Lara is the homeland for the Elves of Aldium

History

The land of Lara predates recorded history though there and its not known how long Lara has been here for. Before the introduction of the Calendar the elves did not measure time and only recorded historical events based on what elven king ruled at the time.

Founding

The legends says that it was Yadira that choose the homelands of the elves during creation and gave them the great forests of Caran. Aside from that legend there doesn't seem to be any records regarding when the empire was first established by the elves

Expansion

The Kingdom of Lara's domain is all of the Silver forest and in the past the Kyrion Desert belonged to them when it was a forest but due to it slowly dying and becoming the wastelands that it is today they lost that territory ages ago to the Anvari. However there are still a large population of elves living there.

Government

Queen Arasinya Eleneth, the elven monarch, is the ruler of Lara. Although she is an absolute monarch, Aransinya is a liberal queen who understands that freedom is one of the highest ideals of the elven people. Many of the problems of the land are handled "in house" (factions guilds and so forth) and only then if it cannot be handled will it be brought up to the noble houses of the kingdom.

Military

The exact number of the Larian military is unknown, though its believed that 70% of the elven population have served willingly as volunteers over the years. Light infantry appear to be the main backbone of the elven military followed by support from spell casters. The elven military is known to have some of the best archery units in the known world.

Noble houses

The noble houses are part of the ruling body of the elven kingdom and they rule the major cities in the name of the elven queen as they see fit. (Though they follow her policies and very rarely do they go against them). Currently House Eleneth is the ruling monarchy house for the kingdom and has been for over 5 generations.

Geography

The elven kingdom of Lara is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Silver forest due to the Duncan Range the kingdom remains mostly isolated from the rest of Caran which also provides a natural territorial border for the kingdom itself. To the north west, the kingdom has set up a great wall which multiple entry points that go back and forth from the Kyrion desert to Caran.

Inhabitants

Lara is composed of almost nothing but elves though there are a few half elves most of them leave due to not being able to fit in or being looked down upon by elven society or they build communes for themselves to live in which is acceptable by the people of Lara.

Religion

The elven kingdom worships The Ancients and Yadira as their main religions. Though other religions are not unheard of they are not influential enough to affect the way of life and culture of the elven kingdom as a whole. Also in some areas they are frowned upon.

Symbols

The kingdom's symbol is the sun and the moon believing it to be the source of all live within the material plane. However they also have other lesser symbols which typically involved something regarding nature such as the great oak trees or a very inspirational river.
