Elvaan (エルヴァーン) is a race available for play in Final Fantasy XI. They inhabit the Kingdom of San d'Oria, and Elvaan players starting their game there are rewarded with a San d'Orian Ring. They are strong and have a high Strength stat, making them effective for physical classes (such as Monk) and high Mind, making them successful healers. such as White Mages. They are the most religious of the enlightened races, and also the most imperialistic.

HistoryEdit

In the creation myth of Vana'diel the children of the gods, the Ancients, attempted to gain entry to Paradise, however the Gate Keeper of Paradise rejected them and destroyed their entire civilization. The goddess, Altana, having awoken from her slumber, wept over the destruction of the ancient race. Her tears cleaned away the wreckage and five divine tears gave rise to the five enlightened races (Elvaan, Galka, Hume, Mithra, Tarutaru). The God of Twilight, Promathia, however, was disgusted by Altana's weakness and so cursed the five races by bringing out their darkest emotions - the Elvaan's arrogance, the Hume's apathy, the envy of the Mithra, the cowardice of the Tarutaru, and the Galka's rage and curse them to constant internal conflict.
—Creation Myth of Vana'diel

In the game's creation myth, the goddess Altana weeps over the destruction of the ancient Zilart race. Her tears clean away the wreckage and give rise to the five enlightened races. The god Promathia, disliking the existence of the new races, brings out their worst emotions. The Elvaan were cursed with arrogance.

The Elvaan reached the height of their influence after the Age of Magic, wherein the Tarutaru monopolized the practice of magic. After the secrets of magic usage available to the other races, even the beastmen, the Elvaan developed powerful orders of knights. Elvaan influence expanded, until they went at war with Bastok and Windurst. Windurst allied with their enemies, the Yagudo, who were displaced by Elvaan imperialism. Bastok, with Hume ingenuity, invented firearms that gave them an advantage. The Elvaan's defeat at the Second Battle of Konschtat marked the end of this era, called the Age of Power.
