate a peace with the elves and proceeded to attack. Jillan retreated to his castle and with his deadly weapons, killed most of the rebels but since the main force is disabled, the city fell to the Eleduins.

At the palace, Kesaron slain Jillan who tried to activate the steam monster the elves created hundreds of years before but failed. Afterward, Kesaron had the city of Elvenova burned to the ground, every inches scorched until there are no proof of former Elven presence in the city.

Rebellion:Great Purge[]

Though Jillan is killed, many elves and human loyalists still wander in the Northland. Kesaron later went into a war that lasted seven years with the rest of the Elven army and human loyalists. During these years, many elves and humans are killed while more Eleduins are produced as Kesaron promotes marriage between Eleduins. With the help of his good friend, Jervon Aurwynma, Kesaron took over most of the elven lands and secured them.

Building an Empire[]

As there are nobody to stop him, Kesaron proclaimed himself to be the Emperor of an Eleduin Empire. Kesaron had the city of Eledea built, and formed the religious order known as Nerahestraoun, which means "Legacy of Nerah" in the Elven tongue. During his reign, Kesaron maintained peace all over his territories and started many systems while abolishing the old ones. By the time Kesaron reached his fifties, Eleduin Empire had become the great empire in the north, strong and growing.
