The Sylphs came into this world after a stange twist of fate combined elves, humans, and the elemental power of the wind. They went seven centuries with their existence only being a myth. It was said that they were fairies who had lost their wings and now they wander the forest in search of friends. Only after the Dwarves of West Calum nearly pushed through to the Land of Marenall and Sapieto was their existence confirmed.
When the humans and Elves were practically defeated a small army numbering less than a thousand swarmed the invading Dwarves and pushed them back. This kindness was returned when the Elves and Humans gave a large portion of their combined land for the Sylphs to inhabit. Since then their population has swelled to almost a hundred thousand.
During this time thye were invaded by the Vishkanyas who sought to steal the Sylphs powers. This act of aggression was short lived as the Sylphs, Humans, and Elves came down on them with full force.
The Sylphs territory Prospero is made up entirely of forest which more than accommodates their small population.
The Sylphs live in one extensive city built into the heart of the forest where the current king Sival rules over them. The King is appointed by the previous king or by the Kings next of kin should he die. But, since evil is such a rare quality in the Sylphs the idea that someone would abuse their power is nonexistent.
The Sylph’s enemies are the Dwarves, Half-Orcs and the Vishkanyas. They have also formed strong alliances with the humans and Elves and are currently fighting alongside them against the Dwarves and Half-Orcs. They have remained neutral to all other races. But, rely heavily on their allies and the Faries to supply them with weapons and training in exchange for their powerful wind magic.
