When humans came to Acheron 13,000 years ago, the Albila were already there. Not even the Albila know how long they have been in Acheron System, but they are not natives. They are humanoid, tall and thin, with large unblinking metallic colored eyes and noseless faces. Over the millenia they have split into three distinct sub-species:
- Lunar Albila – This species dwells mainly under the crystal domes of Acheron’s moon, Celadon. They see themselves as the nobility and rulers of all Albila. In truth, the Albila monarch, the Queen of the Moon, does live in her palace on Celadon, but in reality, the Solar Albila and Nightsiders don’t have much loyalty to the moon-dwellers. Lunar Albila have silver skin, gold eyes, and hair that ranges from steel gray to black. Abilities as High Elves.
- Solar Albila – This species mostly lives on the sun-side of Acheron, living in both tribes on the scorching plains, or in the city-states. Lunar Albila have golden skin, silver eyes, and bronze or brass colored hair. Abilities as Wood Elves.
- Nightsiders – Banished by the other Albila for some forgotten crime, the tribe that became known as Nightsiders did not succumb to the Tribes of Night, but survived and thrived, adapting to the constant darkness. The Darksiders at various times have subjugated the Tribes but whenever a Night Lord arises from the Tribes, the dark Albila have not been able to hold onto rule and must fight for their continued survival. Their skin is the color of blued steel, with eyes of metallic red and black hair. Abilities as Dark Elves.
