Symbol of the Popori

The popori kingdom is primarily made up of two distinct races. The elins—small female humanoids—were created by the goddess Elinu out of her own divine essence. The poporis are non-human beasts awakened to sentience by the elin. They are small and accustomed to not being taken seriously. Poporis are curious, candid, uncompromising, and utterly ferocious—resolute and tenacious defenders of nature. They are quick to learn and quick to judge. Lose a popori’s respect and you may never get an opportunity to regain it.


The Amanic War created deep scars on the continent of Arun. Elinu—the youngest goddess-daughter of the titan Arun—wept for her father’s pain and determined to protect him. From her own divine essence, she created the elins. When the task proved too much for the elins alone, they in turn awakened animals to create the poporis. Together, they have worked to repair, protect, and preserve the world they live in.

Poporis Today

Recognizing the argons for the terrible threat they are to all of nature, the poporis are willing and zealous allies of the Valkyon Federation. For as long as the federation’s aims and goals serve nature, Arun, and the memory of Elinu, the poporis will fight with the federation to protect the things they love above all else.

Capital City: Pora Elinu

The popori capital is a city in an enormous tree that grows in the middle of a sacred lake near Elinu's final resting place. The lake lies deep in a softly glowing forest that is eternally lit by stars not seen in other realms, where Balder's eyes light up the sky. High arched bridges and a single entrance to the city demonstrate the popori’s natural talent for defense. After recently suffering a terrible explosion, nature was quick to restore the city to its former splendor.
