Loth’lael is the arcane heart of the Elven nations and its Queen, Celebrian Lavellor, is a powerful Archfey. The city-state is very insular few visitors may enter the city proper. The lilac and silver trees that surround Loth’lael are so tall and ancient that their canopy has blocked out the sky, plunging the city into permanent twilight.
The main city was grown, not built. Celebrian and her sorcerers twisted the trees and moulded rock into buildings and streets then erected a living wall to protect it. Outsiders dwell in a district built outside the wall with more mundane means.
The Elves of Riela have pale hair and fair skin, dress in pastel colours and dedicate their lives to delicate artisan work, enchantments and magical study. They do not like to deal with other races and it is rare for non-elves to be allowed in.
