Stats and General
A long time ago, before people and elves formed their united empire, which eventually surrounded majority of Valoran, including wild jungles of Kumungu - holy land of Faeries, Wisps and many mythical creatures, Elves lived by the Kumungu, just like they do now.
In exchange for babysitting children and mediating in contact with Gods, Elves promised to protect mythical inhabitnts of Kumungu and save them from. Elves planted young forest by the Kumungu and moved all animals from plagued parts of Kumungu to it, in order to make Thorns starve.
It took a lot of time for thorns to die, and not all of them died. Some of old and well-fed plants survived and backed off to southern parts of Jungle, where they still live in agony, whilst some wait for better times in Kumungu Jungle. However, afraid of Plague's comeback, the Elders ordered their wisest mage and best strategist, Sta'Drew, to protect the Jungle even more. When Elves left their homeland and started to live with human race in United Tribes, Sta'Drew refused to leave his office.
When Elves came back to their homeland, they wanted to give his stand to alive being and renew agreement with mythical Kumungians. But Sta'Drew hasn't died. As he aided the jungle, the jungle aided him. He wasn't looking like an Elf anymore: it was a soul of an Elf in Nature's body.
"Could I retire now, sir?", asked Sta'Drew with deep voice, when he saw new Leader of his nation. "I can't afford paying your retirement, but You are free now, let the Gods bless You. Come with me to Elder Palace, where the nation shall welcome You as a hero", replied Hamengeri, while bowing. "A privilege to serve."
But the courtly manner and celebrity life wasn't something Sta'Drew was keen on, nor was it something he liked. Fed up with them and his loads of free time, he joined the league to represent his nation, Force of Nature (we miss you, honey) and form alliances, that could prevent destructive wars and eventually plagues in the future.
