They are powerful. Who are they? Elders, of course, also known as the Elder Race, are powerful beings that once lived on the island of Danu Talis until its destruction. In different parts of the world such as Egypt, Mesoamerica, and the Mediterranean some were worshipped as gods. Many live in Shadowrealms that are based on what Danu Talis was like before its fall.
Most Elders are born with human-like appearances. Many Elders' metabolism is linked to the solar or lunar cycles. However, when they grow older, their bodies permanently shift into a shape more befitting of their inner selves, many becoming deformed or monstrous. This alteration is known as the Change.
Thousands of years before the race of the humani appeared on the Earth, the Elder Race ruled the planet from the Isle of Danu Talis. They ruled it for some thousand years and became gods in the eyes of the humani and the other races of the planet. Soon though, after thousands of years of the Elder race ruling, the Original Twins of Legend fought against the forces of darkness atop the Pyramid of the Sun. The battle caused many natural disasters that eventually caused Danu Talis to sink below the sea and caused many Elders to perish. While many Elders survived, they were scattered across the world to live out new lives. Some hid out on Earth, while others hid out in their own personal Shadowrealms.
It is mentioned in the Warlock that because the Elders had defeated all other rivals they had begun to fight between themselves, leading to why Danu Talis had to sink.
Nowadays, they are remembered as the gods in just about every ancient race, including Greek, Norse, Egyptian, Aztec, and many others. Some stories called them Giants, others were called the Old Ones and gods.
The Elders are currently either hiding in Shadowrealms or residing with the Dark Elders.
